The fifth and final season of “Insecure” premiered Sunday night (Oct. 24) on HBO and Amanda Seales’ character has Black Twitter in a frenzy.

During the episode, Seales, who plays Tiffany DuBois, was seen sporting what appeared to be official Greek paraphernalia from Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., which Tiffany is a member of on the show, However, the “Small Doses: Potent Truths for Everyday Use” author is not a sister of the sorority, which prompted backlash from several people — including real AKAs.

“I don’t know why people keep asking me if I’m a soror. I am not a soror,” she said in her Instagram Stories.

“Tiffany is a soror. Tiffany is a character on a tv show. I didn’t write the character, I played the character. I am not a soror. I’m an actress and I’m playing a character on a TV show. And I think reality TV done really got folks fucked up because, you know, it’s like, ‘It’s all the same.’ But I’m just playing a character. That’s it. Y’all know that though. But some of y’all don’t. I feel like some folks really forget. It’s a TV show.”

Twitter user @Love_KSJW replied to a video of Seales’ explanation, tweeting, “Okay so hold up. This girl is not a Soror and had my SHIELD on her body?! @IssaRae @insecurhbo please do not do that again. That’s wildly disrespectful!”

Issa Rae sarcastically responded to the fan, writing, “Oh shit, let me tell @HBO to delete the one of the upcoming episodes then, hold on.”

In a separate Instagram post, Seales clarified her original remarks. “I would be honored to be a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha, but I simply am not,” she said. “When I am Tiffany, I wear the letters with pride and regard and respect for those who did cross the burning sands.”
