*Dr. Kizzmekia Corbett, viral immunologist and research fellow at the Vaccine Research Center at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, National Institutes of Health — and the Black woman who has been credited for developing the COVID vaccine — is now being cancelled on social media after old, racially-insensitive tweets resurface.

Backlash on Corbett’s resurfaced tweets directly follow Dr. Anthony Fauci‘s insisting that Black people take the COVID-19 vaccine because a Black woman helped in its creation. The tweets that Twitter dug up show Corbett’s since-deleted account (BeautifullyBlaq) posting some interesting messages.

Some include her saying, “I hope my kids have white friends, no offense but most of u n***as a n***a b****es have the worst friendship circle.” In another tweet, she said, “I will prolly end up marrying a white boy with a soulful voice. –> *questions making new plans in 2012* LOL!.” She also wrote, “I like my white boys to look like they can surf and got the daddy stroke.. rare find, but when u do… … … HUNNIE.” Corbett has yet to address the backlash, but #socialites, thoughts?

  1. Remind me to never hide nothing from Black Twitter. They need to do background investigations for the feds. Maybe our government wouldn’t be in the mess it’s in now if they had run everybody through the Black Twitter gauntlet investigation first.
