This week, attorneys for Michael Oher filed three subpoenas to request documents from the production company behind the Oscar-winning film The Blind Side. The request comes on the heels of Oher’s claims that he was placed in the conservatorship with the Tuohys when he was 18 years and that he did not receive any money from the award-winning movie, which grossed $309 million on a $29 million budget.
Michael Harriot joins Karen Hunter to discuss the controversy.
About Michael Harriot
Michael Harriot is a journalist, author and cultural critic who has been hailed as “one of the most eloquent writers in America.” His acerbic wit, biting commentary, and investigative reporting have influenced everything from presidential politics to pop culture. As the originator of the phrase “invited to the cookout,” his social media posts contextualizing history are shared by millions, while his award-winning journalism has appeared in the Washington Post, The Atlantic, your television, and his mother’s refrigerator. He was one of the first journalists to ring the alarm on the online underground movement called the alt-right, a little-known group called the Proud Boys and was among the first to propose a then-radical idea: student loan forgiveness.
