Amanda Seales Blasts Issa Rae for Not Empowering Black Women


Club Shay Shay

Amanda Seales’s appearance on Shannon Sharpe’s “Club Shay Shay” podcast went viral on Wednesday, April 24. The “Insecure” star dragged Issa Rae for not empowering Black women.

In the 3-hour interview, Amanda complained about everyone who has wronged her in the industry.

Amanda took aim at writer/producer Issa Rae for not empowering her on “insecure.”

“She wasn’t empowering to me,” Amanda told Shannon Sharpe. “She didn’t feel like I deserved to be protected… I have still always protected her because I felt like it is my responsibility to do so, but I realize now it is not.”

Amanda complained that she was escorted out of a “Black Emmys party” at the request of Issa Rae’s publicist.

She said Issa later denied kicking her out of the party.

“She called me and said, ‘Hey, I heard what happened this weekend. I just want you to know I have nothing to do with it.’”

Amanda expressed disappointment that Issa didn’t intervene.

“I said, ‘Listen, I am not saying that it’s going to be a problem on set, but I do think it is a problem that you don’t feel that you need to step in.’”

Issa reportedly replied, “‘Well, then we just have a difference in opinion. This is between y’all.’”

Amanda can be heard on her daily podcast, “The Amanda Seales Show,” and her weekly podcast, “Small Doses.”

She also hosts a syndicated radio show with Reach Media and Radio One that airs on multiple radio stations around the country.
