“Always wanted to pick cotton. Lol,” the reality star, 32, captioned a photo of herself holding the newly harvested cotton flowers on her Instagram Story Wednesday.
The star also shared a video of her running into a field to the rather unusual dream, in the video she expressed concern that she would be shot for trespassing into the cotton field in Texas, where she was driving to ahead of a family Thanksgiving gathering.
Within an hour of sharing the cotton picking selfie, Wilkinson was slammed with negative comments from followers on social media accusing her of ignoring the horrific history of cotton fields being tended to by African American slaves.
The backlash prompted her to address the allegations in one of two explanatory videos on her Instagram Story.
“Wanting to pick some cotton and saying I’m going to get shot for trespassing is becoming news all of a sudden. Just having fun guys, no harm. Just wanted to pick some cotton. Just having some fun with my family,” Wilkinson clarified.
In follow-up footage, the mother of two said: “No joke I’ve always wanted to pick cotton, okay so I picked it. It felt good in my hands, it was all fuzzy and s—. I just didn’t want to get shot for trespassing.”
The ex-girlfriend of late Playboy founder Hugh Hefner also responded to followers on Twitter.
“Lol. I just wanted to pick cotton from a plant cuz I’ve always wondered how it really felt. Never in my life thought of color or race at the time,” Wilkinson wrote in one of four tweets.
"I was trespassing n ran up to grab some cotton. I am not racist. Was just having fun n wanted to feel n wondered how it felt,” she also said.
“I can’t believe I’m getting accused of being racist when I’m sitting here with my black father in law rt now baffled at the accusations,” Wilkinson tweeted, adding, “F— off to anyone who don’t know me n know what I’m about. Just cuz i picked some f—ing cotton. It’s a f—ing plant. Omg i can’t.”
