Real Housewives of Atlanta newcomer LaToya Ali is being accused of colorism and anti-Blackness after a video of her trashing a former friend resurfaced online.
Ali posted a video to YouTube titled “Story Time: The Time I Beat Up My Best Friend.”
In the video, Ali details the incident, and in one part of the video, she says: “She has huge Donkey Kong lips. Y’all just close your eyes. Just Imagine a face with two pillowcases as lips.”
The Atlanta housewife continued, “Now open your eyes. She wore single braids and every time she would swing her hair, a braid would fall out. You see that braid that’s just lingering around in your neighborhood, yea it’s probably hers.”
Ali, who is already proving to be unpopular with RHOA viewers thanks to her repeatedly shade-throwing at fellow newbie Drew Sidora, is being called out on social media for her perceived colorism.
“She uses her features to describe what makes her ghetto? White supremacist in light-skinned Black face,” one Twitter user wrote. Another chimed in, “@andy please be sure to discuss the horrible and racist video
@latoyaforever made about her former friend.”
Show producer Andy Cohen has yet to address the video.
During one of her first appearances on the show, Ali revealed that she was “separating” from her husband. She then rubbed Sidora the wrong way when she added, “you can do what you want when you’re separated.” Drew disagreed, saying, “What? Who says that? You’re still married. What vow did you take?”
Things have not been good between them since.
