Recently, the television personality tearfully spoke on the tragic incident, and oddly received some backlash from a few trolls, one of who dubbed her a "coon" for not speaking on the "real issues" — whatever those may be. Failing to let the sly comment fly, the actress responded, scolding the commenter for her approach.
In a recent interview with CBS This Morning, an emotional Mowry shared a few words on her niece's passing, beside her husband and Alaina's father.
"Alaina was beautiful," she said. "She was my friend... Yes, there needs to be a change, but all the noise, nothing's been done... You start by imagining, 'What if that was my child, or my niece, or my cousin? It'll get you in a place of just having some sort of human decency."
Take a look at the clip, below:
While many may naturally empathize with the actress, a particular troll took to the comments section below a post by The Shade Room, where the video was reposted, to urge that she "stop cooning and speak on the real issues."
Clearly uneasy by the comment, Mowry-Housley responded, stressing to the commenter that she is "a part of the problem."
She ended her direct clapback with a warning: "Don't you ever judge the death of my niece."
