BLM Advocate Charged With Murdering White 3-Year-Old After Slamming 'White Privilege'
Black Lives Matter advocate arrested for child abuse murder of young foster child
A woman has been charged with murdering a white 3-year-old child, shortly after she was advocating for Black Lives Matter and slamming "white privilege" on social media.
29-year-old Ariel Robinson of South Carolina was arrested with her husband, Jerry Robinson, over the death of their three-year-old foster daughter.
Ariel Robinson was a local celebrity after winning Season 20 of Food Network's "Worst Cooks in America."
The Robinsons were taken into custody on Tuesday by officers with the Simpsonville Police Department and the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division.
Cops responded to a call about an unresponsive child at their Sellwood Circle home around 2.25 pm on January 14, according to a press release.
The child, identified by the Greenville County Coroner's Office as Victoria Rose Smith, 3, was transported to an area hospital where she died.
The disturbing story unfolded in Simpsonville, South Carolina.
Police allege that Ariel Robinson and her 34-year-old husband Jerry inflicted a "series of blunt force injuries" on their adopted child Victoria.
The parents called 911 on Jan. 15 to report that the child was unresponsive.
When medical professionals arrived, they immediately suspected child abuse, according to the heavily redacted police report.
Smith was taken to a hospital where she was pronounced dead, WYFF-TV reported.
The two were charged with homicide by child abuse, the TV station reported.
Ariel Robinson is best known for winning Season 20 of the Food Network show, "Worst Cooks in America" in August 2020.
The network deleted the season where she won after she was charged with the murder of her adopted child.
She was also a local comedian and aspiring television personality who posted a large amount of content on social media to seek a following.
Among those posts were entries decrying "white privilege" while talking about her three adopted children, all of whom were white.
She also advocated for the radical-left Black Lives Matter organization.
"In my house, my black children get treated the same as my white children, and my white children get treated the same as my black children," she tweeted on January 6.
"It's a shame that when they go out into the real world, that won't be the case," she posted, adding hashtags for "white privilege" and "Black Lives Matter."
In my house, my black children get treated the same as my white children, and my white children get treated the same as my black children. It’s a shame that when they go out into the real world, that won’t be the case. #whiteprivilege #BlackLivesMatter— Ari- People Lover 💗🌍🥰✊🏿✊🏾✊🏽✊🏻✊ (@arifunnycomedy) January 6, 2021
Tiffany Huggins and her husband Cameron spoke to WYFF-TV about Victoria, who had been their foster child for 10 months before being adopted by Robinson.
"She had the best personality, and I'm not just saying that because I was her momma, but, she was just our light," said a clearly emotional Tiffany Huggins.
