Victoria Rowell, who rose to fame playing Drucilla Winters on the daytime drama "The Young and the Restless," blasted the show on Twitter this week for its lack of racial diversity. Rowell’s tweets coincided with the show’s 41st anniversary, and included this zinger:

"Young & Restless on air for 40 years, loyally watched by their absolute competitive-edge audience (blacks) & not ONE black Exec PRODUCER?" 

Mekeisha Madden Toby covered the story over at The Wrap and also captured Rowell’s tweets on Storify.
