Around the holidays on Twitter, Yvette Nicole Brown who goes by the user @YNB was lashing out at Isaiah Washington with referencing the him as a “coon”, a racial slur. While certain online blogs have covered this, no one is showing what actually has occurred. Where this started was where Yvette Nicole Brown posted the link to Isaiah being given a show on Fox.

This led to Yvette Nicole Brown attacking Isaiah Washington with this post:

The first reference to the racism from Yvette Nicole Brown is stating “not all skin folks are kin folk”.
She followed up by posting the gif referencing Isaiah as a dancing coon. For those that are not aware, coon is a racial slur that has deep roots in history.
For a more in-depth dicussion into how the term has been used racially you can check this link.
The coon caricature is one of the most insulting of all anti-black caricatures. The name itself, an abbreviation of raccoon, is dehumanizing. As with Sambo, the coon was portrayed as a lazy, easily frightened, chronically idle, inarticulate, buffoon. The coon differed from the Sambo in subtle but important ways. Sambo was depicted as a perpetual child, not capable of living as an independent adult. The coon acted childish, but he was an adult; albeit a good-for-little adult. Sambo was portrayed as a loyal and contented servant. Indeed, Sambo was offered as a defense for slavery and segregation. How bad could these institutions have been, asked the racialists, if blacks were contented, even happy, being servants? The coon, although he often worked as a servant, was not happy with his status. He was, simply, too lazy or too cynical to attempt to change his lowly position. Also, by the 1900s, Sambo was identified with older, docile blacks who accepted Jim Crow laws and etiquette; whereas coons were increasingly identified with young, urban blacks who disrespected whites. Stated differently, the coon was a Sambo gone bad.
it was quickly met with Twitter users offended at her display of racism.
As any person would be offended, Isaiah responded and @YNB just doubled down on her racism. Stating that she didn’t “call him a coon” well she sure as hell referenced it, and then stated “we all know you are.” Again referencing the dancing coon gif saying he was dancing a gig.
Now, heres where it gets even deeper, with DisneyPlus and Robert Iger being drawn into the mix. Disney has recently been in the news having to deal with its racist past.
Due to showing cartoons on Disney plus that have racist characters and background. Some have been omitted from playing but the blatant racism displayed by Yvette Nicole Brown brings to question if Disney and Robert Iger support racism even in todays day and age.
They have recently hired Yvette Nicole Brown for Lady and the Tramp and she has stated in this Twitter feed.
Yvette, seemingly to always double down on her stupidity even goes has far as to bring this up in her reference to her Twitter Followers vs Isaiahs.
Ha! Your twitter presence isn’t even more impressive than mine! What are you doing, son?!
I’m here enjoying my holiday minding my own twitter business & I gotta play reindeer games with a hateful, alt-right, delusional clown? @IWashington you sure know how to harsh a vibe.

Well, Yvettes Twitter following was definitely not impressive as she was quickly called out on twitter by user @kaga2024 showed.
This led to another embarrassing incident with Yvette trying to call her followers to report and get the user that exposed her as a fraud banned from Twitter.
