The tattoo artist ended up getting into a physical altercation with her co-star Krystal Kills during Wednesday night’s episode, and it was every bit of explosive.
The episode started off with the “Black Ink” crew doing some team-bonding exercises. Puma Robinson, the partial owner of the shop, felt the old and new employees should learn how to get along with each other. However, not everyone appeared to be in a friendly mood, including Lombardi herself. She seemed to have a problem with the newcomer London, who was hired as the shop’s events coordinator, saying that London comes off as “cocky.”
Amid their team-bonding session, the new events coordinator began talking, and Lombardi abruptly blurted out, “Why do she talk so much?” London brushed the tatto artist off and said she felt like she was in “a sorority.”
Lombardi added in her confessional, “There’s a way to come in as a new person and that’s humbly and respectfully. But I know her type, and she’s cocky.”
After the Ohio native and London exchanged words for a matter of minutes, the newest tattoo artist at the shop, Krystal Kills, jumped to the events coordinator’s defense, accusing Lombardi of trying to bully newcomers.
“Donna really thinks she can dominate us newbies into submission,” Kills said during her confessional. “I’m tired of dealing with her fifth grade bulls–t.”
After defending London, Kills walked over to Lombardi and her other co-stars, challenging them to a fight. After Kills’ asking multiple times, “Who wanna fight?” Lombardi jumped up and jawed at Kills almost nose-to-nose before slapping her. Their physical altercation was quickly broken up by security, who escorted Kills out of the shop.
“Black Ink Crew” fans claimed Kills was “doing the most” and deserved to get smacked in the face by Lombardi.
“Beat that b–ch ass Donna! She jumped up wit a lot of energy🤣🤣 Donna slapped the dog shyt out of her 😛”
“Well she did say who wanna fight 😂😂😂 cant get mad that she got popped. Pop off Donna 🙌🏽”
“Kystal looked for what she got 😂😂 London you next better leave my girl alone @donnadadondada. Donna BEEN had them hoes. Yall need to stop talking shit and learn how to fight 🗣🤷🏽♀️”
“Krystal ain’t want no smoke. Beat her dirty raggedy a– Donna. She ain’t want it”
Others viewers felt Lombardi was out of line, calling her a bully.
“Donny is a bully and think it is cute to be a big giant b–ch who likes to fight! 🤷🏽♀️ “
“Krystal was right…She’s tired of Donna always attacking new females… IDK why Ceas hired her back”
