Keke Palmer is setting the record straight. The actress took to Instagram on Saturday to address rumors that her Good Morning America talk show, Strahan, Sara & Keke, was canceled because she spoke up about racial inequality amid the Black Lives Matter movement.

In an Instagram post on Saturday, July 18, the actor and singer shared a meme that had been circulating on social media: “Ain’t it weird how Keke Palmer was seen protesting and preaching to the police about racism in our country, then ABC decides to cancel her show.”

“I want to speak on this simply because I hate the narrative that if you speak your mind as a black person that you will in some way be punished. I have seen this going around and at first, I ignored but in this climate, I realized this is a dangerous message to send to our generation and the generation coming up,” Palmer wrote. “If anything my speaking out showed the corporations I work with how important my voice is and anyone that has a POV.” the post says

“The reality is I was never signed to SSK as one would a seasonal show. This business is dynamic and instead of thinking of me as a ‘series regular’ see me see me as a brand that works with the corporation Disney/ABC News and this particular show I was on is no longer,” she continued. “That does not mean the relationship I have with them dies, that means it evolves.”

Keke admitted that she doesn’t like speaking about business, but felt it was her responsibility to address “fear-mongering” falsities. “I want to speak out so that no one ever feels or thinks that speaking out will cost them their job,” she said.

“I’m sure it can and has before, but let’s also recognize when it has not. That way more of us with our own minds speak out against any injustices we see. Trust me, walking in my truth has always made my blessings OVERFLOW and connect to those that are like-minded and not with those that are not.”

That does not mean the relationship I have with them dies, that means it evolves. I hate talking about business because it can seem a bit weird and gets quite technical lol. But when I see such fear mongering comments I want to speak out so that no one ever feels or thinks that speaking out will cost them their job! I’m sure it can and has before, but let’s also recognize when it has not. That way more of us with our own minds speak out against any injustices we see. Trust me, walking in my truth has always made my blessings OVERFLOW and connect to those that are like minded and not with those that are not. Do not believe this lie. Stay courageous and stay true because GOD HAS YOU ALWAYS ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Strahan, Sara & Keke — starring Michael Strahan, Sara Haines and Palmer — was taken off of ABC’s schedule in March, with a daily coronavirus report airing in its place. Earlier this month, reports surfaced that ABC had decided to cancel Strahan, Sara & Keke, and replace it with GMA 3: What You Need to Know. Strahan still hosts GMA.
