Most people enjoy a good conspiracy theory, but Keke Palmer recently slammed one that was centered around the cancellation of Strahan, Sara and Keke.
The show was only on-air for four months before ABC pulled the plug, and replaced it with a news program about the global coronavirus pandemic.
Many fans began wondering if there was a connection between the show’s cancellation and the actresses recent protests.
Keke went viral after urging a National Guard to march with the people. But she quickly shut down those rumors. “I want to speak on this simply because I hate the narrative that if you speak your mind as a Black person that you will in some way be punished,” Palmer wrote in the caption. “I have seen this going around and at first I ignored, but in this climate I realized this is a dangerous message to send to our generation and the generation coming up. If anything, my speaking out showed the corporations I work with how important my voice is and anyone that has a POV.”
Palmer then claimed “the reality is” she “never signed to SSK as one would a seasonal show.”
“This business is dynamic and instead of thinking of me as a ‘series regular,’ see me… as a brand that works with the corporation Disney/ABC News and this particular show I was on is no longer,” she continued. “That does not mean the relationship I have with them dies, that means it evolves.”
Keke Palmer assured that it’s all business. “But when I see such fear mongering comments I want to speak out so that no one ever feels or thinks that speaking out will cost them their job!” she added. “I’m sure it can and has before, but let’s also recognize when it has not. That way more of us with our own minds speak out against any injustices we see. Trust me, walking in my truth has always made my blessings OVERFLOW and connect to those that are like minded and not with those that are not. Do not believe this lie. Stay courageous and stay true because GOD HAS YOU ALWAYS.”
Strahan doubled down on her statements in the comments, “We know how the business works, and I appreciate everyone supporting us but sometimes things change and you pivot,” he wrote. “Thanks for clarifying my sister.”
