Tori Spelling Slammed for ‘Racist’ Pic of Daughter During Quarantine

Tori Spelling is in hot water over a picture she posted of her daughter, Hattie McDermott, while in quarantine.

Recently on Instagram Story, the “Beverly Hills, 90210” alum — who is the mother of six children with husband Dean McDermott, including stepson Jack — shared a snap of her 8-year-old, who dressed as the character of “McQuisha.”

In the controversial pic, Hattie wears a green bandanna over her head, and has Cheetos rubber-banded to her fingers, resembling long nails.

“Days kept inside we have to get creative… Hattie has become McQuisha in her Cheeto extension nails!” the 46-year-old wrote.

After the pic went viral, several social media users slammed the actress as “racist” because they felt the picture perpetuated false stereotypes of black women.

“Your truly an ignorant low class racist who’s raising a child & you need to APOLOGIZE. I’m appalled and your lower than low and ultimately disgusting,” one commenter exclaimed.

“That picture you posted of your daughter calling her Mcquisha was not cool. So since she put on a bandana and make some fake Cheeto nails you try to give her what you think is a ‘black name,’” a different Instagram account posted.

“2020 we’re in a pandemic and you still find the time to be racist,” another added, referencing the current coronavirus pandemic.

Last week, Spelling complained about the lack of toilet paper in stores due to panic buying caused by COVID-19.

“I just did a little [Instagram] Live talking about how I’m sick, because we’re all sick, and the kids’ schools are closed, so we’re all home, and it’s raining and the stores are out of toilet paper and we have seven butts to wipe and no toilet paper to be found,” Spelling said on IG Story.

However, her husband later came to the rescue and “found” some toilet paper.

“My husband is a rock star… he found TP! Miracles do happen,” Spelling captioned a selfie of her holding a roll.
