‘The Worst Clap Back of All Time’: Fans React After Cyn Santana Responds to Backlash Over Her Colorful VMAs Look

“Love & Hip Hop: New York” star Cyn Santana hit the red carpet at the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night, Aug. 28. The annual celebration was held at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.

Santana confidently hit the red carpet in a long red-orange leather coat and with a dress that featured the body of a woman in a matching bikini. The native New Yorker completed her look with black leather open-toe thigh-high boots and orange highlights in the front of her hair.

Fans had a lot to say about the Latin singer’s look, including dozens who asked, “Who invited Cyn?”

“What in the rainbow is going on here?….” wrote one person, while another said, “Cyn…sis this ain’t it.” Meanwhile, a third social media user wrote, “Cyn could’ve done better. She’s to pretty for that.”

Some began digging into where Santana bought her outfit. Some responded with fashion brands such as Fashion Nova, but nearly a dozen said, “It’s giving Shein.”

One individual mentioned Papasitos, a popular restaurant on Dyckman Street, near where Santana grew up in the Bronx, “It’s giving I’m going to Papsitos in Dyckman & it might rain. I still love her tho.”

Santana responded to the negative comments in a video on her Instagram story later that night. “To those talking s—, I’m glad you got Wifi in your mama’s basement bitch,” she said before laughing hysterically.

Fans came at the reality star again in the comments again after her response video made its rounds on social media. Many felt it was lacking on the clapback and others advised her to find a stylist of her liking.

“The worse clap back of all time. Just go find a stylist sis.”

“Don’t be mad at the messenger. Focus on the message.”

“Sis hella turnt.”

“That’s the hurt laugh.”

“That dress was kinda cheap. Love u Cyn.”

A handful pointed out the “broke” concept Santana seemingly referred to by suggesting critics were using “Wifi in your mama’s basement” to watch the VMAs, while she attended the show in person.

“The “broke” rhetoric is getting old,” said one person. “I’m sure she styled herself ’cause that mess couldn’t have been on anyone’s budget.”

Another said, “The easiest thing for a ‘celebrity’ to say about somebody is they’re broke. It was a poor decision to wear what you wore. It happens, it’s okay…”
