Was ‘Days of Our Lives’ Star Melissa Reeves Fired for “Liking” Anti-BLM Tweets?
Melissa recently came under fire for “liking” certain social media posts online. As the controversy started gaining momentum, several outlets reported that Melissa Reeves was fired from Days of Our Lives — but was she really?
The controversy can be traced back to June when right-wing commentator Candace Owens made a statement questioning what happens to funds that are donated to Black Lives Matter. “According to its website Black Lives Matter, Inc is NOT a charity,” she wrote on Twitter. “Can anyone tell me then where the hundreds of millions BLM has raised goes?”
Owens shared her statements on Instagram as well, which is where Melissa apparently came across them. Screenshots shared by Twitter user @mgmendacious appear to show that Melissa “liked” the posts questioning the validity of the Black Lives Matter movement using her verified account. It probably won’t surprise anyone to learn that those “likes” caused quite the stir online.
I’m absolutely disgusted and sick right now and I am no longer in any denial about how @missyreeves4 feels. Take a look at a couple of disgusting and racist Instagram posts she liked. @carlivatiron @greg_meng @billymflynn @linseygodfrey @PaulTelfer #Days pic.twitter.com/KbnrnLYDY2

Days of Our Lives fans quickly started weighing in on Melissa’s actions, with some calling for her to be fired from the show. “So maybe it’s time for @nbcdays to fire Melissa Reeves again,” one fan wrote. “You replaced her once, you can do it again. Just find someone who is not a racist. I actually liked Stephanie Cameron. We tolerated Melissa for years. Enough is enough.” – Source
