*When millions of folks watched the Vice presidential debate between Kamala Harris and Mike Pence earlier this week, we bet 99.9 percent didn’t give a crap that Kamala Harris was wearing a lacefront wig, but actor LaKeith Stanfield did.
He made sure to let the world know where his mind was as he voiced his thoughts over on his Instagram page with a post that included a split-screen pic of Harris and VP Pence.
“I don’t like her hair, but other than that this is better than the last one but still sad,” read Stanfield’s caption on the image.
Someone responded and said: “You have a powerful voice, use it wisely.”
Well, you know Standfield couldn’t let that go unanswered, so he came back with this:
“I say what i want on my page,” he wrote. “Where are all you warriors of power when i post about the things that i believe in and support? You won’t pressure me into speaking how YOU think i should speak.”
The Shade Room shared screenshots of the exchange, and soon, Lakeith Stanfield was inundated with Instagram users who accused him of hating black women.

After Stanfield’s controversial comments went viral, more disapproval of his comments came swiftly.
“What her hair have to do with her debate?” wrote an Instagram user.
“She’s killing this debate and he wants to talk about her hair?” said a commentator.
“Out of all the comments he makes it’s about her appearance?? Get your priorities straight Sir!!” another added.
Oh yeah, Stanfield also posted and then deleted a throwback video where he expressed love for Black women.
