KeKe Palmer Responds to Backlash for Saying EBT Cards Should Only Buy Healthy Foods

Published: Tuesday 10th Nov 2020 by Rashad

‘Virgo Tendencies’ singer KeKe Palmer has a tendency of ruffling feathers with her outspoken nature on social media, a habit that’s earned her harsh criticism over the years.

As such, it came to the surprise of few when the triple threat diva was the center of controversy for a now-deleted tweet that saw her suggest EBT card purchases be limited to healthy foods.

Though she eventually removed the post from her Twitter profile, its damage was done quickly as it incited a number of fiery comments – many asserting Palmer’s recommendation (given her assumed financial advantages) was insensitive to people who rely on the governmentally-assisted food program.

Eventually tired of the hoopla, KeKe returned to social media to offer a lengthy clapback.

    If her point was to make healthy food affordable and available to people that can’t afford it then THAT’S WHAT SHE SHOULD HAVE SAID. What she said was a dig at ppl who get food stamps and BÏTCH that’s lame because millions more families are needing food stamps now due to this pandemic. She’s a tacky bïtch for that and yeah she definitely lost me, used to be a fan. Corny bïtch wit her whack äss music. Imagine if ppl could buy her album with EBT and they STILL DIDNT!! Haaa lame bïtch
