Angry fans are comparing Sabrina Claudio to Camila Cabello, Selena Gomez because of her racist online past

Yikes all around!

Another day, another pop star whose old-but-not-old-enough racist posts get dug up and spewed out online, am I right?

This screenshot is from 2018, according to fans.

Not to be a total cynic, but it's hard not to think "ugh, another one bites the dust," when you see all of the gross, anti-black rhetoric lurking in singer Sabrina Claudio's Twitter and Instagram history.

These are older tweets, made under Claudio's current Twitter account.

These tweets were made from Claudio's old handle.

In one tweet, she joked about being a "black girl" for Halloween — with a casual n-word sprinkled in for good measure. In an Instagram comment, she used a derogatory slur.

Outraged fans were quick to declare the singer, who's previously worked with 6lack, Khalid and Duckwrth, cancelled for her anti-black comments.

Many compared her comments to those made by Camila Cabello, who got exposed for her round of racist comments a few months ago, or Selena Gomez, who famously mocked using a hashtag to "save lives" when it came to Black Lives Matter.

And much of Claudio's fanbase was especially upset because of the trend that her words fell into — of white Latina women believing they can use the n-word and disrespect black people, and black women in particular, because they're also people of color.

Claudio issued a statement a day after she deleted the incriminating tweets — hah! Classic.

"I am deeply sorry for the insensitive words I've used," she said in an iPhone note — the most sincere apology format. "I realize my past ignorance is affecting people I care so much about and I am so sorry." Yeah, I bet you are, Sabrina.

Many fans were also quick to point out that honestly… it's not so bad that Sabrina was stopped, because she never really even got started — and her anti-blackness highlighted the gross, but way too common, form of racism that black people experience at the hands of other people of color.

It be ya own playlist, guys!
