Singer Keke Wyatt went viral for all the wrong reasons this month when during an appearance on Fox Soul, she dismissed oppression against the Black community — pulling a cringeworthy All Lives Matter moment.
“Black people are not the only ones who have gone through that. Look at the Jews!” a frustrated Wyatt told the shocked co-hosts of the show.
“Okay pro-Black, alright praise God, go head sweet sugars,” she quipped. “I don’t understand. We biracial, right. We love everybody, but then you got your certain Black folks that just ‘n*gga, n*gga, n*gga, n*gga’… 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. I’m biracial! We f*ckin’ 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!”
After the supreme dragging the former reality television star received from viewers, it seems she’s had a change of heart.
“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 said on Cocktails With Queens.
“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.”
