People are calling out a white woman for racism after she attempted to parody “how Black girls dance” in a TikTok video. 

The woman, Amy Sanders, uploaded the video to her TikTok account, @amy.lynn.sanders. In the video, which has since been removed from her account, Sanders dances mockingly to Megan Thee Stallion’s “Body.” The video is overlaid with the caption, “This is how Black girls dance!” 

On Monday, the video was reposted by user @notcapnamerica to Twitter, where users blasted Sanders for racism and her lack of rhythm. “What ‘black girls’ is Kayleigh Ann watching because I damn sure never seen one look like this,” @notcapnamerica wrote.

Though the video is no longer on Sanders’ account, Sanders uploaded multiple others addressing the backlash.

Instead of apologizing, Sanders doubles down. In one video, she includes a screenshot featuring comments a TikTok user seemingly made in defense of her. The user, who goes by @Kaylatheslowsnail_ and says she is “a Black woman,” writes that though the video was offensive, “Black ppl (sic) did this to the whites.”

In another video, Sanders posted a death threat she received and asked viewers if it’s OK for people to be sending her death threats over the video. The comments sections have been turned off on the videos of Sanders addressing the backlash.

While Sanders turned off comments on the videos, people still found ways to share their thoughts on the initial video and Sanders’ response to the backlash, with many claiming that she is victimizing herself. “You can’t sit here and cast a stone that you threw in the first place,” one user commented.

The latest video on Sanders’ account was uploaded on Tuesday. It features screenshots of critical DMs she is receiving.
