Skai Jackson has built quite the reputation for being the one you DON’T want to mess with on social media.
Having snatched the wigs of quite a few of her fellow celebs, the clapback Queen – despite boasting quite the innocent aesthetic – has truly proven herself to be #savage.
But, just in case some needed a reminder the 18-year-old is serving it via her official Twitter handle. Changing her name to ‘Queen of Exposing Racists,’ Jackson is calling by name people who are using their platforms to hoist hateful messages.
In the midst of the hottest spotlight in recent history being placed on anti-racist rhetoric, the actress is giving those who don’t stand in solidarity with the movement just the type of attention they deserve.

Amber Riley wants to keep the focus on what’s important and not get sidetracked by drama.
If you thought otherwise, you should definitely check out her recent interview on ‘Real Quick with Danielle Young.’ There, she dished on her extensive involvement in the Black Lives Matter movement – which has included protesting and drumming up awareness via social media.
However, when the 34-year-old was quizzed on the reports that brand her former ‘Glee’ co-star Lea Michele “racist,” she quickly shut down the conversation to redirect it to BLM. Of course, not without saying just enough to have tongues wagging.

‘Clarissa Explains It All’ star Melissa Joan Hart has got some explaining to do herself after she posted a photo to Instagram some are deeming ‘tone deaf’ in light of the heightened conversations around racial privilege and cultural sensitivity.
Taking to the platform Monday (June 1), Hart posted a still photo from the 1935 film ‘The Little Colonel’ to celebrate diversity on screen. The problem? The focal Black character in the movie, Mr. Bojangles, has long been pointed to as representative of a problematic trope in African American film history (namely due to the limitations of roles available to actors of color during the time period).
Regardless, the TV actress is learning the hard way about racial insensitivity. See what we mean inside:
A week after slamming racists in the wake of the death of George Floyd (as we reported here), ‘Star Wars’ star John Boyega took his action to the streets of London Wednesday (June 3) to remind protestors just how much Black lives matter.
“Black lives have always mattered,” said the 28-year-old actor. “We have always been important. We have always meant something. We have always succeeded regardless. And now is the time. I ain’t waiting.”
An impassion plea for change and racial equality, look inside to hear the speech that has the world talking:
