Internet ghosts from Cuban-Puerto Rican singer Sabrina Claudio’s racist past came back to haunt her on Monday night (April 6), conjured up by none other than Black Twitter.
In several screenshots obtained by one of the social site’s users, the “Unravel Me” singer’s bigoted, anti-Black-women tweets circa 2011 were exposed for all of the Twitterverse to witness. Sabrina made statements such as, “it must suck to be a black girl with no booty,” and repeatedly uses the N-word in photo evidence from the old incognito account. Though the tweets are from six to seven years ago, a screenshot pulled from a recent Instagram conversation shows that her past misogynoir is, in fact, not just a “past.”
“I rather be a pasty white girl than a sweaty chonga,” she replied to an Instagram user this year in one of the screenshots.

Claudio's flagrant, anti-Black women tweets from her former account certainly lived up to the username of the Twitter handle: @ohdamnyoureugly
She also learned the hard way that screenshots hold up in the court of public opinion, whether she scrubbed the old account and its tweets clean off the internet or not...
The Miami-native then penned a five-sentence apology following the backlash, admitting that 'some' of the controversy is true
Unfortunately for Sabrina, the internet had already hit the cancel button on her, the apology and her entire music catalog
