Keke Palmer recently took it to Twitter to remind fans of the importance of respecting consent in all spaces, including non-sexual scenarios. The legendary actress resumed an uncomfortable encounter with a fan wherein she made it clear that she did not want to take a picture. According to the starlet, the fan still proceeded to film her against her will.

This is not the first time Keke Palmer speaks up about consent.

Palmer was at Songz’s house during the filming of the music video for a party. Here’s an excerpt of what Palmer had to say about the incident with Trey. And as of today, the famed singer is facing serious allegations agaisnt him pertaining to non-consensual sexual acts from multiple women.
