Influencer Jordan Beckham comments on racial slurs in a YouTube video

A social media influencer went viral on TikTok after she allegedly forgot to edit out a racial slur in one of her YouTube videos.

The TikTok call was uploaded by user Angelika Oles (@angelikaoles), where she reveals that the TikTok influencer was Jordan Beckham (@jordanbeckham_). In TikTok, Oles explains how Beckham made a “massive oopsie” by forgetting to edit a YouTube video of Beckham saying a racial slur using the “hard N-word.”

The video in question was deleted, but it appears viewers managed to save it while it was active. Oles shares a screen capture of the YouTube clip posted to the @teatoktalk Instagram account. In the short clip, Beckham can be seen with some friends. The three laughed and although their voices were coherent, the N-word Beckham uttered was censored.

The video was viewed 2.2 million times as of Friday, as viewers were confused at how Beckham could use the N-word so easily.

“Why is this literally such a big problem? how why is everyone doing this? how hard is it to eliminate ONE word from your vocabulary,” asked one viewer.

“I don’t understand how people have this word in their vocabulary, it doesn’t even occur to me to use it ?? so sad,” wrote a second.

“Like I wouldn’t even say that word if it’s a song lyrics and I’m alone in my car, let alone ever say it out loud,” said a third.

According to other viewers, this isn’t the first time Beckham has said racial slurs.

“She’s been exposed for something like this before, too,” shared one person.

“She’s been exposed to it on a party bus before! It was like 2020,” said a second.

“She didn’t just say it once, she said it again,” commented a third.

At least one other TikTok influencer seems to confirm this. User Tara Lynn (@taraswrld) posted a video in 2021 saying the creators of content house Society Las Vegas are racist. She claims she and some of those creators, including Beckham, once shared a party bus.

Tara says how the members on the party bus spat out the N-word left and right and she couldn’t believe it.

“They all just spit it out like it’s nothing. And I sit back like nerves! The damn nerve! So my drunk ass got up and yelled in their faces,” she says. She claims “the blonde” claimed she had “black friends” so she’s “not racist.” Tara says this prompted her to keep telling her to “shut up.” Society Las Vegas members denied those claims, but the drama led to member Karina Prieto leaving, according to Dexerto.

As for Beckham, the backlash prompted her to post an apology video, which Oles shared a snippet of on TikTok. The clip was captured from Beckham’s Instagram Story, in which she claimed to “apologize from the bottom of my heart.” She apologized for the “pain and hurt she caused” for using an “offensive, hateful, ugly word.” She also apologized for “not being more educated.”

However, many TikTokers took her apology with a grain of salt, especially since she posted it on a platform that would disappear after 24 hours.

“I don’t understand why you aren’t informed enough about what that word means at your age in 2022. She obviously knew she didn’t care until others saw her for who she really was,” read a top comment on Oles’ Tick Tock.

“I don’t believe a single word,” wrote another.

One user wrote: “Not sorry for saying it, sorry for getting caught.”

Beckham rose to fame thanks to the popular lip syncing app Musical.ly. After gaining a large following, she moved to Instagram where she posted more lip syncing and fashion videos. She has over 723,000 Instagram followers, 3.9 million TikTok followers and 140,000 YouTube subscribers.

The Daily Dot contacted Oles via TikTok comment and Beckham and Tara via email.
