​"The only white people that thank Jesus are Republicans and ex-crackheads."

Award shows have become a safe space for Hollywood liberals to air their grievances, flaunt their virtue, and piss conservatives off. Monday night's 70th Annual Emmy Awards were no exception.

Though this time conservatives got to gloat: The show's ratings hit a ​record-low.


Here are the five moments that had Republicans yelling at their TV (or at Twitter).


1. "Black-ish" actress Jennifer Lewis showed up dressed in all fully-branded Nike attire to show solidarity with former NFL quarterback and current free agent and Nike model ​Colin Kaepernick.

“I am wearing Nike to applaud them for supporting Colin Kaepernick and his protest against racial injustice and police brutality,” Lewish told ​Variety at the red-carpet before the show. “What can I do? What can I do that’s meaningful? I’ll wear Nike. I’ll wear Nike to say thank you. Thank you for leading the resistance! We need more corporate America to stand up also.”


But conservative singer Joy Villa, who infamously wore a ​gown that featured the words "Make America Great Again" at the 2017's Grammy Awards, ​slammed Lewis' outfit as "degrading."


“It is really stupid. They can’t even get beautiful with what they are doing. When they protest they get ugly. They get degraded," she told FOX Business on Tuesday.


A Nike campaign featuring Kaepernick boasting the tagline, "Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything," has been seen as a dig at many a snowflake on the right, including the president, who took offense when the athlete began taking the knee in games during the anthem. The campaign even drove some conservatives to ​put their own Nike swag to the fire.


2. Host Michael Che said the only white people who thank Jesus are "Republicans and ex-crackheads."

The "Saturday Night Life" star made the inflammatory remarks during the show's opening ​monologue.


"My mother is not watching. She says she doesn’t like watching white award shows because you guys don’t thank Jesus enough." he said. "That’s true. The only white people that thank Jesus are Republicans and ex-crackheads."


Needless to say, conservatives did not take kindly to Che's jab, which many viewed as an attack on middle America and Christ himself. 

3. When Che's fellow host and "SNL" star Colin Jost joked that Roseanne Barr's show was picked up by white nationalists.


After mentioning shows that were cancelled and then picked up by another network, like "Brooklyn 99," Jost said: "Roseanne was canceled by herself, but picked up by white nationalists."


Roseanne's show was ​cancelled back in May after she posted a racist tweet.

4. "Glow" director Jesse Peretz's wife used body art to campaign against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Sarah Sophie Flicker, an organizer for the Women's March, decorated her arm with the phrase "Stop Kavanaugh" and the US Capitol switchboard number. Conservatives, who are very sensitive about Kavanaugh's ​embattled confirmation process, were blowing caskets.



5. "Westworld" actress Thandie Newston said she didn't believe in God.

Like Che's comments about Jesus and crackheads, Newton touched a sensitive nerve among conservatives when she declared: "I don't even believe in God."


"But I'm gonna thank Her tonight," the winner for best supporting actress in a drama added, further angering conservatives who took her words as a contradiction to the Bible.

Conservative commentator Ben Shapiro took it a bit more lightly.
