Watch: Tearful KeKe Wyatt Apologizes After Backlash for Belittling Black Oppression

Published: Wednesday 10th Feb 2021 by Rashad

As we reported here, a fiery rant from KeKe Wyatt landed the singer in hot water with fans and critics after many perceived her words as diminishing of centuries of disenfranchisement experienced by African Americans.

Wyatt – who had taken to the Bigo platform ‘The Mahne Tea’ in late January – entered into a heated debate with other guest, reality star Milan Christopher, about how the oppression of Black people compares to that of other races.  The hot topic instantly sent KeKe into defense mode as she fired off quotes like ‘Black people are not the only oppressed people’ and ‘Black people make biracial people feel like sh*t.’

Once the public at large got wind of her comments, critics took to the diva’s social media handles in droves to slam her controversial opinion.  The ongoing criticism drove Wyatt to FOX SOUL recently to issue a tearful apology on the Claudia Jordan-led talk show, ‘Cocktails with Queens.’
See it inside:

 

While on ‘Cocktails With Queens,’ Wyatt responded to criticism that she – a biracial woman – does not identify as Black.

“I just want to start out by saying that I am truly sorry for the way I spoke and what I said. I feel like it could have come off way better. At the end of the day, I am a Black woman. Period. I am proud to be a Black woman. Period.”

When asked why she responded to the other ‘Mahne Tea’ guests in such a ferocious manner, she said:

“I felt attacked, but of course, everything isn’t always shown like it should be, but that’s okay. At the end of the day, I represented myself, my people, my culture, my God, my family in a horrible manner. I know better.”

Elaborating on the previous point, KeKe shared:

“I love who I am as a woman. I don’t feel like I should have to explain myself. I’m doing my best. I just want to learn more about everything. There has never been a role that has been clear for biracial people. It’s like you’re d—ed if you do and you’re d—ed if you don’t. But at the same time, I know who I am as a woman and I identify myself as a Black woman.”

Wrapping up, she wanted to remind viewers her original intent was never to diminish the oppression of Black people.

“I want my sisters to know that I love them. And I am sorry down to my d— bone marrow if I hurt. I did not mean to diminish our culture at all.”

    Some people just need to understand to KEEP your views to yourself and they can avoid a lot of unwanted outcomes. Don’t cry boo you were proud when you allowed your mind to express yourself. SMH… The power the shut up is with us all learn to tap into it moving forward. To all celebrities with “smart” opinions.

      Why should someone “shut the f*** up” just because their views may not be liked? Should Martin Luther King have just “shut the f*** up and kept his views to himself?” because most wouldn’t agree? It’s you who should just shut the f*** up, sir. You don’t own the world.

    People JUST don’t like the truth! What she said was #FACTS. Black people screaming like lunatics and DEMANDING as usual 💯 but black privilege isn’t a thing, no? Well, they always get their way. This will not continue forever. People will rise up and react eventually. All you are doing is turning everyone against you. Instead of UNITING, you are DIVIDING. But that’s the left’s game to stay in power anyway.

    Interesting that she doesn’t apologise to the guy she shot down and refused to let speak.
