Perri “Pebbles” Reid is obviously still angry with the surviving members of TLC and when she saw the way she was depicted in their biopic, “CrazySexyCool,” she went on a short Twitter rant and promised to file a lawsuit. Meanwhile, the Twitterverse has clearly picked sides and Pebbles is going to have a hard time finding anyone to support her with this legal battle.
TLC’s biopic was all the Twitterverse talked about as the VH1 movie aired Monday night.
Anyone who saw the film could already tell that Pebbles wasn’t going to be very happy about her portrayal, although both Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas believe her character depiction was accurate.
Back in the ’90s when TLC went platinum after selling 23 million copies of “CrazySexyCool” worldwide, they should have been rolling in cash and living lavishly. Instead, they were filing for bankruptcy and they claimed that Pebbles was the reason for the financial strife.
“I am in shock listening to all this mess and lies on this radio interview,” Pebbles tweeted after the two surviving members of TLC sat down for a radio interview with “The Breakfast Club.” “This is madness!! It’s SO hard to believe this! DO NOT believe.”
She immediately began making promises that she would take legal action, which has everyone expecting a defamation of character lawsuit will surface soon.
The good news is Twitter was there to make sure that there was humor mixed in with the shade-throwing madness.
After seeing how Pebbles’ character bossed the girls around in the movie, Twitter users warmed up their keyboards and went in.
“Pebbles got this TLC biopic looking like ’12 years a slave,’ ” one tweet read.
Another user wrote: “Pebbles contracts = Sallie Mae.”
Getting recommendations just for you...
Unfortunately for Pebbles that was just the beginning of the social media roasting.
“Why you got TLC in your bio like you aint pay them in trident layers??? @pebbles2day,” user @Muse_Rebel tweeted directly to Pebbles.
Other users commented on just how heartless Pebbles appeared to be.
“U charged Lisa for passin away or naw? @pebbles2day,” user @SpikeReed wrote.
“Pebbles when TLC asked to see their contracts,” one user wrote before inserting a picture of a young man awkwardly looking away from the camera as if he has no answer.
Pebbles then responded with a tweet of her own in which she referenced Proverbs.
“He who states his case first seems right, until his rival comes and cross-examines him,” she tweeted.
With threats by Pebbles to take legal action we certainly haven’t seen the last of this feud – or the Twitter jokes to go along with it.
