Woody McClain's Response To His Controversial Tweets

"Once you go black , you never go back," is a famous phrase used from movies to memes. However, Woody McClain, an African American, defined a phrase of his own when he said, "If it ain't white it ain't right."

That doesn't sound right, no?

Neither did it for millions out there when Woody's tweet from back in the day surfaced to the media. His tweets resembled a sense of racism, as felt by many, and he was instantly hit with major backlash from his followers and fans. 

Exposing Past Tweets

In 2017 several past tweets of the actor surfaced on the internet that has since been deleted.

After discovering an unsettling past tweet, fans began digging more in his tweets, and they found a series of tweets that felt disrespectful for a community. 

Some of which included, 

“When I’m famous I’m dating white women only.”

“Really thinkin about finding a white girl. black girls are soooo overrated these days…wish [sic] man once said- if it aint whit [sic] it aint right lol”

These tweets hurt the sentiments of many, and instantly the actor was hit with a ton of backlash.

Picture Of A Potential Girlfriend? 

Shortly after McClain's tweets were exposed, Woody's first course of defense was to post a picture of him with a black woman (the tweet now has been deleted) and claim that he was in a relationship with her for ten years. 

But this revelation did not do much to help him defend himself. Eventually, during an event, the Essence magazine asked him about his recent controversy. 

Woody's Rection To The Controversy

Addressing the matter, he revealed how he is a comedian, and the tweet 'If it ain't white it ain't right' was a reference to the famous comedy line, 'Once you go Black, you never go back.'

He further said, 

"My mother is Black. My sister is Black. I love my Black queens. I push for positivity every time I do my comedy videos. I’m doing it to put us in a positive light. So I’m not even mad that this happened. I’m actually happy. So I want my little African-American brothers, listen Y’all gotta understand this is not a joke. It’s not sensitive, it’s not funny no more.”

People in the comment section seem to have forgiven Woody now and shared their share of good wishes and forgiveness for the actor.
