The BET Awards were lit! While Sunday night’s show was completely virtual, fans on social media seemed to think this was the best year yet. The show definitely set the standard for how many may do it moving forward. But, with all of the successes, there was some shade — and Marsai Martin definitely felt it on her end. The Black-ish star announced Megan Thee Stallion as the Best Female Hip Hop Artist, but many were focused on the 16-year-old’s hair, not her announcement.

It was comments like this one that flooded timelines after Martin’s video…

But Black Twitter was quick to defend Marsai’s Black Girl Magic!

However, Ms. Marsai didn’t need any help — she took to Twitter to silence the haters herself!
Sorry some of y’all don’t like my hair. Or teeth … which are my actual teeth btw. Good thing I don’t put my effort into trying to please everyone. I like it. Chile I’m 16 this year, let me live. I’m trying to stay sane in quarantine. Enjoy the #BETAwards 😉

Oh, and she had more to say on Instagram…
So, what’s the lesson here folks? Leave our young, talented, beautiful little sis Marsai ALONE! Also, she doesn’t care about you broke, bitter haters.
