Oprah, Gayle, and Ava have had enough!

 

The multi-talented trio is often referred to as ‘Auntie’ in a respectful way via social media users and fans; nonetheless, Oprah Magazine published an article where they thoroughly explain why Oprah, Gayle, and Ava don’t like it.

 

Ava DuVernay expressed that the reference seems ageist when she stated: "Auntie Ava? Why? Am I that old?!" she asked…"Because I don’t feel that old! And it’s not a respect thing…Auntie Ava, like…Aunt Jemima?"

 

Oprah Winfrey stated: I cringe being called Auntie or Mama by anybody other than my nieces or godchildren."

 

Gayle King stated: "I get that it’s a sign of respect, but no one's calling Beyoncé Auntie Beyoncé!"
