Amanda Gorman says she was racially profiled on her walk home on Friday night. She shared her experience on Instagram, explaining how it shows the difficult "reality of Black girls."
"A security guard tailed me on my walk home tonight. He demanded if I lived there because 'you look suspicious,'" Gorman tweeted. "I showed my keys & buzzed myself into my building. He left, no apology."
"This is the reality of black girls: One day you're called an icon, the next day, a threat," she added. (ET)
