17-year-old Bhad Bhabie has been getting backlash on social media after blackfishing in her pictures to make her look like she has a darker skin tone. She’s also been culturally appropriating black women for a while now with her hairstyles. In a recent Instagram Live session, she went on a rant about this and even brought Lil Kim’s name into it by saying she tries to look like white people.
Bhabie is also fed up of being accused of being racist. She also thought that when she was 13 and singing the n-word in songs, it was okay because she grew up in Florida and “we all said that s*it.”
“To see people wanna judge me off a picture, under a f*cking light, that made me look a little bit darker. Then try to slander my name and make me seem like a racist person. “I am not racist at all, and any fucking video of me saying the n-word, I was saying it in a fucking song, I was fucking thirteen, and where I grew up in Florida, we all said that shit.”
Bhabie also weirdly said how she “tries to act black” because she claimed that she grew up in the hood and it was a part of her environment like Tarzan. Yes, this sounds ridiculous and she deserves all the criticism that’s coming her way. She also took shots at Lil Kim by saying she’s made her looks to appeal to white people with her nose and foundation.
“Lil’ Kim wears a foundation – no disrespect to Lil Kim, I’m actually a fan of hers – but the girl wears a foundation that’s too light for her face. The girl went and got a nose job to have a smaller nose to be like white people. Y’all don’t see that? She literally got surgery to make herself a white person… and y’all don’t say a goddamn word about her. But I put on a foundation that makes me look tan,” she said about Kim.”
Kim ended up peeping the comments Bhabie made and then took to her Instagram Stories to address it. She’s surprised that she’s been a target in this pandemic but when this ends, she’s ready to put an address down for Bhabie so they can handle this.
“That Lil Kim hate different,” said Kim. “How tf I become a target in the middle of a pandemic? There’s more important things going on in the world but you better believe when this is all over ima put a date and address on it and seal it with a kiss.”
Bhabie has been using black culture to gain clout and has been extremely disrespectful towards black women. She never speaks on issues such as racism or police brutality and has no business being famous. It’s sad that she got popularity after disrespecting her mother on Dr. Phil’s show in 2017.
