Marsai Martin is not here for the foolishness.
On Sunday night, the Black-ish star made a special appearance for the virtual 2020 BET Awards. During the remote ceremony, the teenage actress and producer presented the Best Female Hip-Hop Artist award to Megan Thee Stallion.
In addition, Marsai won the Young Stars Award.
However, shortly after signing off the virtual ceremony, online trolls began criticizing Marsai's appearance—specifically, many seemed to comment on her hair and teeth.
The Little actress quickly shut down the internet trolls with glorious responses on Twitter and Instagram.
"Sorry some of y'all don't like my hair. Or teeth ... which are my actual teeth btw. Good thing I don't put my effort into trying to please everyone," she wrote, following the online judgement surrounding her looks. "I like it. Chile I'm 16 this year, let me live. I'm trying to stay sane in quarantine. Enjoy the #BETAwards."
On Instagram, Marsai uploaded a one-minute video calling out the same people who commented on her appearance.
"So, I was on Twitter and a lot of people have been addressing my hair or talking about my hair, and how it looks like a 'grandma's wig.' And they're talking about my veneers and this don't look like a veneer to me," she said, as she pulled out her retainer.

"I'm sorry to anyone I've offended or haven't gotten to your expectations about how I'm supposed to be. I apologize. I never want to hurt anyone's feelings or have anyone worry about what my decisions are," she continued, pretending to cry as she used a $100 bill to wipe away her fake tears.
Joking aside, she left her 2.4 million Instagram followers with one important message.
"Y'all we are in quarantine and we have more important things to focus on than my hair," she closed. "Justice for Breonna Taylor."
