Skai Jackson seeks justice for LaVena Johnson, slammed for sharing details of 'racist' teen
Disney Star Skai Jackson tweeted the story of slain soldier Missouri's LaVena Johnson who was killed in Iraq in 2005. "Let’s not forget LaVena Johnson. She was found dead in her tent in Iraq in 2005. She had a broken nose, loose teeth, burns from chemicals on her private areas to cover evidence of rape, black eye, and a gunshot wound. The government ruled her death as a 'suicide'. She was only 19," wrote Jackon in her tweet.
However, shortly after she posted this, the comment 'guacamole n**** p****' started to erupt in the comments section under this post. Last month, Jackson had taken on the onus to expose people who displayed racist behavior on social media. Jackson was determined to put a stop to it and in a step towards the direction, she started to share tweets and comments made by individuals along with other information about the said individuals. Her intention was to lessen the proportion of racism that was prevalent on social media, but her action resulted in the Internet turning against her for posting details about a 13-year-old boy named Dylan.
Other comments under her post also included, "Let’s not forget that you doxxed a kid and is tweeting random stuff to make people forget" and "She put out info on many people (which is f***ing illegal), and states an: apology, that they're fine, or addresses the fact she committed a crime multiple times. Should be locked up tbh."
A couple of reports emerged after her tweet stating he'd been dismissed from his school and his parents lost their jobs for their son's racist comments. She was quick to clarify her stance stating that the reports have no truth in them and that people should stop spreading false information around. "Hi, I just want to address this situation. I never knew 'guacamole n**** p****' was something that was said in a meme. Please do not spread false info that his parents lost their job. This screenshot is his best friend and someone else. I do apologize and will take responsibility," she wrote while sharing a screenshot of the alleged conversation.
