With race relations becoming a highly debated topic, one social media superstar, Nikita Dragun, who has more than 8 million followers on Instagram, has found herself in the middle of it all after a recent tweet.

Beauty influencer Nikita Dragun has been accused of blackfishing in the past, and sparked new controversy when she tweeted:

“what race is nikita gonna be today?”

Many of her followers wasted no time in jumping in to reply as some reignited blackfishing accusations against her.

Nikita Dragun caught wind of the criticism and responded. She wrote:
“i know it’s a joke to comment on my race but i’m really tired of having to defend myself on every post. “she’s hispanic today” i’m hispanic everyday. my mom is mexican. my dad is asian. i’m mixed. the end. bye….growing up mixed i was never enough or fully accepted. i don’t have to pick a side. i am not incomplete of my races. i do not lack anything. i am proud of ALL of me.”
She later defended her darker skin tone and suggested it happened because of the summer season.
