Actor Woody McClain caught some negative backlash over a racial joke he told on Twitter a while back. TheYBF.com caught up with the New Edition Story star at ESSENCE’s Black Women In Hollywood event to ask him about it. Find out what he said inside…
New Edition Story breakout star Woody McClain made his way to ESSENCE’s Black Women In Hollywood event last week to celebrate all of the bad a** black women in the industry.
The YBF actor came under fire recently after someone dug up some old tweets he fired off via Twitter that seemed to be a shot fired at black women. But, it’s not what everyone think it is, according to Woody.
YBF Correspondent MJ asked Woody about the tweet and the negative backlash he received from it. Here’s what he had to say:
“The original tweet was ‘If it ain’t white, it ain’t right.’ That’s comedy! It’s like saying, ‘Once you go black, you never go back.’ Somebody took that tweet and added more tweets to it. Photoshop is undefeated."
The young actor said he comes from a comedy background and the tweet was never meant to disrespect black women. He said he always pushes for black love.
He said all of the negative backlash he received hurt his feelings, BUT he learned a good lesson from it.
TheYBF.com also caught up with Anthony Hamilton, “Real Housewives of Atlanta” Kandi Burruss (will she be returning for another season?), “The Real” co-host Loni Love, and Master P’s daughter/singer Cymphonique Miller.
