Jatavia Johnson, known to most as JT of rap group City Girls, has come under fire for a past tweet promoting colorism.
In her tweet, JT set out to praise dark-skinned Black women — but not those who are “tooo” dark.
The 2018 tweet reads:
“I love pretty dark skin girls (emoji) not tooo [sic] crispy na! But the milky ways be the sh*t”
As the old tweet began to circulate, fans began calling her out.
JT hopped on Twitter to address the backlash…sort of.
Internalized colorism is real.
