Nickelodeon Ned's Declassified star Lindsey Shaw says she is taking a break from social media after facing backlash for mocking Black TikTok creators.
In a now-deleted TikTok video, Shaw shows a clip of a dance trend that was started by Black creators. After the clip plays, the actress says “Are we okay? What the f**k is this?” Shaw then proceeds to mimic the viral dance, E! Online reported.
Many people criticized Shaw and called her a racist for mocking Black creators. However, Shaw said, as a millennial, she was just poking fun at a Gen Z dance trend.
In a video posted on July 11, an emotional Shaw is seen crying while defending her actions, Pop Crave reported.
