Roommates, Summer Walker has a complicated and well-documented history with social media, as she has left various platforms multiple times since her breakout success last year. Well, apparently she’s decided to take another break following the intense backlash after a coronavirus video she posted was deemed racist by several of her followers.
Last year may have garnered Summer Walker her biggest commercial success as an artist, but it was also filled with endless personal struggles that have carried over into 2020. As the world is currently dealing with the deadly coronavirus outbreak, many are panicking and hastily placing blame where they can find it.
Many of Summer’s fans feel that she is doing the exact same thing. She recently posted a video to Instagram that allegedly shows Chinese residents intentionally spreading the coronavirus—or so she thought. When her followers informed her that the video she posted was old and before the outbreak, Summer still didn’t back down, writing “That’s some trifling nasty a** s**t.”
She didn’t stop there and added this:
“Lol people so dumb, talking about I’m racist and that video was from a long time ago. It don’t matter if it was from 20 years ago, bottom line that s**t nasty & IDGAF if a black white yellow or green person did that s**t, it’s still nasty. Lmao I literally don’t give a f**k anymore this is app. It’s not that serious. For my label Ima just delete all this s**t.”
Summer kept to her word and deleted her entire Instagram following the backlash.
