Racism is no longer being tolerated...

And many big companies and TV names have been outed in the last few weeks for their use of blackface and racial stereotypes... including 30 Rock. But firstly, let's start from the beginning...

The Black Lives Matter movement has completely taken over the world...

Since the death of George Floyd, protests for the movement have been happening across the globe in volumes we've never seen before.

This kind of police brutality has been happening for centuries now...

But George's death has sparked an outrage like never before.

Thousands upon thousands of people have been taking to the streets in protest...

And they are all marching for one thing: For the blatant racism and injustice in this country to be brought to an end.

Protests have been happening across the pond too...

Hundreds of thousands of people have been taking to the streets in the United Kingdom, Germany, Spain, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

We are witnessing history in the making...

And people are continuing to demand justice. But some horrifying things have been emerging from our country's past...

Many huge names have been boycotted after accusations of racism have risen against them...

Including Walt Disney World and Kellogg's cereal.

And the one that really got people's attention...

The Aunt Jemima brand.

A woman named Kirby took to Twitter this week to expose the truth about Aunt Jamima.

She posted a video to explain the brutal, and very racist, history behind the famous brand.

Kirby instantly got to the facts...

"Did you know the name of Aunt Jamima means 'slave men' of the plantation south?" she asks boldly. She then exposed the truth behind the brand's name by asking, "Did you know the founder Chris Rutt, a white man, got the name after attending a minstrel show - think blackface."

She continued to expose Chris Rutt...

"Did you also know he hired former-slave Nancy Green... who would go around cooking pancakes and telling people about the 'good old south'."

Kirby's video was an instant hit...

And it seems that a lot of people agree with her opinion on Aunt Jemima.

Many are feeling relieved that the brand has been exposed for what it truly stands for...

And Aunt Jemima has been branded as "harmful" and "full of errors."

But the biggest question being asked...

Why has Aunt Jemima only just been called out for racism now? Its products have always had the same branding which clearly shows racist ideologies.

After the immense backlash...

Quaker Oats quickly announced that after over 130 years, they will be removing Aunt Jemima from all packaging and they will be giving the product a much-needed rebrand.

This is the change that we desperately need...

But things are far from okay.

Several famous faces here in America have been called out for dressing up in blackface several years ago...

Including talk-show hosts Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, and Howard Stern.

Even though they've all now profusely apologized for their actions...

This just goes to show the terrible attitude that we as a country have held towards the black community for many, many years.

And now...

Popular sitcom 30 Rock has made the decision to remove several episodes from streaming websites due to the fact that they feature actors wearing blackface.

4 episodes were found to feature blackface...

2 of which showed Jane Krakowski’s Jenna character in blackface.

The episodes are being removed from subscription streaming services Hulu and Amazon Prime...

And they have also been made unavailable for sale on purchase platforms such as iTunes and Google Play.

They will no longer air on traditional TV either.

They were pulled at the request of NBC Universal executive producers Tina Fey and Robert Carlock. A source told Vulture the 4 episodes, some of which have already vanished, should be gone by the end of this week.

The actress wants to do better...

"As we strive to do the work and do better in regards to race in America, we believe that these episodes featuring actors in race-changing makeup are best taken out of circulation," Fey wrote in a letter to the platforms that streamed or sold 30 Rock.

She wanted to apologize to the people who were offended by the stereotypical skits...

"I understand now that ‘intent’ is not a free pass for white people to use these images. I apologize for the pain they have caused. Going forward, no comedy-loving kid needs to stumble on these tropes and be stung by their ugliness. I thank NBCUniversal for honoring this request."

Even though Fey's message was generally quite well received...

Many fans weren't impressed and they feel that she is only apologizing because she got caught out.

And as this Twitter user pointed out...

If Fey cared so much, she would have minded doing the episodes in the first place.

How far will Fey be taking this?
