The deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Elijah McClain, and many more have sparked many celebrities to use their platforms to elevate their voices on social issues, and “Love & Hip Hop New York” reality couple Yandy Smith-Harris and Mendeecees Harris are no exception.
The pro-Black couple let it be known on July Fourth that they were not celebrating the holiday but instead were expressing how proud they are to be Black.
“What Amirikkka fears most @mendeecees …Yup we blackity black black On this Not my Independence Day!” Yandy captioned the photo.
Mendeecees wore a white “Retired Hot Boy” T-shirt, red hat, ripped jeans, and a gold watch. Smith, who has been advocating for justice for Black lives, rocked the same theme on her T-shirt — “Retired Hot Girl” — distressed jeans, and gold jewelry.
Fans gushed over the married couple’s matching attire and, of course, Smith’s caption.
“Sis holding a Black Man down!!!! She fight for us!!! Better put some respect on her name period !!!!”
“Y’all been together for so long that y’all looking alike @YandySmith ✊🏾.”
“I love you two together. Stay together and love each other!”
“So happy that he’s home now. Love yall ❤️.”
“Such a beautiful couple 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥, Black Love ❤️.”
Along with compliments and praise for being a happy Black couple, one fan suggested that the pair make one more child together.
“One more baby 💜💜💜. Y’all make cute kids.”
Yandy’s social media following already beat the fan to the punch, for many are speculating that the 38-year-old could be expecting after she graced Instagram timelines with a short red dress with peplum sleeves, and black heels on June 26.
“Sky’s (not) the limit. Limits don’t exist when Gods involved,” Yandy wrote.
“You got this sis Keep killing it and shocking the world. Bro, they might not believe you now, but trust YOU GONNA MAKE them believe. Stay 10 toes down and keep pushing. You’re stronger than they think. 💕,” a fan replied.
Fans believed that the YELLE Skin Care owner was touching a pregnant belly, but neither she nor her husband has announced that they’re expecting another child together.
Yandy and Mendeecees share two children, daughter Skylar, 5, and a 7-year-old son named Omere.
She is also the foster mother to 18-year-old Infinity Gilyard. Harris is the father to two more sons from previous relationships, 8-year-old Aasim Harris and 14-year-old Mendeecees Harris Jr.
