Over the weekend, O’Shea Jackson Jr. came under fire for a comment that he was alleged to have made about black women. If you missed the drama, allow me to explain. The trouble began when a woman tweeting under the name Jackie Garcia, who was apparently mistaken for Jackson’s current girlfriend, supposedly told a woman on Twitter that she would never be O’Shea’s type because she is “ugly, dark and dumb.”
“Ugly, dark and dumb. You mad Shea don’t like your type?” the tweet read.
From there, a random screenshots popped up of a comment supposedly left by Jackson beneath an ex-fan’s photo, which reads:
“You angry black females kill me. She’s my ex. The women I prefer ain’t your f*ck*ng business anyways.”
After catching wind of the drama, we reached out to Jackson’s people, and they pretty much confirmed that all of the screengrabs of comments said to have been made by O’Shea were fabricated.
“O’Shea Jackson Jr. is not in a relationship,” a spokesperson for the actor told Madame Noire. “The supposed direct tweets and comments in response to old photos including the ones that reference race are fake.”
In other words, it’s okay to add him back to your Man Crush Monday roster if you’d like.
