Twitter users are responding to “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” star Alfonso Ribeiro who recently revealed that he felt shunned by the Black Community due to his interracial marriage.
Last week in an interview with Atlanta Black Star, Ribeiro said he suspects it’s because of his choice of partner.
But Twitter users politely reminded him of why he may not feel very accepted by the Black community and let him know his wife had little to do with it.

As quite a few of us have commented, it's not that we don't "accept" Alfonso Ribeiro because he has a white wife. So does Jordan Peele and we arguably support him more than any other modern Black filmmaker.
If you "distance" yourself from us, we simply pay you little-to-no mind

Two things I never heard in my life, one, a black person ever mention Alfonso Ribeiro wife, two, Alfonso Ribeiro ever mention anything pertaining to black America. Black people are the welcoming people in this country, he has a guilty conscious or just paranoid about nothing. https://t.co/AuqjQGe4lM

I didn't know (or care) that Alfonso Ribeiro had a whife, but I'm not surprised. He gives very white wife energy.
