Debuting on the VH1 series in 2017, the Mexican-American tattoo artist has seemingly found her way in the middle of drama. If fans can remember, she received a mass of backlash for her constant use of the n-word last season, which she eventually apologized for after refusing to do so several times before. Although 9MAG owner Ryan Henry, put her on a leave of absence after the incident, he ultimately extended an olive branch to her to come back to the shop, but she disdainfully declined, saying she quit.
She however fought for her spot back at 9MAG, getting rehired by boss-man Ryan Henry and apparently has still managed to get into explosive altercations, especially with her arch nemesis Charmaine Walker.
Already getting into multiple fights with Walker earlier this season, Barrios seemingly decided to add one more on her list and instead got into a heated altercation with Walker’s fiance Neek Bey. During an event for Henry’s 9MAG brand in Miami, Florida shown amid Tuesday night’s episode, Barrios came seconds away from trying to put her hands on Walker’s fiance for an apparent social media spats that happened between them off-air. She claimed the tech entrepreneur was talking trash about her on Instagram after her fight with Walker last season for constantly saying the n-word.
Barrios confronted Bey at the event, calling him a “b–ch” and walking towards him in a threatening manner, appearing as if she wanted to attack him. She was eventually escorted from the club by security before things took a turn for the worst.
“Black Ink Crew: Chicago” viewers felt Barrios was in the wrong for confronting Walker’s fiance in a combative manner and demanded she be given the boot due to her constant explosive outbursts.
“WHY IS LILY STILL AROUND???????? 🤷🏽♂️🤷🏽♂️ all she ever does is fight and stir up s–t! I refuse to watch the show with her still around kick her off already!”
“Lily is toxic af I can’t believe Ryan hired her back. Smh I really hope she isn’t on here next season cuz I cant stand her ass.”
“Lily is really just a problematic person overall Neek didn’t even say nothin to her…she’s so full of drama. She needs to be off the show and on somebody’s couch.”
“Sorry not sorry-I’m sick of Lily’s angry ass 😡!!!! She stays on 12 for no damn reason!!!! Always jumping in somebody’s face, always mad. I’m sorry I’m not watching anymore she gotta go!!!”
