Amanda Seales Drags The Real For Using Her Ideas In New Segment
Amanda Seales quit The Real just months into her position as a permanent hostess due to feeling as though producers were trying to censor her ideals and stifle her stances on Black issues. She ultimately made the decision to expose what was happening behind-the-scenes that led to her decision.
Amanda revealed an instance in which a white executive producer was put in charge of a Black segment. When Amanda spoke up about it, she was chastised.
'I did a ‘Smart, Funny, and Black’ game on ‘ The Real ’ and I was so excited to get to play. They assigned it to the one White woman producer. But we have three Black women producers and one Black guy producer. So, I was like, ‘Why are you producing this?’ And she said, ‘Oh because so-and-so assigned it to me.’ And I said, ‘But, why would you be producing this? You’re a White woman. You don’t understand what we’re going to be talking about.’ Now, she could have said, ‘Well, actually I grew up in this culture if that was the case.'
She took to Instagram to slam the new segment called Black Lives Matter University that seems to be a ripoff of the Smart, Black, and Funny concept that she presented.
'Once again therealdaytime demonstrates its low class and even lower vibration. Just so we're clear, this is an EGREGIOUS bite of my "Smart Funny & Black" brand in an attempt to bring black awareness into the programming of The Real. They couldn't find ANY OTHER WAY to do this without it being a bite of my creation. Yes, I'm saying this on social media because the CONTINUED thievery of black people's work (even when supported by other BIPOC) needs to be called the F out and also because this is the most energy I'll give it before going on with my day and creating more dopeness that will inevitably be pilfered by the less talented/ethical/ancestrally connected individuals of our species. Happy Monday. VOTE![Knowing networks, they did this bcuz they knew I'd post and it would boost ratings.]'
