Lakeith Stanfield Addresses Backlash After Dissing Kamala Harris's Hair

Actor Lakeith Stanfield posted a video to social media after he made comments about Kamala Harris's hair -- and was dragged online.

"I don't like her hair, but other than that this is better than the last one but still sad," Stanfield captioned a picture of the vice-presidential candidate.

A follower then called him out about his words. He replied, "I say what i want on my page. Where are all you warriors of power when i post about the things that i believe in and support? You won't pressure me into speaking how YOU think i should speak." 

Social media dragged him further -- then he responded with a video saying:

 "Welcome everyone from shaderoom lol. This is from years ago but let me happen to not favor Kamalas hair and suddenly i hate black women. Y’all know that isn’t true." 

Is he forgiven or did he cross the line?
