Skai Jackson is doing her part to bring attention to those spewing racist hate, but some are questioning whether using her public platform to shame alleged racists is being dangerous. The former Disney Channel star made the announcement on Friday to her over 300,000 fans that she wanted to publicly name alleged racists.
“If you know a racist and would like to expose them, dm me on Instagram and give me all videos/ screenshots , Instagram and what school they go to. I might not answer but I do see it and will expose,” she wrote on Twitter.
Within minutes, fans started flooding Skai’s DM with alleged racists from their schools, and the actress began publicly posting and naming them. She even called out specific schools when fans had provided her with multiple alleged examples of racism.
“I’m exposing St Joseph Academy in Baton Rouge. Schools should be teaching their students that issues like this need to be talked about,” Skai wrote.
While posting many responses from around the country, the actress urged others:
“If you know a racist, don’t be shy! Tweet me the receipts.”
The actress, who currently voices the character Glory Grant for the animated superhero show, “Marvel Rising,” had outed so many alleged racists that she even changed her online profile name to “queen of exposing racists.”
While many were praising Skai Jackson for taking the initiative to not let anyone off the hook for being racist, others questioned whether it was the right thing for her to as she was exposing sensitive information to people who may even be minors.
“Skai that’s not right at all you can exposed [sic] them but give out there school THERE state that puts them in danger,” one fan noted.
“Racist people should be exposed.. why are you questioning that?” Skai responded to the criticism.
Meanwhile, protests for Black Lives Matter after the killings of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor continue on across America.
