Dawn Richard Slams BET For Comparing Her Hair To Ariana Grande's: 'Stop Disrespecting Black Women'
The network has yet to respond.
Dawn Richard had some choice words for BET after the entertainment network claimed the singer copied the look of fellow pop songstress Ariana Grande.
What really makes me sad is that @BET has never supported my music or that I’m a black woman trying to break barriers for women in animation. Or that I’ve worked on advancing tech via VR and augmented reality. But you post about a ponytail i wore weeks ago and have already worn. https://t.co/otJt0J2VW6— DAWN (@DawnRichard) February 27, 2019'

After sounding off against the network, the 35-year-old posted a second tweet encouraging it to "stop disrespecting Black women."
Stop pitting females against each other. And stop disrespecting black women by making them out to be followers when they have led in most all pivotal moments in society. K. Bye.— DAWN (@DawnRichard) February 27, 2019'
