In the past, multiple celebrities have been the victims of faked sex tapes. The latest young woman to fall victim to the detrimental Internet hoax is “Joyful Noise” actress KeKe Palmer. A couple of weeks ago a six-month-old sex tape featuring aspiring rapper Tadoe receiving fellatio from an unidentified woman alleged to be KeKe, resurfaced on the Internet. Tadoe later came forward and said that the young woman in the video is not KeKe; however, a lot of damage had already been done at that point. KeKe recently broke her silence about the whole fiasco and as to be expected, she’s pretty upset about it.
“Can you believe that? My thing is, I always try to use myself as an example,” she said during an interview with The Jasmine Brand. I realized at a young age, okay, I have a platform. People know me because of my work. Let me use it for a good thing.”
KeKe added that the sex tape hoax was bothersome because she knows that there are a lot of young girls who look up to her.
“And I never want young girls to think that is okay. Every now and then there are some things you can throw over your shoulder. But that, that was too much and I’ve done too much good in my life to deserve that type of treatment.”
The 20-year-old starlet went on to say that the entire situation was especially hurtful because it was an attack staged by her own people.
“Everything that I do, I always think about the young women who are like me out there, that want to be heard, that want to be seen, that want more positivity, that want more things to feed their mind. And then to come back and see my own people try to take me down like that, it kills my heart because it’s like everything I do, I do for us.”
“So it just kills me…it just killed me because I felt like why? Why? What did I do to deserve it? All I did was take a picture with a fan, and now you turning it into something terrible. I didn’t understand it. I literally was at a loss. But I did want to set the example, it’s ok to stand up for yourself. It’s ok to stand up for yourself. I don’t give a damn about being no celebrity. At the end of the day, this is not right. This is not right for you to do this to me and I won’t allow it. I won’t.”
Poor KeKe. We’re glad she cleared that up.
