June 30, 2020

Black-ish star Marsai Martin put her acting skills to good use as she responded to trolls who had criticised her appearance at the BET Awards.

The actress, 15, received cruel comments on social media after she presented the best female hip hop artist award to Megan Thee Stallion during the virtual BET ceremony, with trolls specifically criticising her hair and teeth.

Martin then shared a video on Instagram in which she appeared to shed tears over the comments and apologise to anyone that she had “offended” - before blowing her nose on a $100 bill.
