Comedian and former talk show host, Amanda Seals takes to Instagram to blast daytime talk show, The Real.
She claims the show stole the concept of her ‘Smart Funny & Black’ brand. She writes via Instagram, “Once again therealdaytime demonstrates its low class and even lower vibration. Just so we’re clear, this is an EGREGIOUS bite of my “Smart Funny & Black” brand in an attempt to bring black awareness into the programming of The Real. They couldn’t find ANY OTHER WAY to do this without it being a bite of my creation..”
She continues, “Yes, I’m saying this on social media because the CONTINUED thievery of black people’s work (even when supported by other BIPOC) needs to be called the F out and also because this is the most energy I’ll give it before going on with my day and creating more dopeness that will inevitably be pilfered by the less talented/ethical/ancestrally connected individuals of our species. Happy Monday. VOTE!”
Take a look at the similarities below.
Seales left The Real back in June because “it didn’t ‘feel good to [her] soul’.”
