Issa Rae hits back at Twitter user who says she’s ‘not an attractive woman’… as fans point out resemblance between the two ladies: ‘We look the same!’
Issa Rae called out an internet troll who criticized her appearance – but not before legions of fans came to her defense.
The Insecure star, 36, started trending on Twitter after a random woman decided she wanted to share some negative thoughts about the actress and producer.
‘Issa Rae is not an attractive woman to me and that is okay. Every Black person ain’t attractive,’ the woman wrote in the initial tweet.
‘Also, she will never know who I am and even if she did it doesn’t matter because I don’t want to f*** her or be hired by her.’
