Amanda Seales has a lot to say following the new season premiere of The Real.
The daytime talk show was back on our tv screens on Monday, where they debuted a brand new show segment called Black Lives Matter University, where co-hosts Loni Love, Jeannie Mai, Adrienne Bailon and new co-host Garcelle Beauvais interviewed Janaya Khan.
Khan is the international ambassador for Black Lives Matter.
Seales was unimpressed.
“Once again therealdaytime demonstrates it’s low class and even lower vibration,” she said on Instagram. “Just so we’re clear, this is an EGREGIOUS bite of my ‘Smart Funny & Black’ brand in 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.”
Seales walked away from the show in June — just six months after signing up for the show.
“My contract is up … and I didn’t renew it because it doesn’t feel good to my soul to be at a place where I cannot speak to my people the way they need to be spoken to,” Seales said at the time.
Seales said that she felt that it was not only her voice that wasn’t being heard… but Black voices in general. The new segment is likely a result of her abrupt departure.
“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,” she continued. “Happy Monday.
