A 19-year-old girl has deleted her Twitter account after she tweeted a photo in blackface stating she’s now “apart” of “Black Twitter”and users started posting personal information about Sara’s place of work, as well as her real name.
After Clutch Mag, as well as a number of blogs, made posts about her actions, Sara emailed Clutch Mag attempting to clear her name and have her picture removed because, well, just read her email below:
"The photo you are using for your post is illegal under Section 512 of the Digital Millenium Copyright Act, considering it is an unsolicited photo of myself posted without my consent or even my parents consent considering I am a minor. I would like it removed immediately, before I have to get my attorney involved. I am issuing a takedown notice under the Digital Millenium Copyright Act. I would also like to present that I did not understand the cultural significance of “blackface” and I had innocent intentions. I don’t think it is worth ruining my chances of going to college someday.
Apparently Sara considers being 19-years-old a minor, the age that was already discovered by “black Twitter”. What’s funny, is that NOW she’s worried about her photos resurfacing online, when it didn’t bother her to post other photos like this on Twitter.
Sara was offered a chance to respond to the backlash she received but she doesn’t get it, obviously:
"I don’t know why I would apologize for a picture I posted of myself and a friend in a face mask. It is not my fault, but much to my dismay, that people fake RT’d it saying racist things, as well as used tweetgenerator to make me look racist."
