Tamar Braxton just wanted to offer up a congratulatory message to her “Redemption of a Dogg” stage play co-star, Snoop Dogg. But the star was caught in a firestorm after fans spammed her comments with ridicule.
The singer applauded Snoop for getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Monday, Nov. 19.
“So happy for my brother twin @snoopdogg & @bosslady_ent look at GOD!!! #hollywoodwalkoffame🙏🏽 congratulations 🎈🍾🎉 love y’all 💕 i know u are literally on a High🚬😩😂😂😂😂😂,” Braxton wrote on Instagram Nov. 20.
Braxton starred in Snoop’s semi-autobiographical play as his angel guide during a fall tour. But reports emerged that she abruptly left the show during a Washington, D.C., matinee when her meal failed to arrive backstage. As a result, the cast had to replace her with another member on stage while LeToya Luckett sang her song offstage.
“Please, it’s important that we pray for her, this is a very vulnerable time so please just pray for her. She’s sorry she couldn’t be here for this curtain call, but she did get a chance to be here for you and she did the best she could,” writer/director Je’Caryous Johnson explained to the crowd post-show.
She came back to resume her role for the 7 p.m. show in the nation’s capital and completed her stint on the play without incident last weekend.
The slip-up, however, left fans with a bad taste in their mouths and they aired out their issues in the comments of Braxton’s tribute to Snoop.
“So why you clown like that at that show then??! #sincethatsyobrother 🤔 😯”
“Nasty ass fake diva attitude you try having on set.”
“So you throw kiddy temper tantrums jeopardizing your ‘brother’s’ show all over some food being delivered.”
“@tamarbraxton why do you act out everywhere you go and put on a show and be such the biggest drama queen… Do you think that people are going to continue to want to work with you when you act like a complete ass?”
“Sis did you really try to quit the show because your food didn’t come on time or something 😒”
