Natalie Portman has been on the Twitterati radar ever since she wore a custom made Dior cape, with names of snubbed female directors, to the Oscars 2020. She showed the cape off during the red carpet event of the 92nd Academy Awards. Natalie custom fit the names of the eight women directors who were not included in the nominations on her cape. Multiple reports suggest that she was trying to spread a message of inclusivity at the Oscars 2020. However, the whole act backfired on her as people are calling her a ‘hypocrite’ for she has no female directors in her production company apart from herself.
