Shortly after Trey Songz and Fabolous dropped the MIKExANGEL-assisted “Pick Up the Phone” visual, Keke Palmer took to social media to express her disdain for her cameo. Palmer says her appearance wasn’t approved and said it is another example of women being misused in Hollywood.

“This is preposterous,” she wrote in an Instagram post. “How am I in this video Trey? After you found me in a closet HIDING because I was so afraid of anymore conflict. Literally, my last option was to hide because you all would not listen when I said I did not want to be in the video the FIRST time.”

Keke also claimed she was disrespected and “sexually intimidated” at the shoot. “Just cause you give someone food and alcohol and throw in a little sexual intimidation doesn’t mean they will buckle,” Palmer wrote. “Yet, you still disrespected me as a young woman, whom you’ve known since she was TWELVE. YOU STILL, defied my wishes and in turn showed your lack of respect for a brand that took me fourteen years to build and put me in the video against my wishes.”

Palmer says that her scene was sercertly filmed.

“I clearly said no,” she wrote. “And you said okay, yet I was being secretly filmed when you told me ‘let me just show you the idea’?? Wow…this is the sexism and misogyny I refer to because if I was a dude, he wouldn’t have even tried me like this. Let this be a lesson to all, I’m not for the bullshit. I’m serious about my business and you will not use my likeness without MY permission. When you in front of a boss you treat them like one, like I treat YOU. NO MEANS NO!!!!!!! People have to listen to women and stop questioning them and their intelligence. Speak up, cause when you look someone in the face and they say ‘I understand. You don’t have to feel pressured to do the video’ and they STILL put you in it, it is a violation. It would be great to be able to handle these things privately but why when they aren’t respected?”

Keke explained in a series of videos that she was under the influence at the party when the video was shot and she was anxious due to pressure to be in the video. “I hid in the closet because I was so afraid,” he said. “I didn’t know what to do. I really don’t like conflict. It was just too much. I started to feel overwhelmed.”

“I have suffered with anxiety most of my life, I did not go to high school, I am a bit socially inept,” she added in a caption. “At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter, what matters is I said ‘no.’ After all that dramatic shit I still wound up in the video somehow. P.S. Don’t feel bad about saying how you feel.”

Trey Songz replied to Keke’s claims saying that she’s “buggin” and she could’ve called him instead of creating the tweets.

This is preposterous. How am I in this video Trey? After you found me in a closet HIDING because I was so afraid of anymore conflict. Literally my last option was to hide because you all would not listen when I said I did not want to be in the video the FIRST time. Just cause you give someone food and alcohol and throw in a little sexual intimidation doesn't mean they will buckle. Yet, you still disrespected me as a young women, whom you've known since she was TWELVE. YOU STILL, defied my wishes and in turn showed your lack of respect for a brand that took me fourteen years to build and put me in the video against my wishes. Come on bruh, I clearly said no and you said okay, yet I was being secretly filmed when you told me "let me just show you the idea"?? Wow. This is what I'm referring to in my previous post, this is the sexism and misogyny I refer to because if I was a dude, he wouldn't have even tried me like this. Let this be a lesson to all, I'm not for the bullshit. I'm serious about my business and you will not use my likeness without MY permission. When you in front of a boss you treat them like one, like I treat YOU. NO MEANS NO!!!!!!! People have to listen to women and stop questioning them and their intelligence.

It would be great to be able to handle these things privately but why when they aren't respected?
