On Sunday, the 15-year-old "Black-ish" star faced off against keyboard warriors who dissed her appearance on the BET Awards, most haters commenting on her hair and her "veneers."

Prior to the virtual awards, Marsai posted a photo from her pool in which donned a yellow dress and glasses.

Clearly, some weren't feeling her look and felt the need to voice their unsolicited opinions.

The actress began her clap back by feigning sadness in an Instagram video, saying she had been looking at negative comments on Twitter. She tugged on her hair to prove that it was real and removed her "veneers," which were actually just removable braces.

"It's hard, it's difficult. But I'm sorry to anyone I offended or haven't gotten to your expectations of how I'm supposed to be and I apologize and I never want to hurt anyone's feelings or have them worry about what my decisions are," she said while holding her hand over her face.

The actress then grabbed a $100 bill and pretended to blow her nose with it.

After acting as if she was overcome with emotion, Marsai looked straight at the camera for some real talk. 

"Y'all, we are in quarantine and we got more important things to focus on than just my hair," she said, adding, "Justice for Breonna Taylor."

Marsai response struck a chord with many fellow actors and actresses who praised her.

"The unbothered apology tour," "The Game" star Gabrielle Dennis commented.

"My cousin is better than y'all," Janelle Monae commented.
