After The Shade Room posted a screenshot of Arizona Cardinals players Tony Jefferson and former player Brennan Clay demeaning dark-skinned black women, singer K. Michelle took to her Instagram account to blast the players publicly.

K.’s response;

“See normally I don’t say anything but if you have a platform you speak up. These two African American clown ass football players play for the @azcardinals Their comments towards the dark skin woman in this post was just disgusting. I did research and you 2 little hobbits have a long way to go before you have the right to crack jokes on anybody due to the color of their skin. You both seem to show symptoms and signs of the short dick syndrome. If you didn’t play football believe me NO ONE would be checking for you. You know you can be a lame with money right??? The black woman is the most beautiful most copied human. I find it sad that you are what we have as representation of the black man. I pray my son never grows up to have such a corrupted soul. @espn we are asking for a race trade we no longer need their services. It’s one thing to like what you like. I’m all for dating outside your race if you want, but to down another because of their skin tone? FOH. I’ve dated outside my race and will date whoever loves me, but this was just in poor taste. Really mean spirited.”

I mean, she really went in on them #yikes, but we’re here for black celebrities using their platforms to call out colorism.

Ladies, what are your thoughts?

Dear K. Michelle,

Thank you for shutting down these ignorant thugs! Thank you!


Disgusting behavior.


These young men went to the same school as I did. Believe me they deserve all of that and more.
