Mbah told BuzzFeed News: "I wasn't surprised when I first received that tweet but I was definitely disappointed."

The reason she wasn't surprised was because she has seen dark-skinned women shamed for no other reason than being themselves online. "It's happened to me before and I think almost every dark skin girl can say the same too," she said.

She added: "I'm glad my tweet went viral because now I feel like I have a platform which I want to use to talk about things like that and give advice to other dark skin women who are going through similar situations and probably blaming themselves for it.

She felt it was important to reply to the comment because: "I actually wanted people to see that colorism is still real."

Although Mbah said she wasn't surprised by the tweet mentioned above, there was one tweet she shared on her Instagram that she felt "offended by the most". "It's just so sad," she added.

"Overall I want all my dark skin girls to know that we are chocolate goddesses no matter what anyone says!" Mbah said.
