It looks like Miss Kitty is putting her foot down as the fill-in boss for 2nd City Ink.
The “Black Ink Crew: Chicago” star was left in charge of managing the tattoo shop after owner Charmaine Walker took maternity leave. As the fill-in manager and brand ambassador, Kitty learned quickly that she had to be stern with the employees there.
On the July 13 episode, Kitty unleashed on 2nd City Ink’s new employee and tattoo artist Star. The newcomer was extremely late on her second day of work, and Kitty wasn’t having it. She scolded Star for not calling her ahead of time to let her know she would be tardy. She also passed Star’s scheduled appointment to another tattoo artist.
“I need to feed my kids I cannot lose this money,” yelled Star.
“I understand that s–t happens, but that doesn’t prevent you from calling me and letting me know that you’re gonna be late,” Kitty said in her confessional. “I mean now that I’m in charge I can’t just seem like I’m some type of pushover.”
The “Black Ink Crew” boss lady further told Star, “I promised Charmaine that I would take care of everything while she’s gone. I cannot f–k it up for her while she’s on maternity leave. That’ll be one more thing she gotta worry about. So get your act together.”
Several viewers applauded Miss Kitty for chastising Star for her tardiness.
“That’s a firing offense lol. 2 days and u late both days lol. This gotta be for tv. Nah fam Kitty told her right.”
“Now that’s a real boss! Kat was right 🤷🏽♀️ she cant let them employees run over her. So she had to make a boss decision. Star you already know NO CALL NO SHOW your fired😬 you lucky you still have a job”
Others disagreed with how Kitty handled the new employee.
“Kittty kitty cat girl you are doing too damn much. Now that I’m in charge lol”
“How bout you should have had that conversation in the office. Thats tacky an infront of clients.”
