I’ve been seeing it at the store, at the mall… When did we lose our pride in representing ourselves? When did we slip away of let me make sure I’m presentable when I leave my home?The actress/comedian wanted viewers to know that her statements were not coming from a place of ‘judgment’ however it comes from a place of love.‘I’m not saying you don’t have pride but the representation that you’re showing someone will have to ask you to know if you have it.
