Sorority Members Upset Over Amanda Seales Portraying an AKA on Insecure, Issa Rae and Amanda Seales Respond

Whew, chile! The final season of Insecure premiered last night, and it already has sparked some controversy on the internet.

Specifically, some members of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. are not happy with Amanda Seales’ character Tiffany dawning pink and green and representing the sorority in the show without Seales being a member of in real life.

While many members were seemingly upset, other Twitter users came to Seales’ defense to remind them that it’s just a show. And, of course, Amanda Seales shadily responded to remind people that she was just there to do her job: “I didn’t write the character–I play the character! I’m not a soror–I’m an actress!”

See some reactions below.


The show’s creator Issa Rae caught wind of the controversy and joked that she’ll ask HBO to delete an upcoming episode after a fan asked her not to allow Seales’ character to wear AKA regalia again.
