the ‘but alexandra burke won so the public cant be racist’ etc is invalid when its more about all the awful articles and microagressions she had to deal with

She lost Strictly when she’s arguably the best contestant they’ve ever had on that show so that says it all really

She’s such a talented woman, I saw her in The Bodyguard and she was phenomenal, seemed like a lovely woman as well

I think it was her behaviour that pissed people off....she was good and she knew it but week in and week out with all the praise she got was met with fake disbelief...it was nauseating.
How can you win X Factor then not win SCD and blame it on the colour of her skin ....you can’t use it just when it suits you.

She hasn't blamed not winning on the colour of her skin.

Did you watch the video?

Edit- Oh you meant Hayden.

I always found her OTT interviews and stuff kind of nauseating as she seemed so disingenuous.

But I don't think that's very relevant to this video tbh.

I wasn’t referring to the video...I responded to other comments.

She always seemed fake to me, and mike rusticgal has said she won arguably the most competitive series of X factor - you can’t pick and choose certain battles

She is as thick as mince and had zero charisma

The GBP said

No thanks luv

Hence why she flopped and is trying to stay relevant by jumping on the bandwagon

Not relevant to a video you haven't even watched.

Being asked to bleach her skin and being hounded by Dan Wootton has absolutely nothing to do with "flopping".

I can understand how racism could've manufactured itself in the way that both XF and Strictly are produced, and this is sadly the terrible reality of the treatment of several POC (more notably on XF). I'm not speaking for how she is/may be as a person, as I haven't really followed her post-XF, yet no matter how 'fake' she is/people perceive her to be, there is no denying in the fact that her experiences with racism on both shows, which she outlined on her live, should never have happened in the first place, regardless of the opinion of the GBP.
