Former “Basketball Wives” reality star Tami Roman is one of many celebrities using their platforms to speak out against racial injustice in the wake of the death of Minneapolis man George Floyd at the hands of police.
The 50-year-old took to her Instagram a day ago to advocate for the Phenomenal group, a “female-powered lifestyle brand that brings awareness to social causes.”
Roman sported the “Phenomenally Black” tee and captioned her message by writing, “Millions of protesters across the country are speaking out against anti-black racism and police violence. We are thankful, yet we still have a lot of work to do, and we can’t let up.”
“So please continue to help fighting for our Phenomenally Black community until there’s full accountability. All proceeds from this @phenomenal tee benefit @blackfutureslab, which is working to build Black political power. Go get yours at @phenomenal and support the movement 💯💋🙏🏽 #PhenomenallyBlack,” Roman concluded.
While Roman garnered over 16,000 likes on her powerful post, it was the mother of two’s flawless beauty that left fans swooning.
Fans couldn’t resist her beauty and complimented the actress and author on her look.
“Phenomenally beautiful ❤️❤️❤️.”
“Daaaamn @TamiRoman you out here gettin yo Benjamin Buttons life!!! #Gorgeous #BlackBeauty #MelaninPoppin 🎊🎊😍.”
“YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL 😍.”
“I almost didn’t recognize you!! 🔥🔥🔥.”
“Aging Backwards 🥰 .”
“Yes, you are✊🏽💪🏽❤.”
“Damn Tami Looks so much pretty and healthier now that she’s solo for BBWLA God Bless You Girl Amen 🙏🏽🔥🔥😍👸🏽.”
Roman’s compliments have come a long way since she had fans concerned about her weight loss in 2018.
“Dear collarbone, long time no see. Glad to have you back in my life 😂😂😂😂🤷🏽♀️ only @styledbyudi will get this #MyG,” she captioned the July 12, 2018 photo.
While she mostly received compliments, some of Roman’s fans were visibly concerned about her slim-down in the comments section.
“My Gawd, she is sick for real 😢.”
“@TamiRoman now your weight loss is beginning to appear unhealthy. Happened to me too. Ensure for a week will get you right #trust me.”
“Ummmm… I don’t follow regularly, and I’m not on IG a lot, but when this picture came up, I was shocked. She looks emaciated. I understand the health issue, but I have questions?!?”
Due to all the criticism, even from former “BBW” reality co-star Evelyn Lozada, Roman opened up about her new look in a June 2018 post, writing, “I didn’t lose weight, I lost my willingness to die. DIABETES IS NO JOKE!”
“I detox, suppress my appetite, and make better food choices. So enjoy yourself laughing, leaving negative comments & calling me a ‘crackhead’… but I have two beautiful daughters, and I’m gon’ live for them by ANY means necessary,” Roman concluded.
Despite criticism or concerns, Roman seems content with her weight loss journey and her new look.
