Keke Palmer Defends Her Relationship with ABC After They Canceled Her Show

Keke Palmer is sticking up for herself.

The 26-year-old actress took to Instagram to address speculation that ABC canceled her talk show Strahan, Sara and Keke because she spoke up against racism at a Black Lives Matter protest.

“I want to speak on this simply because I hate the narrative that if you speak your mind as a black person that you will in some way be punished,” Keke wrote. “I have seen this going around and at first I ignored but in this climate I realized this is a dangerous message to send to our generation and the generation coming up. If anything my speaking out showed the corporations I work with how important my voice is and anyone that has a POV. The reality is I was never signed to ‘SSK’ as one would a seasonal show. This business is dynamic and instead of thinking of me as a ‘series regular’ see me see me as a brand that works with the corporation Disney/ABC News and this particular show I was on is no longer.”

Keke shared a meme with the message “Aint it weird how Keke Palmer was seen protesting and preaching about Racism in our country then ABC decides to cancel her show.”

“That does not mean the relationship I have with them dies, that means it evolves,” Keke continued. “I hate talking about business because it can seem a bit weird and gets quite technical lol. But when I see such fear mongering comments I want to speak out so that no one ever feels or thinks that speaking out will cost them their job! I’m sure it can and has before, but let’s also recognize when it has not. That way more of us with our own minds speak out against any injustices we see. Trust me, walking in my truth has always made my blessings OVERFLOW and connect to those that are like minded and not with those that are not. Do not believe this lie. Stay courageous and stay true because GOD HAS YOU ALWAYS ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️”

Keke recently called out this public figure for “inciting a race war.”
