Apparently, some viewers of the 2020 BET Awards weren’t pleased with Marsai Martin’s hair and teeth, as the young actress served as a presenter during the prestigious ceremony.
Martin, now, has responded to her critics via social media. “So I was on Twitter and a lot of people have been addressing my hair or have been talking about my hair and how it looks like a grandma’s wig,” Martin sarcastically said while pulling on her hair.
“And they’re talking about my veneers and this doesn’t look like a veneer to me,” Martin continued while taking out her retainer.
“And it’s hard and difficult to even run through my mind but I’m sorry to anyone that I offended or who haven’t gotten through your expectations of how I’m supposed to be. And I apologize,” Martin said.
“And I never want to hurt anyone’s feelings or have anyone worry about what my decisions are.” Martin then palmed her face and pretended to wipe her tears and sneeze into a $100 bill.
“Y’all we are in quarantine and we got more things to focus on besides my hair,” she said. “Justice for Breonna Taylor.”
Marsai Martin, 15, stars on Black-ish, Mixed- Ish, and DreamWorks Dragons: Rescue Riders. She has also appeared in films such as Nina, Fun Mom Dinner, and Little.
Taylor was a 26-year-old African American emergency room technician who Louisville police officers murdered on March 13 while executing a search warrant, used a battering ram to enter her apartment, as the New York Times reports.
Law enforcement fired several shots into Taylor’s home, striking the health care worker at least eight times.
