Skai Jackson's former dance schoolmate accuses her of bullying and racism
"She bullied me all the time to the point where I cried every single day, I hated going to dance. She made my life hell."
Skai Jackson has denied bullying a TikToker who accused her of making her "cry every single day" when they went to the same dance school.
On Wednesday, TikTok user @s01v319 posted a video where she answered why she was "always hating on Black women for no reason". She responded that her problem stems from being bullied by the Dancing With The Stars contestant while at the same dance school in Harlem.
"Skai Jackson and I used to dance together at this place called Dance Institute of Harlem. When we were both there, she bullied me all the time to the point where I cried every single day, I hated going to dance. She made my life hell," she said.
She also accused Skai of being racist towards her. She continued: "Not to mention I am also half Asian. She pulled her eyes up at me. She would drive all my friends away from me, make me feel so alone so isolated. She had this entire anti-bullying campaign once and I was like are you not going to talk about the fact that you are literally a bully. So ya I have had a hate for her for a very long time and it has nothing to do with race or anything."
In 2017, Skai partnered with DoSomething.org on an anti-bullying campaign, recording a PSA which highlighted the better ways she would treat her friends.
Skai then shut down the allegations against her in the comment section, writing: "We may have went to the same dance school but I barely even spoke to you Chile. Stop trying to gain attention 10 years later. Get a life girl." The TikToker responded: "Hi I would love to have a proper discussion with you over this. I am sorry this blew up how it did."
Skai then clapped back further on Instagram. She said: "Don’t make false claims!!! I don’t even know this girl. Why say something 10 years later? Another attention seeker."
