‘Stay away from fake allies’: Black woman says her friend’s boyfriend kicked her out of party because she is ‘too dark’

‘She was never your friend.’

A Black TikToker says that her former friend’s boyfriend kicked her out of his party because she is “too dark.”

Shakira Dianessy (@abarbielife2.0) posted a TikTok recounting the story on May 24. In the video, she says a white female friend invited her to a party the woman’s boyfriend was throwing. Dianessy says that when she arrived at the party, the boyfriend’s friends openly made fun of her, and she was told that she wasn’t allowed to drink alcohol at the party.

The TikToker says when she tried to grab a drink again, the boyfriend said, “Oh, nah, you gotta go, you gotta go.” She says he also told her that she was “just Black as fuck” and that he was “not really tryin’ to have those type of girls at [his] party.” Dianessy says she confronted her friend about what the boyfriend said, but the friend wasn’t any help—so the TikToker left the party.

“Moral of the story is stay away from fake allies,” Dianessy says in her TikTok. On Wednesday, her video had almost 2 million views.
