Following last night’s long awaited series premier of Insecure some folks weren’t too happy of the fictional character Tiffany Dubois portrayed by Amanda Seales sporting the AKA sorority colors of pink and green!
Wait, what’s going on with Amanda Seales?
Someone please explain.

Within the episode Amanda’s character Tiffany pulled up with her crew of ladies to their alma mater of Stanford University, for a reunion.
Tiffany was seen outfitted in a nearly $3,000 pink and green Gucci fit and later in a cardigan with a clear A, for Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. present.
Amanda’s character Tiffany also is seen with the season five premier asking Molly, a fellow AKA, if she was going to participate in a sorority activity.
A social media users went viral for a tweet that read, “Okay so hold up. This girl is not a Soror and has my SHIELD on her body?! @IssaRae @Insecurehbo please do not do that again. That’s wildly disrespectful!”
Issa responded in a now deleted tweet that read, “Oh sh*t let me tell @HBO to delete the one of the upcoming episodes then, hold on.
Amanda also took to social media in a clip to state, “I don’t know why people keep asking me if I’m a soror.”

She continued, “I am not a soror. Tiffany is a soror. Tiffany is a character on a TV show. I didn’t write the character. I play the character. I’m an actress, and I’m playing a character on a TV show“
If Amanda Seales wears an AKA shield on a $200 pre-date to Starbucks, do we normalize making your man’s plate or is Twitter Do Your Thing a toxic trait to writing a thinkpiece on HBCUs vs. PWIs, when really Blackfishing is costing us a stack a month?

This @amandaseales / AKA thing is a non-controversy. If someone wears Greek letters but didn't pledge, that's a problem that should be handled in the way such matters are handled. But if an ACTOR is positively portraying a member of an org, which approves it, that's different.
