A woman who recently tried to prove reverse racism exists ran into the proverbial stonewall known as Twitter.
A user of the social media site named Clair wanted to let the Internet know how much she’s oppressed by taking a picture of the baby doll department at her local Target.
She thought she could get away with rearranging the shelves so it would look like only black dolls were available for sale. Problem is, Twitter isn’t as dumb as say, she is.
“I couldn’t find a doll for my little cousins Birthday, BUT I did find dolls named Abrianna, Anaya, Maeva & Keisha. Thanks,” she captioned under the doctored photo.
Twitter did their own investigation of her photo and the results both exposed her as phony and even helped prove the point that not enough dolls of color are produced.

Maybe next time choose a regional, less accessible store to rearrange stock to prove a fake point. pic.twitter.com/oEwHmgH3IN— ✨Hollie✨ (@holliesplaining) August 15, 2017
Seriously, they don't put dolls on their side on the bottom shelf. She took every black doll she could find & it didn't even fill 1 shelf.— TJ Anderson (@TJSonOfAnder) August 14, 2017
the two price labels say "chair" and "scooter"... she put the doll there herself pic.twitter.com/G4SzNBM2xG— afiq (@aahfeekiee) August 15, 2017
Ya, like how fragile do you have to be to see a half a dozen black dolls at target & feel the need to make shit up to defend your privilege— TJ Anderson (@TJSonOfAnder) August 15, 2017
Welp, there's a valuable lesson to learn in all of this: when you're trying to expose phony racism, spend more than five seconds plotting on how you're going to do it.
...Oh yeah, and she also tried to kind of apologize for her initial tweet and before deleting her Twitter account, wrote, "Dear Twitter, I apologize for my insensitivity on issues. I'm 19 & it's not too late to change, with your help. Pray for me. #GiveMeAChance."
Continuing her streak of brilliant decisions, she made the tweet into a poll asking whether she could actually change with 90 percent voting "no." Ouch.
