How would you feel if your parents revealed to you that you aren’t actually the ethnicity that you’ve thought you were your whole life?
Victoria Waldrip is currently causing a lot of backlash online after revealing that she is actually black.

The Atlanta-based 17-year-old, known by her online alias as woahhvicky revealed that despite her pale skin and blonde hair, she is actually African-American. She also uses the N-word regularly and embraces everything she sees as African-American culture.

“My whole entire life my mom kept telling me ‘you’re white’ and I never believed her because I knew I was black.” one of Vicky’s posts says.
In another video the 17-year-old teaches her followers how to fight while wearing a grill in her mouth, repeatedly saying the N-word, arguing she can use the term because she’s black.
Her posts continue to focus on her race – in one video she tells her followers they’re ‘racist as f**k for not accepting her self-identification’.
Victoria says in another post:
“How are you gonna sit here and tell me what race I am? If I say I’m black then I’m black.”

All of these comments were followed by what she claims are DNA results that show 44-45% of her ethnicity is African while the rest is European.
Originally she said she was 25 per cent black and showed a test which said something else, and the reason why the results differ is so far unclear.
With all of this heat she is sparking up, she has also generated a ton of hate from her followers and fans, most of them labeling her as racist.
One comment read: “Your [sic] not f****** black . Your mom and dad must have dropped you on your d*** head.”
“Your [sic] racist! You talk like an idiot and put funny headgear on your head and call yourself black! Its like you read a book on stereotypes and imitated it.” Another one said.
Even though she has been met with quite the criticism, she still continues to claim she’s black, going as far to produce makeup tutorials on YouTube meant specifically for African-American women.
In an interview with Michael McCrudden, Victoria said she realised she’d ‘made it’ after rappers shared her videos – including the likes of Snoop Dogg and Plies. She also stated that she wants to be a rapper and maybe even have her own show one day. Taking the Danielle Bregoli route there.
Even though both of Victoria’s parents are Caucasian, she claims that the African-American ethnicity comes from her grandfather who she claims is black.
Yeah, I don’t think having a black grandfather will take up almost half of your ethnicity, but whatever you choose to believe, I guess.
