Colorism is the practice of showing preference to those of a lighter skin color within groups of people of the same race or ethnic background.

“It’s been very painful to have women look like my mom feel like I’m not representing them. That I’m taking from them. Taking their men, taking their work, taking their truth. I didn’t mean to.” – @thandiwenewton

After the clip hit social media, Twitter users lblasted the 49-year-old actress’s remarks with one tweep mentioning that she “could’ve” denied the roles. 

“She could’ve denied roles like Zendaya and forced them to hire darker-skinned women,” wrote the tweep. 

“Does it get more tone-deaf, narcissistic and dismissive than this? And watch how people will sympathize with her,” wrote another tweep. 

“She could’ve you know… not taken those roles, but that’s just me…”

Wtf is she crying for? She could’ve easily denied rolls like zendaya and force them to hire darker skinned women https://t.co/Z3pewuMtQH— empress (@mrsglock305) February 3, 2022

You cannot be serious. “Sorry I’m the chosen one”? Does it get more tone deaf, narcissistic and dismissive than this? And watch how people will sympathize with her the privileged light skinned biracial actress instead of denouncing how harmful this video is. https://t.co/zoLg92o7sW— Jordan Sumbu (@JordanSumbu) February 3, 2022
