Brian J. White, a rising actor known for roles in “Stomp the Yard,” and Tyler’s Perry’s “I Can Do Bad All By Myself” married in an intimate ceremony over the weekend. Some vocal fans expressed their disappoint via Twitter after it became apparent White’s new wife wasn’t a Black woman.
According to popular gossip blog Sandra Rose, the actor received a series of angry tweets from fans alleging White is another example of a self-hating Black man. White married Paula Da Silva, a Latina woman.
In response to the negative reactions via Twitter, White retweeted some fans’ tweets who were supportive of White’s decision of marry who he wanted.
White was certain to tweet his disclaimer several times during the day, “NOTE: My RT’s of ur tweets do NOT = my opinion.” But some people are questioning the validity of White’s disclaimer, stating that if the RTs were not his opinion, why would he RT them in the first place.
White retweeted the following posts. One RT even suggested White’s angry fans will no longer have a problem once he and his Latina wife have “beautiful, flawless babies.”
