Keke Palmer Provides Insight into her Viral Clair Huxtable Comments


[Keke Palmer’s recent comment about the character Clair Huxtable from “The Cosby Show” caused quite a stir online. During her appearance on SiriusXM, Palmer addressed the backlash she received and clarified that her original remark was meant to be lighthearted. However, she also provided a deeper explanation behind her comment.

Palmer believes that Clair Huxtable, being a lawyer and mother from an upper middle-class family, was created to challenge other stereotypical Black female characters on screen. However, she feels that this sometimes made the character feel unrelatable. Palmer compares Clair to Florida Evans from the 1970s sitcom “Good Times,” who was a stay-at-home mother in a struggling family. According to Palmer, both characters represent extreme opposites, which can make them feel unrelatable.

She also mentions Vivian Banks from “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” played by Janet Hubert and later by Daphne Maxwell Reid, as a character that she found more nuanced and relatable. Palmer acknowledges the importance of both Clair Huxtable and Florida Evans, stating that they were necessary characters at the time. However, she expresses her happiness about the increased representation of Black women on television.

Palmer sparked a debate on Twitter after calling Clair Huxtable “uppity” during her appearance on “The Terrell Show.” While some users found her comments fun and harmless, others disagreed with her viewpoint. Despite the controversy, Palmer continues to share her opinions on various topics, recently discussing healthcare and maternal mortality with Vice President Kamala Harris on her podcast, “Baby, This Is Keke Palmer.”
