a new show chloe bailey is in, where she is shown having sex, has sparked a debate about racism and colorism in Hollywood… and now, parlor berryIt has been tied up.
You may have noticed that the latter is trends this weekend, and the reason is because of this speech that has taken off since donald gloverThe latest “Swarm” TV series debuted Friday… and opens with a scene showing Chloe performing the feat in graphic detail.
Since then, there’s been a lot of talk about her decision to do the sex scene… some say it’s a great/good move for her, and others feel it aligns with other decisions she’s made lately, like putting out a single with Chris Brown — which some think are… not so wise.
As a Twitter user put it … “Where’s Chloe Bailey’s mentor please? She’s been making terrible decisions lately, she should never have done that sex scene in Swarm and I’m not even getting into her most recent collaboration.” Many other people reacted in a similar way.
Halle Berry isn’t black, she’s biracial, “passing white,” plus she was Hollyweird’s favourite. Megan Good just opened up about how difficult her career has been taking on these types of roles. Chole will learn the hard way that we didn’t make up the rules. https://t.co/KBXegM7vXa

On Saturday, that conversation changed when someone mentioned Halle in comparison. She tweeted, “Halle Berry getting the role back from shots gave her an Oscar, right?” The point she was making… Halle also did risqué things in her day, “Monster’s Ball” being the best example, for which she won an Oscar, but that, in itself, didn’t diminish the work. of her / acknowledgments of her. .
This user was essentially saying that Chloe’s sex scene won’t define her acting career, and that it’s unfair to suggest she’ll be derailed by it. Basically, she stops giving him premature criticism.
However, another Twitter user responded… suggesting that Halle enjoys the benefit of a lighter skin complexion and even went so far as to claim that she is “white”. Obviously, it’s not: Halle looks black, not white… which is literally what passing for white means.
Semantics aside, however, the point of this woman (as explained later in here the page) is that Halle conforms to Hollywood’s traditional white European standard of beauty… more so than Chloe, or any other dark-skinned black woman. Therefore, she believes that Halle has done better in showbiz than Chloe in this specific aspect… that is, finding out everything.
In other words, this user feels that colorism is still alive and well in the entertainment industry…and that darker-skinned black performers will have a harder time compared to any of their lighter-skinned counterparts, which could be valid.
Of course, there’s also the Bailey sisters factor here…namely, the fact that Chloe’s also famous brother, bailey ballroomshe has a more formal reputation than her older sister, perhaps.
Halle (Bailey) literally stars in “The Little Mermaid” with Disney, very family-friendly, etc., and generally avoids controversy on her own. Chloe, on the other hand, is more often under the microscope…and tends to be labeled the wild child of the two.
In any case…hopefully, we can all agree that anyone can do whatever they want, regardless of all the squeaks. We’re sure Chloe isn’t batting an eyelid about any of that.
