It's easy to say 'open up the industry' when you are not in the industry and you don't know yet what the struggles are for the people who are in it- Pearl.

Late last week social media was abuzz with #OpenUpTheIndustry which was talking about how people are tired of seeing the same faces in entertainment doing so many jobs. Actress, businesswoman, model , radio and television host Pearl Thusi addressed the issue recently during an interview on V Entertainment.

"It's easy to say 'open up the industry' when you are not in the industry and you don't know yet what the struggles are for the people who are in it,"she explained.

Pearl went on to say when she saw the tweets she only read about ten and moved on. In her opinion the people talking about the issue need to have understanding before lashing out.

"I think instead of judging people who are in the industry the questions should be, 'how do we get in guys', 'Why is it so hard to get in' and 'How did you do it'", Pearl explained.
