Tori Spelling has apologized after she posted a pic of her daughter Hattie on Instagram, wearing a teal bandana and Cheetos nails and calling her "McQuisha." She said in the caption, "Days kept inside we have to get creative… Hattie has become McQuisha in her cheeto extension nails.”
One Twitter user wrote, “Of all the things y’all could do for entertainment this was the only option? Y’all too poor for princess costumes over there? Y’all don’t have crayons? Netflix? @torispelling." Another wrote, “Racism takes no days off even during a pandemic @torispelling why did you think this was ok ?!?!?! Let me guess ‘ignorance and you’re so so sorry'”
One person tweeted,“You’re a racist who tried to be comedic in THIS time ESPECIALLY! How Ironic is it that you associated a bandana, long nails and an urban to be a dress up game with you daughter children are TAUGHT to be RACIST AND INSENSITIVE TO CULTURAL MISAPPROPRIATION!!!! #??????
Tori later removed the post and apologized. She wrote, “I should have thought about how it could have been perceived and misconstrued before I posted. I did not. I’m truly sorry. I posted a story the other day that upset many of you. I’m truly sorry. That was NOT the intention at ALL. Hattie is 8. We watch and adore old reruns of ‘Martin.'"
Tori explained that they love Martin's character "Sheneneh." She continued, “She made up that name with “Mc” bc her last name is McDermott. She was reenacting the over the top fun and amazing character from ‘Martin.’ She is innocent and I didn’t mean anything by it. I should have thought about how it could have been perceived and misconstrued before I posted. I did not. I’m truly sorry.”
