Former ‘90210’ star Tori Spelling was forced to publicly apologize after posting a message many onlookers found extremely racist on Instagram. As The New York Post reports:
In the now-deleted photo posted to Spelling’s Instagram stories, the “Beverly Hills 90210” alum’s daughter, Hattie, 8, could be seen dressed up as a character dubbed “McQuisha,” donning Cheetos as fingernails and wearing a bandana on her head.
Spelling accompanied the post with the caption: “Days kept inside we have to get creative…Hattie has become McQuisha in her Cheeto extension nails.”
Following the post, Twitter users were quick to take Spelling to task.
“Racism takes no days off even during a pandemic,” one user wrote. “why did you think this was ok?!?! Let me guess ‘ignorance’ and ‘you’re so so sorry.’”
