'American Vandal' Star Camille Hyde Has Experienced Blackface On Set


Camille Hyde says she's seen blackface used on the set of some productions ... and it makes people uncomfortable.

We got the "American Vandal" star Wednesday in L.A.'s Larchmont Village neighborhood where we asked for her thoughts on a young actor stand-in being darkened to match the complexion of Keith L. Williams in "Good Boys"... which upset some members of the crew.

Camille says the practice of using makeup to make a stand-in match the actor's skin color isn't totally unheard of -- in fact, she tells us she's seen it done herself. 

As for how it was handled ... Camille says the issue was brought up then -- much like it's being brought up now -- and believes speaking your truth is the best way to address it.

Like they say -- cooler heads ...
