Local NAACP chapter president Rachel Dolezal became a center of attention on Friday after she was outed by her parents as a white woman acting like she’s black. The Internet’s response to the story has manifested on Twitter as #AskRachel, containing a mix of questions for the activist’s bizarre statements, as well as some more unusual inquiries and responses.
The controversy began when Dolezal was slapped with a city ethics investigation after “misrepresenting herself” as an African-American on a job application. The trending topic itself resulted alongside Dolezal’s interview with KXLY4, where she awkwardly walked away after being asked whether she was truly black.
Here’s some of the Twitter highlights:
