Princess of the classy clap back, Skai Jackson devotes some personal time to exposing racists. Twitter is in an uproar, divided over whether or not to support the former child star who played Zuri Ross on the Disney sitcom, Jessie.
Skai Jackson who stands at 4 feet 11 inches tall, knows a thing or two about being bullied and has volunteered time in the way of anti-bullying activism. Viral news regarding the 19-year-old former Disney star be-smudged her squeaky clean image. Her sexual escapades with the son of Solange Knowles, Daniel Julez Smith, earlier this year caused an uproar.
Needless to say, the child star was left humiliated and at one with anyone who has ever been cyberbullied. Jackson found her voice in defending those who have suffered as she has, especially in the area of racism.
Julez was quoted as having said in a thread amongst friends, ” I gave that dark b**** D*ck”; the colorism stemming from the green-eyed, pale-skinned 16-year-old nephew of Beyonce’ Knowles-Carter created another conversation around the song “Brown Skin Girl” and if what was sang in the song is being taught within the family.
In an Interview, Skai Jackson spoke at length regarding her personal duty to use her large platform to do the right thing. The actress told her fanbase she is committed to exposing racists 24/7. According to Jackson, her DMs are full of stories not only from her fanbase but also from celebrities with blue checks next to their names on Twitter who are too afraid to expose the racists who were racist toward them.
Since offering up her platform in the way of social justice, Skai Jackson was banned from posting on Twitter for 12 hours. As soon as she was allowed out of the birdcage/ Twitter jail the petite half African American, half Afro- Latina, resumed posting in the name of spreading social awareness of insidious societal harm.
Some fear that Skai has gone too far. Critics do not believe that Skai Jackson has the range to cover these issues nor to verify them. The danger is that someone will fabricate evidence of a racially motivated incident that is in reality, nonexistent.
