SMDH: The Internet Is Making Karrueche Tran Defend Her Blackness — Again

She's sick and tired of having to prove herself.

Published September 20, 2018

Karrueche Tran has made in known, in the past, that her biracial background includes African-American heritage, but regardless of her words, many seem to continue to claim she isn't "Black enough."

However, this sentiment proved the be the last straw for the actress, most recently, as she wasted no time checking a troll who attempted to invalidate her Blackness.

Tran, born to a Vietnamese mother and African-American father, recently posted a photo to Instagram thanking Planned Parenthood for honoring her with the Champion of Women's Healthcare award at the Congressional Black Caucus luncheon.

While this moment should have garnered a slew of praise and congratulations for the Claws star, not everyone agreed with that approach, with one commenter attempting to take a jab at her, below the post.

In response to the troll who asked, "Wait @karrueche ain't black," she quickly clapped back, writing, "Yes the f**k I am. Half Vietnamese and half black."

Watch the exchange, below:
