They say the hardest tea to swallow is realiTEA!
Keke Palmer just threw an epic tea party in honor of Kylie Jenner, but don’t worry, it’s not what you think. While most people use Instagram as an outlet to throw shade, Keke just did the complete opposite. Instead, the actress/singer took to her page to upload a meme of Jenner, making the reality TV star the subject of a few bigger issues in our society, including cyber-bullying and the misconception of perception vs. reality.
In the lengthy post, Keeks points out that the same folks who labeled Kylie “ugly” as a child, are the ones who ridiculed her for later altering her appearance. Palmer also blames people for relying too much on social media and television to define “reality,” as part of the problem too.
“We don’t think that this young woman deserves the attention she receives because of the message it sends but we don’t even think about the fact that for years the whole world damn near agreed that she was ugly. A CHILD, that girl was a child and she was bullied and named ugly and not as a character but as HERSELF … And unlike some that experience such ridicule she had the $$$ to change, she “fixed” what the world said was broken and it worked! Now you are mad that it was that easy? When the generation has already been force fed to love things that are false and appear as real. We are confused!”
Bravo! Kylie may have a lot of haters, but clearly Keke is with her! Hopefully 2017 will prove to be a powHERful year for bonding among women in entertainment.
Whether it’s serving up truth to the haters or cheffin’ up bacon on Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party Keke Palmer manages to do both with ease. Y’all better get y’all one who can do both.
