Oh yes. The Internet definitely had time for THIS one! She thought she was about to show “reverse racism” but only showed stupidity.
According to Twitter, a user named Clair tried to play a fake victim card after visiting a local Target department store.
Clair’s tweet read as follows.
“I couldn’t find a doll for my little cousins Birthday, BUT I did find dolls named Abrianna, Anaya, Maeva & Keisha. Thanks.”
Her message was accompanied by this photo.
When will these people learn that someone is always watching.
So, of course, the tweet drew a different type of attention than she was expecting.
Maybe next time choose a regional, less accessible store to rearrange stock to prove a fake point. pic.twitter.com/oEwHmgH3IN

Too, people began to really breakdown her lie.
Seriously, they don't put dolls on their side on the bottom shelf. She took every black doll she could find & it didn't even fill 1 shelf.

As mentioned in the following tweet, toy representation matters. Clair made it abundantly clear that the fake situation is noticeable and affects a person’s ability to get what she need — just like white privilege and representation.
Ya, like how fragile do you have to be to see a half a dozen black dolls at target & feel the need to make shit up to defend your privilege

Interestingly enough, someone else also zoomed in on the photo and sealed the deal. Turns out that the dolls weren’t even on the right shelves.
the two price labels say "chair" and "scooter"… she put the doll there herself pic.twitter.com/G4SzNBM2xG

Enough was enough…
After enduring a smorgasbord of embarrassment, Clair offered up an apology, according to Bossip.
One of her last tweets read as follows.
“Dear Twitter, I apologize for my insensitivity on issues. I’m 19 & it’s not too late to change, with your help. Pray for me. #GiveMeAChance.”
However, she made the tweet into a “poll.” According to the source, 27,000 people voted and 90 percent said, “HELL NO BIH.”
Clair has since deleted the entire Twitter account.
Isn’t amazing what folks will go through to play the victim in a victimless situation? Let us know your thoughts.
