Tokie recently joined the group after Teddy Ruks fired the shop’s receptionist Jadah Blue. Tokie replaced Blue, but not everyone is too happy about her presence including co-star Donna Lombardi who she’s came to blows with. However, Lombardi feels the new hire is overly animated and a liability.
During last week’s episode of “Black Ink”, Tokie had a complete meltdown. The receptionist was on a group retreat with her co-stars in New Jersey when she claimed to have received a phone call from a person who sexually abused her. Moments later she completely spazzed out and went ballistic to the point that security had to escort her off of the premises. The group was completely confused as to what caused her erratic behavior.
Tokie later explained to her cast-mates that her abusers phone call triggered her explosive behavior during their bonding retreat.
“I’ve been sexually abused and it was just a really really bad situation but that day I freaked out was because he called out of the blue and I just I flipped out. I Blacked out,” she exclaimed. “My brain went into survival mode and I just couldn’t snap out of it.”
However, Lombardi wasn’t really buying Tokie’s story and believed the receptionist was putting on a show for the cameras. “Black Ink” fans and viewers seemed to agree with Lombardi and questioned somethings about Tokie’s abuse story they felt that didn’t make sense.
“Im sorry but if I’ve been through a traumatic experience like tokie saying she has whyyyyy TF her attacker got her number make me understand 🙄.”
“Give her da boot! She sounds like she made that up for recognition please ✋🏾.”
“Why Tokie ain’t at therapy and on a TV show 🙄?”
“Some thing bout Tokie aint right. If I was abused I’m changing my number or download a block app. Why this person still texting you.”
“Oh my god tokie is annoying like I’m not buying this whole sexual assault story.”
“I really really dislike her acting skills 💩.”
“That bitch tokie from #BlackInkCrew needs iyanla vanzant in her life lmaoo beloved.”
“Am I the only one who gets a bad vibe from tokie 🤔?”
“Sooooo…..you kept your abuser’s number & he clearly has hers!!!! What??? Why???? What’s the reason & purpose of that….oh, so y’all can keep in touch🤔?”
