LaLa is tired of ya’ll saying she’s a bad actress. Real talk Power fans are ruthless so you already know she gets a lot of heat during the season.

Apparently the 38-year-old has seen ALL the comments about her role on the Starz series and opened up about all the hate she receives during a sit-down on Power 105’s “The Breakfast Club.”

When co-host Charlamagne asked if she gets upset when people say she can’t act, Anthony responded, “Not really.”

“You got to be worried when people aren’t talking,” she explained. “My thing is that…I’m doing it. So, if I couldn’t do it, then why am I doing it? If you can do it better then why you not getting the jobs I’m getting?”

She said just because she had a different journey to become an actor doesn’t mean she didn’t put the work in.

“I think people naturally wanna hate because you started differently.‘You’re not a real actor. You started on radio. You’re this…you’re that,” she continued. “Alright, maybe I didn’t come into it like you, but I put the work in and I continue to put the work in.So, that doesn’t bother me.”

Anthony also talked about her tragic exit from the show after her character LaKeisha Grant was fatally shot by her former BFF Tasha St. Patrick (played by Naturi Naughton).

“If you’re going to leave a show, then you want to leave a show with a bang, literally,” she said. “You want people to talk about it. You don’t just want to disappear, and nobody cares about it. I feel like this is a moment people will always talk about.”

She also took to social media to address her character Lakeisha’s shocking death.

“SPOILER ALERT‼️ Last night was so emotional for me,” she wrote. “This was hard to watch😢 I want to thank @50cent & @courtneyakemp for giving me the chance to bring LAKEISHA GRANT to life. I’m forever grateful to the two of them for believing in me. @naturi4real you are an amazing talent and an amazing friend. Im so glad we took this ride together @josephsikora4 I thank you everyday for the work we did. You are phenomenal!”

Anthony continued, “That final scene, when you walked in and dropped to your knees…WOW. You pushed me to grow as an actor & a person. I was honored to be your KEISHA. I’m going to miss working with you so much😢 @omarihardwickofficial & the the rest of the POWER cast and crew my love for all of you runs deep. We are a family🙏🏽and finally to the fans of Power. I love all of you so much. Thank you for taking this ride every season with us. You have made Power a show people will never forget.”
