Screencap: Twitter

FOX 5 News anchor Alyse Eady is not here for Twitter users denying her ethnicity.

Eady, 34, stunned Atlanta’s FOX 5 viewers by wearing an ethnic braided hairstyle while on the air. According to news analysts, braided extension hairstyles violates dress code and journalistic standards in some markets.

Eady, a former Miss Arkansas 2010 and Miss America 2011 runner-up, checked a follower who objected to her wearing braids extensions because she is white.

The tweet was deleted, but the man referred to Eady as a culture vulture – a public figure who misappropriates another culture.

Eady may look biracial or mixed race, but looks can be deceiving. Google Images shows both of her parents are fully Black.

“Who’s gonna tell him …,” Eady tweeted to her followers after the man’s offensive comment. She followed up with another tweet: “I’m BLACK! And if you feel foolish now, you should.”

Eady’s followers were supportive and praised her for passionately defending her Black heritage.
