Keke Wyatt Cries As She Apologizes For Comments On Oppression Against Black People

Update #2 (Feb. 10th): Keke Wyatt is issuing an apology for her recent comments that sparked controversy.

While on Cocktails With Queens, she said had a change of heart about her initial comments that black people aren’t the only group that has faced oppression.

“I just want to start out by saying that I am truly sorry for the way I spoke and what I said. I feel like it could have come off way better. At the end of the day, I am a Black woman. Period. I am proud to be a Black woman. Period.”

She addressed the back and forth with the hosts of The Mahne Tea, where she made the remarks and said:

“I felt attacked, but of course, everything isn’t always shown like it should be, but that’s okay. At the end of the day, I represented myself, my people, my culture, my God, my family in a horrible manner. I know better.”

When asked about what the host said that made her reach her breaking point, she emotionally said:

“I love who I am as a woman. I don’t feel like I should have to explain myself. I’m doing my best. I just want to learn more about everything. There has never been a role that has been clear for biracial people. It’s like you’re d—ed if you do and you’re d—ed if you don’t. But at the same time, I know who I am as a woman and I identify myself as a Black woman.”

She added that the dispute reminded her of when she was bullied over her face during her childhood.

“I want my sisters to know that I love them. And I am sorry down to my d— bone marrow if I hurt. I did not mean to diminish our culture at all.”

She shared the moment on Instagram and wrote:

“Thank you @foxsoul @claudiajordan @syleenajohnson @thereallraye1 @msvfox for giving me the opportunity to take accountability for my words, to reflect, and to apologize. Thank you to the organizations, leaders, and fans that took the time to encourage and educate me with patience and kindness. Much respect to @tamikadmallory for your compassion and correcting me with wisdom and love. I’m human and my desire moving forward is to continue to grow and learn. Love y’all”

Original Story (Jan. 31st): Keke Wyatt is currently facing some backlash following comments she made regarding the oppression that the black community has faced. Video footage has surfaced online of Keke Wyatt’s recent appearance on the livestream show The Mahne Tea. During the viral clip, former Love and Hip-Hop: Hollywood cast member Milan Christopher is trying to express his opinions on some of the hardships African Americans have had to face, and are currently dealing with, due to their race. However, Keke Wyatt doesn’t seem too pleased with Milan Christopher’s comments and rolls her eyes at the camera. She also cuts him off as he is speaking and yells,

“And so have Mexicans and so have other people, honey. Black people are not the only ones that have gone through that!”

Despite being overtalked by Keke Wyatt, Milan Christopher tries to explain why he’s advocating for the black community however the songstress cuts him off again and yells,

“You have to understand Black people are not the only people that have been oppressed! They are not the only ones, my n*gga! Jewish people have been oppressed, okay. I can keep going.”

She continues and says that as a biracial woman she faces oppression from both white and black people.

“I’m biracial! We f*cking oppressed, ’cause Black people done made us feel like sh*t! White people make us feel like sh*t! You don’t know that life!”

See the clip.

In a past interview with Essence, Keke Wyatt revealed that she identifies as a biracial woman. Her mother is white and her father is of African-American and Native American descent.

Following her heated exchange on the livestream, many people took to Twitter to call Keke Wyatt out for her comments.
