Tameka Empson who plays Kim Fox in Eastenders refused to attend the Inside Soap Awards on Monday. Tameka was aware that she had won the award for Funniest Female but did not attend the event due to the venue it was held at. Inside Soap Awards took place in controversial club DSTRKT. The club has been embroiled in a racism row for turning away black women who were deemed “too dark” and “too overweight”. At iAm we applaud Tameka for taking a stand and showing solidarity with those who been turned away.
