“Clearly, I’m still upset about it,” she said
Keke Palmer requests that her fans respect her personal space.
On Saturday, April 23, the 28-year-old actor and media personality discussed an “uncomfortable” encounter she had with someone who insisted on taking her picture over and over again.
“No means no, even when it doesn’t pertain to sex,” she tweeted. “I was at the bar the other day and this girl asked me three times for a picture and I told her three times nicely that I did not want (to) take one with her.”
Palmer, on the other hand, claimed that the girl continued to video her against her will and that there was nothing she could do about it.
“If I went off on her I would’ve been wrong,” she said in another tweet. “So I just nervously laughed while my privacy was invaded upon.”
As per Today, Palmer’s admirers rallied to her aid after learning of the incident.
Palmer elaborated on the incident on Instagram, saying she’s “still upset” about it since she “hated” having to grin and appear as if everything was fine.
Although she claims it’s only a “defense mechanism to laugh or joke in an uncomfortable situation,” she claims it can be deceiving for individuals who are unfamiliar with her personality.
“Literally I could be wanting to scream, and on the outside, I’m still performing,” she said. “The fact that I tell people no at all is therapeutic progress for me lbvs.”
“Creating boundaries can sometimes be so difficult but when you people please or always try to avoid conflict, you let yourself down every time,” Palmer continued. “Good luck to all those who also struggle with this from time to time.”
Palmer asked her admirers to respect her privacy and her decision to be on camera at the end of her post.
“If you ever want a picture with me and I say no, let’s just let that rock,” she said.
