Some of y’all are way too entitled to these celebrities, like why are you patrolling this woman’s weight?
Rapper Latto has been in the game since a teenager. Since winning season one of The Rap Game series created by hip-hop producer Jermaine Dupri, the 23-year-old has been on a mission to secure her spot in the industry. In recent years, she’s collaborated with names like Lil Wayne Childish Gambino and even the legendary Mariah Carey for the release of her sophmore album ‘777.’
Despite her obvious talent and hunger for success, the artist finds herself constantly being torn down based on her appearance. In a tweet sent out today, she expressed how much of a toll being told she is gaining weight has on her feelings. She wrote, “I’m getting off birth control lol I’m sick of y’all telling me I’m gaining weight that shit hurt my feelings fr so don’t say nun when I.. nvm.”
The ‘never mind’ she’s referring to is her getting pregnant as a result of getting off her meds– apparently the risk is worth taking if it gets her to slim down. Fans took to her replies to assure the “Big Energy” rapper that she was tripping and her body looks amazing.
What could have sparked her to share the tweet was a direct message on Instagram from a “fan” advising Latto to undergo surgery to keep her figure. She wrote, “Get lipo in your arms & back your gonna look too wide!” Going further, she claimed the rapper looked better slim thick.
Latto posted the messages to her story and followed up by saying, “I thought I was losing weight looking good… Ian gone lie sis u struck a nerve cause I’m on day 2 of my no food just juice cleanse right now.”
This wouldn’t be the first time the artist has had to defend her looks against critics. Back in March, after a video of her and her friends playing around in the studio went viral, many hecklers poked fun at Latto’s body. Shown from her side profile, social media users claimed her backside was shaped oddly. Take a look at Latto’s rant below and let us know what you think. One day we’ll have a conversation on fans and boundaries with these artists.
