Keri Hilson was chastised on Twitter Friday for suggesting people should thank Rachel Dolezal, president of the Spokane, Wash., National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) chapter, who is reportedly actually white. 

The singer and actor told her followers, "Identity, pathological, & parental issues aside, she's doing more than most of us do for ourselves."


These comments were so poorly received that Hilson's name became a trending topic on Twitter with users slamming her.

Hilson continued to explain herself, saying Dolezal had serious issues but had done good work for the black community. The NAACP stands by Dolezal's record, she pointed out. 

This is all her personal opinion, Hilson added, and no one needs to agree with it... or thank Dolezal.
