“Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide” star Lindsey Shaw is getting dragged for seemingly mocking Black creators on TikTok … so she’s tearfully quitting social media altogether.
Lindsey was in full breakdown mode — tears streaming down her face — as she said the flood of hateful comments in her inbox, reacting to a recent TikTok, was too much to handle.

The outrage is over her clip, where she questions — if not outright mocks — a new dance trend on the app, and she says a lot of folks are taking issue with the fact she’s making fun of Black dancers.
In her TikTok, Lindsey asks … “Hey, are we okay, what the f*** is this?!?” … then mimicks the dance.
Lindsey says her critique wasn’t about race … it was simply her playing into the Millennial versus Gen Z trends. Still, she apologizes for offending people, and says she wasn’t intending to belittle anyone.
It sure looks like the backlash is getting to her, and she says those aren’t crocodile tears.
