In the House star Maia Campbell is still the topic of conversation today after a video recently surfaced of a man recording her and begging her to pump his gas while she was obviously not in her usual state of mind.
The man behind the camera has been dragged all over social media for exploiting the actress and is now addressing the critics — and he makes one thing clear: he would not change a thing.
Posting a follow-up video explaining — or rather defending — why he recorded the troubled actress against her will, he said that it all boils down to race.
"Y'all n****s would not be mad if I posted a white girl," he said. "If I woulda have ran into motherf**kin' Hilary Duff Lizzy McGuire and she was asking for crack and was sucking d**k at a gas station for money... for crack, I would have posted her too!"
He then went on to explain that Campbell has been "on the block for years," alluding that her actions were nothing new.
"Just because she was a Black actress from back in the day, who we already all know from Redan," he said. "She been on the block for years... We been knew this b***h. She been doing dumb s**t... been doing stupid s**t... Went in the industry got geeked up, f**ked all in the streets, n****s sent her back to Atlanta and she got geeked up some more. This ain't no mental disorder. This b***h is just high as f**k."

Here is the original video that many say should not have been posted out of respect for Campbell:
Since the clip went viral, Campbell's former In the House co-star LL Cool J reached out to help, but she refused his offer.
