AceShowbiz - Justine Skye has apparently reactivated her Twitter account. Breaking her silence, the "Collide" singer took to Twitter to address the "mean girl" allegations, which came after she joined best friend Hailey Baldwin in an alleged shady TikTok video.
"It's amazing that we live in a world now where every one has platforms to speak their mind. But having this false idea of you made up and that's now just who you are can be difficult to deal with," Justine wrote on Saturday, March 4.
She went on to say, "I'm apparently not even allowed to defend myself. And what is the point really because that's not what the people want… they want to believe the drama and the negative storyline."
She added, "So call me all the names you want. Life is all about perspective and I've learned a lot about that in the last year. But the way y'all force me to prove my blackness to you every day because of just SOME of the MANY friends I have.. for the past 9+ years at that, is not right."
In a separate tweet, Justine noted, "And I'm not about to sit here and list all that I've accomplished in my career over the years and continue to on a daily basis to appease y'all…." Concluding her statement, Justine suggested that she wouldn't "speak on this again."
Justine's tweets arrived after it was reported that she deactivated her Twitter account as of Monday, February 27. At the time, fans noticed that her account was no longer available on the blue bird app, though Justine's Instagram page is still accessible.
Her decision earned even more backlash from Internet users with one commenting, "so she was all confident and baddie for what? couldn't even take the heat." Another fumed fan wrote, "Karma's a relaxing thought. Aren't you envious that for you it's not?"
Justine landed in hot water after Hailey posted a now-deleted video of herself, Justine and Kendall Jenner reciting the audio that said, "I'm not saying she deserved it, but God's timing is always right." Fans quickly speculated that it was directed toward Selena Gomez as it was shared in the week when the "Only Murders in the Building" actress was body-shamed.
Hailey, however, denied the accusations. "I never comment on this type of thing but we were just having a girls night and did a random tik tok sound for fun," she stressed. "It's not directed at anyone [sparkles and white heart emojis]."
