Ceaser Emanuel is looking slimmer than ever.
The “Black Ink Crew” star took to Instagram on July 12 and posted a series of snaps that showed off his slimmer physique. He wore a white T-shirt, pair of khakis and a black face mask while posing with a glass of Hennessy in his hand. Emanuel tagged his location as Orlando, Florida, and struck several poses for the ‘Gram.
“I guess this is the new NORMAL but how am I going to drink my HENNY 😂😂 #ceaserblackink,” the New York native wrote.
Over 41,000 fans pressed the like button on his photo and raved over his apparent weight loss.
“Looking good & slim Cease. I like this weight on you boss man,” one fan wrote. A second person added, “Wow you lost so much weight. Looks good on you. I really need to look into this keto thing lol.”
One Instagram user said Emanuel was “flexin for the gram,” while another one commented, “Omg you look great didn’t know you was losing weight 😍 Bro is on his grown man s–t. Looking great @ceaserblackink.”
Someone else remarked, “Damn dropped that weight yooo good sh– Ceez you looking like a rich n–ga yoo.”
Although fans raved over Emanuel’s latest pics, his last photo-op didn’t go over too well.
Many fans slammed the “Black Ink” shop owner for using his platform to promote himself instead of the ongoing issues within the Black community. His May 31 post came on the heels of George Floyd‘s death, an unarmed Black man who died after an officer penned him down with his knee. One Instagram user accused Emanuel of being “selfish” for not speaking on police brutality in America.
As of late, Emanuel has seemed extremely focused on his businesses. He’s preparing to launch a new Black Ink tattoo shop in Philadelphia, Penn. This will add to his locations in New York, where he has two shops, and others — one each — in Atlanta, New Orleans, Orlando and Indianapolis.
