In the Instagram upload shared on Feb. 19, Ross showcased her family’s throwback images, including her mother, legendary singer Diana Ross, her siblings, and other extended relatives.
Things took an unexpected turn as fans scrolled to the fourth slide and viewed a photo of Ross, who appeared to be lying on an exam chair while visiting the dentist’s office. Alongside the post, the “black-ish” star expressed the reason behind her upload was to give fans a closer look at where she came from.
Ross wrote, “Some of the LEGACY that I come from.” As Ross’ followers began to view her post, many bypassed the shared intimate moments and immediately zoomed in on the dentist pic. While several individuals tried to figure out if Ross meant to include the photo, one Instagram user expressed that the actress should address the situation.
“Uhh one is not like the others lol.”
“Did you mean to include the dentist pic?”
“How does the dentist photo fit in???”
“I went from ‘look at her beautiful legacy’ to ‘what the?’ “
“I need her to address the dentist pic.”
Among the previous remarks regrading Ross’ dentist photo, others complimented the star on her sense of humor. One wrote, “The dentist pic in the middle just lol I love @traceeellisross with her randomness.” Another said, “Typical Tracee with the goofy pic. Don’t ever change.”
A third social media user wrote, “Omg the dentist one you snuck that in huh!! I love your spirit.”
This post isn’t the star’s first tribute to her family. Last March, during International Women’s Day, Ross shared a stream of images of the women she called her home and her foundation. The list included her mom, Diana Ross, and her sisters, Chudney and Rhonda Ross.
Ross captioned the post, “The women i come from. My foundation. My home. #internationalwomensday.”
