Keke Palmer is attempting to catch up on her gang slang. The “TLC” actress took to social media to question the phrase “On Dave.”
“What does ‘On Dave’ mean? Tryna keep up with the new slang,” she asked Twitter followers.
A fan responded to Palmer’s question, writing, “@KekePalmer on king david. Its black disciple gang stuff lol”
Palmer replied, “Ahhhhh got it!”
“You know my family from Chicago haha with me having questions like that lol,” she added.
The phrase “On Dave” is in reference to the Black Disciple’s founder David Barksdale, aka King Dave. Members of the Black Disciple street gang say “On Dave” to honor their fallen leader.
Barksdale died from kidney failure in 1974 as a result of a shooting in 1967.
Palmer was rumored to be romantically linked with Black Disciple-affiliated rapper Tadoe following the release of a sex tape in early January.
But the Glo Gang rapper took to Twitter to refute the allegations.
“Mann y’all frontn y’all move dat ain’t No damn KE KE n dat old a-- video!” he wrote.
Palmer learned of the rumor and worked fervently to clear her name in a series of tweets.
“This is the perfect bullying example.. I have black hair, so now I’m a girl in a random video with black hair?
“Now I’m the subject to be attacked because I’m known and successful? You people can be so simple,” she wrote.
Palmer went on to refer to Tadoe as a fan, citing a photo the two previously took.
“I am a victim because I took a picture with a fan? Should I just not take pictures with fans that have less than positive connotations?” she wrote.
Tadoe previously posted a photo to IG of himself with the “CrazySexyCool” star, with a caption, reading, “In da crib koolin wit my lil homie @kekepalmer.”
Palmer continued her rant in several more posts:
“Everything that I have done to empower, not only a generation of young women but men too, can be ignored because of someone’s hatred.
“I have never in my life seen so clearly how quickly hatred can be spread. Just from a fan photo..Wow.
“You can spread lies but know who you spreading lies about.
“People don’t deserve that, I’m living my life like you, but it’s okay to swarm my mentions with distasteful comments.
“There is no win, people are not allowed to defend themselves these days, but are questioned when they don’t try.
“When I was a little kid I could atleast fight somebody for lying on me lol! I’m a grown woman now, so I’ll just forgive you.
“A million females in the world with black hair, but it’s Keke Palmer. Talk about REACHING. The weave is not even real hair #stopit.
“Always laugh it off. Enjoy your Friday everyone!!” she wrote.
