Kheris Rogers who was bullied for her dark skin tone clapped back by creating a t-shirt line boasting the ingenious phrase, Flexing In My Complexion.
After amassing tens of thousands of likes and retweets, Taylor showed her baby sister the hugely positive comments referring to her as “beautiful” and calling her skin “gorgeous.”
The comments embedded a new confidence in young Kheris, who not too long ago, had transferred schools because of the immense bullying.
“She started to notice she was different,” Taylor told BuzzFeed News. “She would cry a lot, and talk about how she doesn’t like her skin tone.”
After the hype and support from social media, Kheris and big sister Taylor decided to flaunt the Flexing In My Complexion phrase on t-shirts for everyone worldwide.
“She was obsessed with the comments,” Taylor said. “So many people’s comments gave her a positive outlook on her skin. It gave her reassurance.”
