Skai Jackson has posted multiple tributes to Cameron Boyce since he died.
Last month (Jul 6), Cameron Boyce died from an epileptic seizure. The beloved Disney actor was just 20 years old. Following his death, Cameron's friends and family took to social media to pay tribute to him. Dove Cameron, China Anne McClain and Debby Ryan all shared moving posts about the rising star. Skai Jackson, who acted with Cameron in Jessie, also took time to write about him. Since then, Skai has shared multiple posts in honour of Cameron and their friendship.
Recently a troll asked Skai to stop posting about Cameron so much and she swiftly dragged them.
Last week (Aug 2), Skai shared an adorable throwback photo of her with Cameron on Instagram and the caption: "#tbt never forget... love you forever #TheCameronBoyceFoundation". The Cameron Boyce Foundation is a new charitable organisation which Cameron's family set up after his death to provide young people with "artistic and creative outlets as alternatives to violence and negativity".
The response to the tribute was overwhelmingly positive. However, one person commented: "Just let him Rest In Peace you post him every day like chill".
Never one to let mean remarks slide though, Skai clapped back writing: "I've known Cameron for half of my live. He was a brother to me/all of us... I can do as I please just like you take pics with your mouth open... not flattering girl".

Skai then went on to her page and commented on her photos, “Close your mouth”. pic.twitter.com/OHoVagmGKJ
And I oop. It's true that Skai does post about Cameron often but everyone processes grief differently and it's wrong to police Skai for honouring her friend.
