In a new tweet that popped up on social media, Keke was compared to Zendaya, 25, the fellow actress, and the discussion was purely based on colorism.
The tweet goes on the right track of colorism, and it’s well highlighted.

The tweet from the unknown then took it as a precise example of the prominent role of colorism in the Hollywood industry.
When such a never expected tweet made sensation on Twitter and then on other social media platforms, Keke broke her silence and came forward to put a big full stop to the talk of colorism.
Keke, 28, said, “till now, I have not gone through such discrimination in Hollywood even when I was a child artist. I am confident in my talents, and I got plenty of opportunities to prove myself”. As a strong reply to the tweet enwrapping colorism, the ‘Nope’ star shot a great tweet in which she well described why such racial comparisons got tied between Zendaya and her itself.
She said that a remarkable example of colorism is simply thinking that she can be easily compared with others in the industry. Keke opened up by sharing her words that she is the youngest talk show host ever and is the first Black woman to host the show. She was undoubtedly the youngest and the first Black Cinderella.
She shut down the claim by highlighting herself as an incomparable talent and never overlooked to point out that ‘this is what the real, uncomparable Keke Palmer is’, said the actress. Her words on the tweet made millions jaw-drop, and the perfectly placed words on the post turned most of the audience into her die-heart fans.
The lady with a highly impressive personality said that she was in Hollywood films since when she was 11 years old. She even cited her top streaming box office film, Nope. She is the one holding hundreds of credits. And she is not thinking that colorism ever shook her by any means, and she is a very happy person with such a blessed career.
