Earlier this week, news surfaced that Saved By the Bell alum Lark Voorhies had an Instagram account where she dished on her subscription to the Raven-Symoné school of thought — the actress reportedly said that she does not identify as Black. It has now been confirmed that it was all the work of a hacker.
The post immediately went viral, and this is only the recent instance of her words on social media raising eyebrowns. According to Voorhies' rep, though, it's all the work of a mean-spirited hacker.
A rep for Voorhies gave BET.com this exclusive statement:
"Lark has been through a lot with the ending of her marriage, the Internet identity fraud, backlash from false statements, and her emotional health. She has always tried to stay healthy and continues to work on improving herself. She has always been the type of person who speaks only kindness and positivity."
It continues, "Being in the public eye can be deceiving because people forget they are still dealing with a very human person with very real life situations. I ask for your continued support and understanding for Lark and her journey. We hope the Instagram accounts and the hacked Twitter site (@TheLarkVoorhies) are shut down. She is looking forward to reestablishing her acting career and maintaining a healthy lifestyle."
We're sure an "official" statement will be posted to her fake account, soon, but now you know the truth.
While Lark's words are now confirmed as fake, Raven's statements are all hers. Take a look at our BET Breaks recap of The View co-host's latest controversy, below:
