Interestignly, Penny narrated the brutality she’s encountered in the entertainment industry.

“I’ve buried too many people to keep quiet and, personally, I spent ten days in a psychiatric ward because of the entertainment industry BS, especially #BlackRadio to suck my thumb [and] bury my head. I’m not a beauty queen, and I don’t have to impress you, or a wife or influencer. I am a broadcaster for social impact,” Penny tweeted.

“It was never a popularity contest and it won’t start today. It’s my life, my journey, my walk, my work and my truth. I don’t need your approval of me. I accepted myself when u believed the lies about me. When I was marginalized, I mastered (how) to stand alone. When I was rejected I loved me.”
