Keke Palmer is known to use social media to sound off on controversial topics such as bullying, but this time, the Scream Queen’s social antics are rubbing one reality star the wrong way.
Over the weekend, Keke took some time for herself to binge watch a little guilty pleasure television. While catching up Bad Girls Club, Palmer was sharing her thoughts on Twitter, but the star’s commentary was taken to another level after BGC co-star Mehgan James got wind of it.
It all started when Keke responded to one Twitter follower’s question about who her favorite was (the fan suggesting that Mehgan was hers). “Ashley really,” Palmer wrote. “Meghan just too corny, her and Julie to me are so weak.”
James reposted Palmer’s comment and suggested that the actress sounded “like a hater.” Then … it was on like Donkey Kong.
Palmer then continued her rant on the social media website, writing that reality stars “must be able to separate the difference between someone being entertaining and them being likable. I’m so happy to be in the space in my life where I can accept that other ppl gonna always have their own feelings about me.”
She continued, “And understanding that half the folks that try to down play you are people that you would never be involved with anyway. It’s not a problem if you are an apple and they like oranges because there’s a whole group of people that love apples!”
On Monday morning, James continued to respond to Keke’s tirade, writing: “Miss keke, I’m sorry that I upset you so much so that you had to go on a rant . It seems to me that your ‘re worried about the wrong things.”
James then started to hit below the belt, going after Keke’s apparent “hygiene,” alleged promiscuity and making claims the star is sleeping with “multiple athletes.”
The reality star concluded with a tweet that read: “You would think that A list celebs like miss keke would not have time , the strenuous days of reading scripts to even watch bgc.”
Sound off: Did Mehgan take Keke’s comments too far?
Netflix’s ‘Step Sisters’ Is ‘Bring It On’ … But Way More Woke!
Netflix is getting ready to “Bring It On” … in more ways than one. The streaming service’s new flick Step Sisters is reminiscent of the 90s dance film, but delves deeper into racial themes like cultural appropriation, tokenization and interracial dating.
In the film Megalyn Echikunwoke (Arrow) plays the president of a black sorority who is tasked with teaching one of the campus’ white sororities how to step for a charity competition. At first glimpse the film seems to be stepping into a can of worms — and had folks on Twitter up in arms, but the creators and cast told HipHollywood it isn’t about cultural appropriation but instead cultural exchange.
“There’s a strong political message, and there’s a lot of racial content,” said Nia Jervier. “But I think that the pill that may be difficult to swallow is dipped in honey, because it’s funny.”
What also helps is that producer/writers like Lena Waithe (Masters of None), Chuck Hayward (Dear White People) and Ben Cory Jones (Underground) are behind the project – so you know it’s woke.
“At the end of the day, Jamila the lead character in our minds she’s reaching over to show them a part of our culture. It doesn’t dilute our culture,” said Jones. ” And I love that we can take stepping and evolve that into issues of race and culture.”
Step Sisters begins streaming on Netflix January 20th.
