Twitter Critics Accuse Ariana Grande Of Using ‘Blackface’ & A ‘Blaccent’
It seems like Ariana Grande is the latest celeb under attack on Twitter; this after critics accuse the songstress of appropriating Black culture in her interviews and image, using “blackface” and a “blaccent.”
While her latest photos and music video “thank you, next” features an overly-tanned Ariana, critics allege it’s borderline blackface, with one user claiming,“Y’all joked about Ariana being ‘black’ too hard now she’s over-tanning and has a blaccent.”
In addition, another mentioned, “y’all ended iggy azalea because of her blaccent but are silent about ariana grande now,” as another came to her defense stating, “the “ariana grande is doing blackface/blackfishing!!!” is so fake woke and takes up space in discussions where colorism and blackface actually need to be addressed. also i been peeped that none of the ppl complaining are even black so stay in ur lanes!!” #Socialites, thoughts?
