Ashley Darby is shutting down claims that she is a “colorist” after her explosive feud with “Real Housewives of Potomac” co-star Candiace Dillard on Sunday’s episode.

“So, I really hate that I have to say anything about this and that I have to address this, but it seems to have just gotten like way out of control,” she said on Instagram Stories Monday.

“First and foremost, I am not a colorist. I know everyone wants to deem me that. They want to make all these accusations about me because of my own skin tone, but I don’t claim that because that’s not me.”

Darby, 34, noted that she has had disagreements with several other castmates — including Robyn Dixon and Gizelle Bryant — and has not taken “the hue” of anyone’s skin color into consideration.

“I always start at a hundred with people until you give me a reason to take it down,” she continued.

“That is all that has transpired. I still care about the women on this show and I hope that everyone — including them — knows that nothing that I will ever feel about you is because of your color of your skin.”

After Dillard and Darby got into a heated argument on “RHOP,” fans claimed the latter picked on her castmate because of her skin color.

After the episode aired, viewers slammed Darby on social media for her actions.

One fan tweeted, “@_AshleyDarby isn’t colorist the same way racists aren’t racist. Your beef with your skin twins end. Your beef with the dark skinned women go on forever.”

A second chimed in and said, “Ashley Darby is a colorist because she didn’t give Wendy the same opportunity for friendship she did for the bandits even when they had issues. Ashley Darby would NEVER hide anyone’s room info on a trip but she did to Candiace. Ashley literally treats them differently!!”
