Chloe Bailey’s new sex scene sparks color dialogue about Halle Berry
new offer Chloe Bailey In — where she was filmed having sex — sparked a debate about racism and colorism in Hollywood…and now, Halle Berryleg taut.
You may have noticed that the latter is common This weekend, the reason because of this rhetoric that has been launched since Donald GloverTV’s latest series, “Swarm,” came out on Friday… which opens with a scene depicting Chloe doing the deed in very graphic detail.
Since then, there’s been a lot of chatter about her decision to do the sex scene… some say it’s a great/good move for her, others feel it aligns with other choices she’s made recently – like coming out One with Chris Brown — which some think is… not wise.
As a single user on Twitter put it … “Where’s Chloe Bailey’s teacher pls??? She’s been making terrible decisions lately, she shouldn’t have done that Swarm sex scene and I won’t get into her latest collaboration.” Many people reacted similarly.
Halle Berry is not black, she is a biracial “white trans” plus she has been a favorite of the Holywerds. Meghan Good just talked about how difficult her career has been by taking on these kinds of roles. Chole will learn the hard way that we don’t make the rules. https://t.co/KBXegM7vXa

On Saturday, that convo shifted when someone brought up his aura in comparison. She tweeted, “Halle Berry got a role in stills again, did she get an Oscar?” The point she was making…Haley also did tumultuous things in her day – “Monster’s Ball” being the prime example, for which she won an Academy Award – but that in and of itself didn’t diminish her work/awards.
This user was basically saying that Chloe’s sex scene wouldn’t define her acting career, and that it’s unfair to suggest that she would be derailed because of it. Basically, stop shooting her prematurely.
However, another Twitter user responded… stating that Haley has the benefit of fair skin and even going so far as to claim that she is “white.” Apparently it isn’t — Haley looks black, not white… which is literally swiping in white.
However, regardless of the connotations, this woman’s point of view (as I later explained her page) is that Haley fits into Hollywood’s traditional white European beauty standards… more than Khloe, or any other dark-skinned black woman for that matter. So, she thinks that Haley has had an easier time in the entertainment industry than Khloe has in this particular regard… aka cutting it all out.
In other words, this user feels that colorism is still alive and well in the entertainment industry…and that darker-skinned black artists are going to be tougher compared to any of their lighter-skinned counterparts – which they might be. righteous.
Of course, there’s also the Bailey sisters factor here… namely, the fact that Khloe’s famous sister, Halle Bailey, has a more buttoned-up actor than her older sister, perhaps.
Halle (Bailey) stars in The Little Mermaid with Disney – very family friendly, etc. She generally avoids controversy over her work. Khloe, on the other hand, is microscopic more often…and tends to be labeled as the wild child of the two.
Anyway… we hope we can all agree that anyone can do whatever the hell they want, no matter all the chirping. We’re sure Khloe doesn’t care about any of it.
