City Girls Member JT Faces Backlash for Tweet Praising ‘Not Too Crispy’ Dark Skinned Girls

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.
