Sylvester Stallone is being slammed on Twitter after forgetting to thank two of the men responsible for his Golden Globe win for Supporting Actor. Stallone took home the honor for his work in Creed, and was slammed by folks on Twitter after failing to shoutout his co-star Michael B. Jordan, or the film’s director, Ryan Coogler.
Even Ava DuVernay was upset over the omission, tweeting this following Stone’s acceptance speech:

While it may have appeared to viewers at home that Stallone forgot to sing the praises of his co-workers, it’s not entirely true. In fact, before exiting the stage, the actor thanked Coogler, adding, “You did it all, I just hung on.”
