The writer noted that he’s used to receiving mean comments as he has vitiligo, a skin pigment condition that impacts skin color. “I’ve been made fun of most of my life for having vitiligo,” David wrote. “These spots have made me strong. If it makes you feel better to lash out at something, I suppose it’s better than a puppy. I can take it.”
Kelli, meanwhile, hasn’t publicly addressed David’s comments.
In her post announcing her departure, Kelli said she was looking forward to future projects, writing, “I’m so excited to take all the things I have learned in my time on SVU and put them toward everything that’s next to come.”
