The writer noted that he’s used to receiving mean comments as he’s got vitiligo, a skin pigment condition that impacts pores and skin. “I am made fun of all of my entire life for having vitiligo,” David wrote. “These spots have made me strong. If it certainly makes you feel much better to lash out at something, Perhaps it’s much better than a puppy. I could go on it.”

Kelli, meanwhile, hasn’t publicly addressed David’s comments.

In her post announcing her departure, Kelli said she was looking towards future projects, writing, “I’m so excited to take everything I’ve learned in my own time on SVU and put them toward everything that’s close to come.”
