Evelyn Lozada‘s public relations crisis gained a fresh pair of horrid legs this week when YouTubers joined efforts to hold her accountable for what many deem to be anti-black behaviour.
The Reality TV star, who now identifies as Afro-Latina, has seen her brand take a hit following her feud with her ‘Basketball Wives’ costar OG Chijindu. A feud, which has seen Evelyn call the African athlete a monkey and use several racist tropes to mock, degrade and humiliate her.
Unfortunately for her, it has backfired….and an effort to slam claims that she is racist by pointing to her own African heritage was stifled by the resurfacing of the tweet below.
How YouTube’s stars are responding to the drama….and claims that OG has been fired from the series?
Tune in below…
Twitter was just as enraged…
Evelyn Lozada is deeply anti-Black. Like many anti-Black Latina women (who are NOT Afro-Latina) she capitalizes on anti-Blackness to prop up her desirability.
women who aren’t Black but date Black men deeply understand that they’re desirable because of a hatred of Black women

Evelyn has never claimed to be black or a afro-latina until now. It’s a convenient excuse for her to use because she’s catching flack for being anti-black and using the n word. The other black women on that cast should be ashamed for standing by her. #basketballwives

I know Evelyn is mad because her light skin privilege isn’t working anymore. America see right through your bs. Everytime you get called out for being anti black you always wanna pull the ” oh but I’m Afro-latino. You can’t take the heat

Evelyn Lozada is what happens when a non-Black person lives in Black spaces and held at top tier by Black men & women who peddle anti-Blackness and mixed fetishisms.

Evelyn Lozada is just like y’all friend. Picks and chooses when to be black and when to be Latina all while still be colorist and anti-black.
Hate to see it

Does Evelyn realized that even if she is black she still can be anti black? Just old and dumb
