BEVERLY HILLS, CALIFORNIA - FEBRUARY 06: Yvonne Orji attends the 2020 13th Annual ESSENCE Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon at Beverly Wilshire, A Four Seasons Hotel on February 06, 2020 in Beverly Hills, California.

Yvonne Orji has entered the chat to clear her name from a fan who called her the “meanest celebrity” she’s ever met.

When Orji isn’t playing Issa Rae’s BFF on HBO’s Insecure, she uses her talents touring as a stand-up comedian, but apparently one of her jokes didn’t land too well with a fan.

In the popular trend on Twitter, “Who was the ‘meanest’ celeb you’ve ever met?” a fan named Crystal began to tell her story about when she met the Insecure star.

“I met Yvonne Orji at a WOMEN’S EMPOWERMENT CONFERENCE. She was about to give her speech and I asked for a pic while she was waiting. She said no. I respect her privacy, move on and take my seat in the front row. She gets to the part of her speech about being persistent.”

Crystal continued: “She’s like ‘I only got to where I got because I never took no for an answer.’ And then she gestures over to me and says something like ‘That girl wanted a picture with me, but I said no. If she were more intentional about what she wants, maybe she’d have her pic.'”

“In the moment I was like uhh that was rude. I thought she might come up to me and be like oh I was joking and take the pic but no. That put a bad taste in my mouth about her forever. And I didn’t even want the pic that bad! I just thought it would be cool to post on my story.”

The fan couldn’t remember exactly what Yvonne said to her so she pulled up the video for receipts.

The video and thread got a lot of traction which led to the actress responding.

“Hey Crystal, I’m saddened that’s how you left the event feeling after an encounter with me. Truly wasn’t my intention to make you feel anything less than the beautiful woman you are.”

Crystal hasn’t followed up on Orji’s apology leaving other fans to step in with their commentary. See how fans are reacting to Orji’s apology:
