You can call Lark Voorhies a lot of things, just don’t call her African-American. The troubled Saved by the Bell star made the declaration on Instagram over the weekend, posting an image of herself with the following caption:

“No, I am not black. I am American! I was born in America. I was not born in Africa, therefore I am not african. Africans are not african-americans! LV”

Well, alrighty then. Lark, or at least someone pretending to be Lark, explained her statement in an additional IG post, writing:

“Typical Media/America brainwashing the innocent and naive. Last time I checked, and correct me if I’m wrong, but black is the color of a crayon, and a tire. I am neither of those! I am of brown decent. The politically incorrect term, African-American is a total misnomer. I technically cannot be split into two continents with no specific nation to claim. I’m indigenous to the land that ‘they’ stole and renamed America. #ImNotBlack #ImNotAfricanAmerican Were you guys aware, that Jesse Jackson coined the coined the term African-American? $$$ #TheMoreYouKnow. LV.”

And there you have it. What WE do not have however is legitimate proof that the account these messages are being attributed to is legit since Voorhies does not have a validated Twitter or IG profile.

To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
