Vanessa Morgan Vows To Not Take Any More Roles That Don't Properly Represent Black People

Vanessa Morgan is continuing to speak out about being black in Hollywood.

In a series of tweets on Tuesday (June 2) and Wednesday (June 3), the Riverdale actress made vows to only take on certain roles, and only wear black designers on red carpets.

“My role on Riverdale has nothing to do with my fellow castmates/friends. They don’t write the show. So no need to attack them, they don’t call the shots & I know they have my back. ❤️,” Vanessa wrote on Tuesday.

“finally feel like I can speak up for myself and my fellow brothers and sisters & be heard. Usually everyone is fake listening. I really hope a change is comin,” she added in reply to someone.

“To my black fans, I have now made it my purpose to fight for us. To the six year old me who had no role model that looked like me on TV. This is for you. We aren’t your token black non dimensional characters. This is being black in Hollywood. I will fight for YOU,” Vanessa said on Wednesday morning, adding, “And I will no longer take roles that don’t properly represent us. PERIOD.”

Vanessa also shared that she will only wear black designers to events and red carpets, and opened the door for aspiring designers.

“From now on any red carpet or event I will be wearing and supporting Black designers. Any aspiring Black designers hit me up. I got you. I see you,” she tweeted.

These tweets come during the Black Lives Matter movement happening now, and after Vanessa clapped back at someone for calling her former co-star Ashleigh Murray a diva.
