At the recent 20th BET Awards, “Black-ish” actress Marsai Martin had the pleasure of presenting an award. People on Twitter promptly criticized how the teenager looked at the virtual event and she’s since responded.

Over the weekend, Martin, 15, was one of the stars who had the pleasure of presenting an award at this year’s remote BET Award ceremony. She presented the Best Female Hip-Hop Artist award to Megan Thee Stallion.

Instead, trolls on Twitter zoomed in on her looks and mocked the way her hair and teeth looked at the ceremony. In response to the judgment, Martin took to Instagram with a video response.

MARTIN ADDRESSED CRITICISM

She acknowledged the criticism about her wig looking like a “grandma’s” while tugging at the blonde wig. The star also noted how people were judging her “veneers,” as she pulled out her see-through braces.

Marsai Martin whipped out a $100 bill to blow her nose.

All the while, the actress pretended to hold back tears. Mocking her critics, she stated:

“I’m sorry to anyone I’ve offended or haven’t gotten to your expectations about how I’m supposed to be. I apologize.”

MOCKING TROLLS

Martin mockingly confessed that she had not wanted to hurt people’s feelings. Pretending to be overcome by emotions, the star took a moment to fake blow her nose with a $100 bill that was handed to her by someone off-screen.

The actress then noted how absurd it was that people were focusing on such mediocre things when we were under quarantine. All across the nation, people have been socially distancing to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus disease.

FOCUSING ON MORE PRESSING THINGS
