Keke Palmer Slams Rumors Talk Show Was Canceled Due To Her BLM Involvement

Published: Monday 20th Jul 2020 by Rashad

Keke Palmer is silencing the critics by setting the record straight about her ‘Good Morning America’ talk show ‘Strahan, Sara, & Keke.’

Taking to Instagram over the weekend (July 18), the 26-year-old singer-actress addressed murmurs the recently canceled show got the axe due to her highly publicized involvement with the Black Lives Matter movement.

Having made headlines the world over for her impassioned speeches at a number of rallies supporting the cause (as well as written op-eds), diehard fans began to draw connections between the timing of said headlines and the surfacing of reports the series would not be renewed for another season.

Tired of the chatter, look inside to see just what Palmer said to hush the noise:

I want to speak on this simply because I hate the narrative that if you speak your mind as a black person that you will in some way be punished. I have seen this going around and at first I ignored but in this climate I realized this is a dangerous message to send to our generation and the generation coming up. If anything my speaking out showed the corporations I work with how important my voice is and anyone that has a POV. The reality is I was never signed to “SSK” as one would a seasonal show. This business is dynamic and instead of thinking of me as a “series regular” see me see me as a brand that works with the corporation Disney/ABC News and this particular show I was on is no longer. That does not mean the relationship I have with them dies, that means it evolves. I hate talking about business because it can seem a bit weird and gets quite technical lol. But when I see such fear mongering comments I want to speak out so that no one ever feels or thinks that speaking out will cost them their job! I’m sure it can and has before, but let’s also recognize when it has not. That way more of us with our own minds speak out against any injustices we see. Trust me, walking in my truth has always made my blessings OVERFLOW and connect to those that are like minded and not with those that are not. Do not believe this lie. Stay courageous and stay true because GOD HAS YOU ALWAYS ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

    I’ve always said she’s a lot smarter than the music and videos she’s been putting out in the last couple of years, and it shows in this thoughtful response she gave. I remember when KeKe was made a regular after filling in for Sara. She was great with the guests and with her co-hosts, but a lot of people were on the Facebook page voicing their displeasure, and the show already appeared to be struggling. I think there were a number of factors, most importantly the ratings.

    Black people love victimizing themselves.

    Like damn, its tiring

    A black person doesn’t win an award, they start screaming racism, its because the person is black

    Normani is flopping and her career isnt taking of, they start screaming
    Its because she’s black, its because she’s dark skin, its racism in the music industry.

    I’m so tired.

      You really ARE stupid…YOU are the one going on about Normani! No one is obsessed EXCEPT you! And you STILL are! Fck you and the people/your accounts who support you or repeat anything you say! You ain’t shiiit and they ain’t either! 🤣 You tired alright….GO take a nap! 💤 Keeping up with all your fraud accounts got you sleepy lol..you’ve made up WHOLE accounts JUST to attack Normani! Why is she on your mind? 💯 🤳🏽
