After ‘Insecure,’ Amanda Seales is doing whatever the hell she wants

Amanda Seales tells me she knows there’s a large group of people who only hear from her when she’s saying something controversial, and based on my unscientific poll of my closest friends ahead of our virtual chat, she’s right. If you ask her why this is, she’ll blame social media algorithms. She’s less likely to trend or show up on aggregate pages such as The Shade Room when she’s saying something innocuous, she says. Instead, she’s more likely to become a headline when she’s sharing a controversial opinion or being brazen about the state of America.

Everything's Gonna Be All White's Amanda Seales Says Docuseries Righteously Challenges White Fragility

In Showtime’s three-part docuseries Everything’s Gonna Be All White, actress and comedian Amanda Seales wastes no time getting to the heart of the show. “I think what annoys me most about white people,” Seales can be heard saying in the trailer, “is when they pretend that they’re the victim. What’s also annoying is when they, you know, when they kill us.” Funny, informative and subversive, Everything’s Gonna Be All White and its BIPOC interview subjects create a history class of sorts that seeks to inform and challenge some viewers while giving voice and affirmation to others.

Insecure's Amanda Seales Addresses AKA Controversy Again After Sorority Threatens Lawsuit

Insecure's AKA controversy has been the biggest situation to rock the HBO series in a while. Twitter users weren't exactly pleased when they watched Amanda Seales, as the bougie Tiffany DuBois, sport the AKA colors and letters. Many fans of the comedy (mostly Black Greeks) criticized not only the show but Seales and series co-creator Issa Rae as well.

With things still somewhat bubbling, the Insecure star decided to address the issue head-on, after legal action was threatened.
