However, shortly after signing off the virtual ceremony, online trolls began criticizing Marsai's appearance-specifically, many seemed to comment on her hair and teeth.
Despite everything, Marsai took a moment to thank the BET Awards for continuing to celebrate and honor Black creatives.
"I'm sorry to anyone that I offended or haven't gotten to your expectations about how I'm supposed to be, and I apologize, and I never want to hurt anyone's feelings or have anyone anxious about what my decisions are", she continued.
The Little actress and producer pretended to choke up, and fought through tears. "These don't look like a veneer to me". She then motioned for a tissue, and was handed a $100 bill, which she then blew her nose with.
Thankfully, instead of letting it get to her too much, Marsai made a decision to fire back after some users just felt the need to let her know they don't like her hair and teeth! "Justice for Breonna Taylor".
Listening, haters? Marsai just proved she doesn't care and called you broke.
In the video, the starlet feigns opening an envelope as she would have done had the awards been live and in person, noting she had "the victor in her head". Glee's Amber Riley commented, "Period sis" with the laughing and crying emoji.
She tweeted about the situation before posting the video: "Sorry some of y'all don't like my hair". Or teeth. which are my actual teeth btw. Good thing I don't put my effort into trying to please everyone. I like it. Chile I'm 16 this year, let me live.
If her point wasn't clear enough, Marsai responded to the criticism about her appearance on Twitter, as well.
