The past has come back to haunt Barbie Ferreira as her Tumblr account has recently spiked a controversy stating that she is racist.
Barbie Ferreira, a prominent American actress and model, rose to prominence for her brilliant portrayal of Kat Hernandez in the much-acclaimed HBO hit series, Euphoria.
Unfortunately, she was all over the headlines after being dropped off from Euphoria’s third season. And her recent spiked racial controversy has proved to be like a pinch of salt on a wound.
Let’s explore more to it.
Ferreira’s past Tumblr spikes her racial controversy.
Barbie Ferreira received criticism on Tumblr for her alleged racism.
Before ever achieving the Hollywood fame she now enjoys, Ferreira had a respectable Tumblr following.
According to reports, the narrative began in 2016. As a result, those who knew her or heard about her alleged actions from that time, which was around 2016 or 2017, according to people’s claims, are the ones who are now accusing her of being racist.
She allegedly used to make “weird” videos of herself smoking marijuana and frequently used the n-word in her Tumblr posts. She allegedly carried out these actions under the name boredbarbara.
According to screenshots of the aforementioned posts, Ferreira used those epithets in quotes.
There are even allegations that she has used the r-word, but those do not seem to be as prevalent as allegations of her racism. When Barbie casually used that word, her supporters labeled her as racist. But Barbie refuted every one of those claims.
Ferreira mentioned her past use of the B-word, which stands for Black, in the midst of this. Her comments on this controversy have been the subject of numerous user tweets.
Likewise, other claims have also surfaced. For example, several users claimed that she pretended to be black, with several stating that she used to label her as half-black.
However, despite multiple racial claims along the way, no authentic proof has arisen in the matter.
And with as much hatred directed toward her since her departure from Euphoria. It is not surprising to witness such harsh backlashes. Furthermore, hatred could be seen clearly, as many openly celebrated the news of her departure from the show.
