"Do not tell me I'm acting black because I'm not."

The "Cash Me Ousside" girl (aka Danielle Bregoli) insists she isn't capitalizing on urban culture—even if her look and songs are straight hip-hop. 

In the recently-released music video for her new track, "Mama Don't Worry (Still Ain't Dirty)," the meme-turned-rapper appears in a braided pony tail as she spits Auto-Tune-laced lyrics in her condemned childhood home.

Bregoli's video for "I Got It" features the 14-year-old bragging about her six-figure bank account and deriding jealous "bitches" from the driver's seat of a Rolls-Royce. 

But on the same day the video for "Mama Don't Cry" dropped, The Fader released an interview with Bregoli in which the she disparages the term "cultural appropriation." 

“I look at that cultural appropriation shit and I just ignore it because it’s ridiculous.” she says. “You cannot act a color. Do not tell me I’m acting black because I’m not.” 

It's just who she is—or so she claims. And as for those braids... 

"I get braids all the time, you can’t tell me I’m acting black because I braid my hair. That makes no sense whatsoever." 

If you beg to differ, do so quietly—unless you want to start a war with Bregoli and her 12 million Instagram followers.
