‘Nothing in This World’ singer KeKe Wyatt is in a world of trouble after taking to social media to lend a fiery rant some say downplayed centuries of mistreatment experienced by African Americans.
Wyatt – a regular “talent show” judge on the Bigo platform – took time from weighing in on guests’ vocal abilities to weigh in on social issues, namely what she suggested was an undue monopoly Black people have on “oppression.”
During a heated debate with reality star Milan Christopher, the songstress challenged the notion of which racial groups, ethnicities, and nationalities have experienced the most disenfranchisement throughout history by pointing to Mexicans and Jews as examples of people who have experienced similar social injustices.
At the height of her argument, Wyatt even asserted bi-racial people (like herself) have been marginalized at the hands of Black people – a notion that set Twitter alight.
See what we mean inside:
In the video above, captured by our friends at TheMahneTea, Wyatt screamed:
‘You have to understand Black people are not the only people who have been oppressed! Jewish people have been oppressed. I’m bi-racial and we’ve been oppressed because Black people make us feel like sh*t and White people make us feel like sh*t.’
Needless to say, her dismissive and divisive commentary earned a swift backlash from social media commenters.

As of time reported, KeKe has yet to respond to the hoopla.
