Keke Palmer Addresses This Wild Rumor About Her Career
Keke Palmer is not playing around, and she has decided to speak up after one of her fans made an inaccurate comment about her. The singer and TV host shared a post explaining that all is well with ABC.
A backer recently posted a message claiming that Keke's show, Strahan, Sara and Keke was canceled by ABC after she went viral in a video where she was in a Black Lives Matter protest and demanded the end of police brutality and racism.
Via Instagram addressed the matter by saying: “I want to speak on this simply because I hate the narrative that if you speak your mind as a black person that you will in some way be punished. I have seen this going around and at first I ignored but in this climate I realized this is a dangerous message to send to our generation and the generation coming up."
She went on to explain: "If anything my speaking out showed the corporations I work with how important my voice is and anyone that has a POV. The reality is I was never signed to ‘SSK’ as one would a seasonal show. This business is dynamic, and instead of thinking of me as a ‘series regular’ see me see me as a brand that works with the corporation Disney/ABC News and this particular show I was on is no longer.”
She continued: “That does not mean the relationship I have with them dies, that means it evolves. I hate talking about business because it can seem a bit weird and gets quite technical lol. But when I see such fear mongering comments I want to speak out so that no one ever feels or thinks that speaking out will cost them their job! I’m sure it can and has before, but let’s also recognize when it has not.
One fan replied: "That way more of us with our own minds speak out against any injustices we see. Trust me, walking in my truth has always made my blessings OVERFLOW and connect to those that are like-minded and not with those that are not. Do not believe this lie. Stay courageous and stay true because GOD HAS YOU ALWAYS. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️”
Another backer wrote: You're a young woman with an old soul. I love to hear your wisdom. You are blessed and strong. Keep sharing your brilliance."
This person revealed: "Had so much fun at a taping in January. Thank you for being so kind and taking a picture with us. Looking forward to what is next!"
This backer stated: "Thank you for not only being a voice that calls attention to wrongdoings but also a voice of reason & honesty‼️‼️ Thank you.❤️That should not happen, but there's no guarantees /protection when it comes to freedom of expression."
This social media user chimed in: "I love this, Keke. You are such a Great Woman👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏 Thank you for always speaking up and thanks for clearing this up. Always speaking so Clear and Eloquent Blessings!!!!"
Keke always speaks her truth.
