Weeks after revealing his baby son Noah's mother on Instagram, the R&B star is now using his platform to publicly shame racist people, which has already resulted in one person losing their job.
Trey Songz began his attempt to out racist people on his Instagram by sharing a video of one of his own followers making a racist statement.
After he shared the video, the gym where she worked, 24 Hour Fitness, messaged Trey and said, "Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We are committed to creating and maintaining a culture that embraces and values diversity and inclusion. Based on this person's name - she is no longer an employee of ours."
In another post, Trey posted a racist message from a man who posted about hanging a young black boy from a tree. The singer also revealed the man's name and that he was an Airbnb user and said, 'Hey Timmy 👋🏾 say you got a @airbnb huh? 😒 nobody wanna stay in that s**t man'
Trey Songz has been getting plenty of love for using his platform to out racist people to his 12 million followers.
One user commented saying, 'Your account has quickly become my favorite these last few days' whilst another added, 'Baby keep posting and exposing them'.
After outing one man's racist post online, Trey Songz said, 'These people really exist right in ya face, go home and have visions of the old days all while telling us racism is some figment of our imagination. You ain’t gotta question what I’m on. I’m on edge...they killed all our leaders. Anybody that tried to teach us, murdered. Any time we had progression they slaughtered us and took it. I ain’t really no activist this just how I feel in my heart bout me and mine. I ain’t going out sad and if I do y’all better ride!!!'
