Davis posted a second video showing her as Annaleise Keating, her character in How To Get Away With Murder, dancing to the hit song. She wrote in the caption, #HowToGetAwayWithWAP.”

Jenner was replaced with Davis by social media fans after people petitioned for the reality TV star and beauty mogul to be removed from the video.
