American comedian and actress Amanda Seales is exiting beloved FOX daytime talk show ‘The Real,’ over claims of censorship.
This comes after just six months after joining the talk show as permanent co-host alongside Loni Love, Jeannie Mai, Tamera Mowry and Adrienne Bailon.
In an Instagram Live video this week, Amanda opened up while chatting with Hamilton star Brandon Victor Dixon saying “My contract is up at the real and I did not renew it because it doesn’t feel good to my soul to be at a place where I cannot speak to my people the way they need to be spoken to and where the people who are speaking to me in disparaging ways are not being handled,” she said. ‘I’m not in a space where i can, as a full black woman, where I have my voice and my co-workers also have their voices and where the people at the top are not respecting the necessity for black voices to be at the top too.’ Seales continued, ‘So, you reach a point, even when it just comes to Hollywood, in general, you’ve seen me transform into a way that I just can’t function in this place the same way.” Seales later clarified in a follow-up post that her decision to leave the show did not stem from her relationship with her co-hosts. “Y’all so f–ing corny,” she said. “There is a whole pandemic and an uprising going on, and you still can’t find s– else to do but try and create some kind of conflict that doesn’t exist? … What I gotta do with my business ain’t got nothing to do with them sisters.” #thereal#black#amandaseales#jeannniemai#entertainmentnews#celebritynews#blackandproud#discrimination#racism#news#woman#blackwoman#Hollywood#thereal
