Yes, but that wasn’t always the case. In fact, Jackson admitted that she deleted her Instagram account when Family Reunion first hit Netflix due to the backlash she received from fans.
“When the show first came out, I literally had to delete Instagram from my phone because all of the comments on there were negative toward me in a sense,” Jackson exclusively told PureWow. “Like ‘Why is she so light?’ ‘Why is she trying to play a black girl?’ I’m not trying to play a black girl. I’m trying to play a mixed girl.”
Jackson revealed that when Mowry caught wind of the criticism, she immediately reached out and shared some words of advice. “[Mowry] was just very nurturing and helped me kind of understand where they came from,” she added. “But also, not allow that to affect how I proceed in my career.”
