[Social Media] Tabitha Brown wins NAACP Image Award

Tabitha Brown—known for her viral recipes on TikTok and Facebook—wins the 52nd annual NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Social Media Personality.

Over the weekend, vegan TikTok influencer Tabitha Brown nabbed the NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Social Media Personality. 

Brown beat out comedians Kevin Fredericks (known as “KevOnStage”) and Karlton “NotKarltonBanks” Humes, actor Desi Banks Jr., and financial educator Tiffany “The Budgetnista” Aliche to win the award in the category. Brown and her family attended the 52nd annual award ceremony—hosted by Black Entertainment Television (BET)—virtually and hosted a watch party to celebrate her victory.

“It is such an honor to be … awarded for just being myself,” the North Carolina native said in her emotional acceptance speech. “I have dreamt all my life to perform and make people laugh and feel something.” Brown thanked her family and fans for supporting her dreams, adding, “When your people celebrate you and see you and uplift you, it’s better than anything in the world.” Brown ended her speech with her famous tagline: “Let us all go on about our business, baby. Have the most amazing night, honey, and tomorrow have a good day. But even if we can’t have a good one, don’t you dare go messin’ up nobody else’s.”
