Skai Jackson is an American actress, YouTube star, and author. She was born on April 8, 2002, and is 18 years old. She might be very young but, she is considered one of the most influential teens in the world. She rose to fame with her performance in the Disney series, Jessie, and its sequel Bunk’d.
She voiced in Marvel Rising and DreamWorks Dragons: Rescue Riders. She has authored the book named Reach for the Skai: How to Inspire, Empower, and Clapback. Her novel released in 2019.
Skai Jackson is very young – a mere 18 year old – but that does not stop her from taking up her responsibility as an active citizen of the country. She is using her voice and influence on her social media platforms and trying to bring reform. She is fighting racism that is prevalent in the world and helping others to expose people (even celebrities) who support racism.
Skai Jackson Doxing Minor
The Internet seemed to be divided into two groups when Skai Jackson took it upon herself to reveal a racist minor. He was caught using racist slurs frequently and that was not o
kay with Skai. She declared a war on Twitter by posting the screenshots of the guy’s posts, where he made all such offensive comments. She mentioned the school the minor was attending and also requested the school authorities to look into the matter. What came next was bizarre.
Thousands of people found this act as doxing and offensive. Doxing is an act where you reveal personal information of a person publicly without their consent. Some people believed that Skai’s act can ruin the life of the minor and she has no right to do so.
There are many videos running currently on YouTube where people are protesting to ‘ban’ Skai Jackson. There are even a lot of rumors circulating that Skai Jackson has personally asked her more 50,000 followers to harass and bully the minor. She has also been questioned about the authenticity of the posts she is updating.
Skai seemed unaffected by the allegations and outrage. The fiery teenager officially released a statement saying that if someone is old and bold enough to make such offensive remarks, then they should be bold enough to handle the consequences as well.
Regarding the doxing allegations, Skai was pretty clear from the start that she would not be misusing her platform. She requested her followers to not reveal the minor’s address as that would be going way too far. Skai might be young, but she sure knows how to be just.
Skai Jackson Exposes Hartley Sawyer
It is painful to see when celebrities, who are influential, have a platform to make their voices be heard, and have a fan base, misuse their power. We are talking about Hartley Sawyer.
You would remember Hartley Sawyer with his role in The Flash. Jackson, with her new role as an activist, was receiving several DMs from her fans asking for help. She found out about Hartley and his previous tweets where he made plenty of derogatory comments.
His tweets were a nasty demonstration of misogyny (telling people that he’d like to cut breasts is not funny), homophobic, racist (claiming that America’s 80% prison population is African-American), sexist, and a lot more.
Skai Jackson exposed all of them and demanded some action to be taken against him. As a result, the makers of The Flash fired Hartley. They criticized Hartley’s behavior and called his tweet downright derogatory.
Skai Jackson feels sorry for him but believes that he had it coming. Hartley is a verified account and she feels that he needs to be more responsible with the message he spreads in the world. Hartley has made an official statement where he has apologized for hurting people’s sentiment.
We wish Skai Jackson complete luck in her journey. The world needs more strong and independent leaders like her after all.
