Nancy Lee Grahn, of General Hospital fame, didn’t like Viola Davis’ Emmy speech, and the Internet was quick to criticize her for her tone deaf tweets. So, she profusely apologized.

First, Grahn tweeted out the following about Davis’ speech: “I wish I loved Speech, but I thought she should have let @shondarhimes write it.

A little later on, she tried to qualify her position: “Viola Davis winning lead actress Emmy’s historic. My upset is acting awards dont fix racial injustice. As an actor I see how irrelevant we r. I never mean to diminish her accomplishment. I wish I could get her roles. She is a goddess. I want equality 4 ALL women, not just actors.”

Then, Grahn began her apology: “I apologize 2 anyone who I offended. I’m women advocate since I became one. After reading responses, I hear u and my tweet was badly phrased. Schooled. As surrogate 2 last democratic presidents I thought I needed no lesson in equality. I was wrong. Please accept my apology.”
