Sofia Richie calls out the racists

Sofia Richie has only been in the spotlight for a short amount of time, but she’s already proving to be quite the sass kween who won’t take crap from anybody.

In a new interview with Complex, the 18-year-old revealed that she has to deal with racist comments like, all the damn time in LA, but she’s quick to put the ignorant people in their place.

“I’m very light, so some people don’t really know that I’m black,” she confessed. “I’ve been in situations where people will say something kind of racist and I’ll step in and they’ll be like, ‘Oh, well, you’re light,’" she says, her eyes flashing. “That still doesn’t cut it, buddy. It’s 2016—you better get your sh-t together before you get slapped out here."

You tell ‘em, Sof!

JB's ex bae went on to talk about her newfound fame and how she’s dealing with it all.

“Sometimes you just want to walk out of your house and look ugly and get a coffee and wear your sweatpants all day,” she says. “Honestly, I might’ve thrown [my outfit] together in 30 seconds. I might’ve slept in that. And sh—t, someone’s going to photograph me, and everyone’s going to say I’m a mess or I look depressed, when really I’m just not wearing mascara.”

Dunno about you guys, but this interview made us love Miss Richie a whole lot more. Anti-racism and totally cool with chilled, sweatpants days? Yep, she’s defs BFF-worthy!
