K. Michelle is getting called out for a recent Instagram post several deem hypocritical.
The “Love and Hip Hop” star on Saturday, Feb. 17 posted a meme wondering why women of the current generation were “so proud to be hoes, side bitches, cheaters, prostitutes, strippers [and] thots.”
“Real s—,” the singer captioned the post. “It’s mind-blowing.”
While many of her fans backed K. Michelle up in the comments, others online reminded her of her own past as a stripper, which the singer discussed in a 2014 interview.
“I used to be [and exotic] dancer and it’s nothing I’m ashamed of,” she told Hip Hollywood. “It’s part of me.”
The apparent 180 was also a hot topic of discussion on a popular forum.
“I don’t understand how you could down being a stripper, when you were stripper [it] was helping you to pay your bills,” one user wrote. “The biggest irony of all that is a lot of her friends have been all of those things, I can’t stand when women do this.”
They also chimed in on her relationship with actor Idris Elba, which ended in 2014 after eight months. Michelle explained on “The Wendy Wiliams Show” that year that she was a “side chick” to Elba, who had recently welcomed a newborn.
“When I met him, I did find out that he had a woman,” she said. “But I did not know they still had that situation. So I kind of looked up and saw that I was the side chick.”
“For someone who has built their entire look on strippers, was a side for Idris Elba and has done … ‘hoe s—-,’ it’s just funny how queen pick me wants to chat rubbish now,” a forum user said.
