Fans Clown Draya Michele for Reportedly Losing Savage Fenty Deal With Rihanna After Joke About Megan Thee Stallion’s Shooting Incident
Megan Thee Stallion is thanking fans for their support following her shooting incident and slamming others for making jokes. 50 Cent has apologized for joking about the matter but many are still furious with Draya Michele for her comments. Michele’s joke may have cost her to lose her gig as an ambassador for Rihanna’s Savage Fenty line. Rihanna publicly endured her own domestic violence incident.
Draya Michele comments on Megan Thee Stallion and Tory Lanez; Stallion responds
As the world waited for Stallion to confirm what led to the shooting, speculation ran wild. Michele spoke of the reported relationship between Stallion and Lanez during an interview, likening their romance to another Hollywood couple known for wild moments.
“I predict that they had some sort of Bobby and Whitney love that drove them down this type of road. I’m here for it. I like that. I want you to like me so much you shoot me in the foot too,” Michele joked.
The backlash against Michele was swift and she offered an apology and explanation on her Twitter account almost immediately.
“I truly don’t glorify domestic violence…I was trying to say just love me deeply. But while trying to be funny, I offended many, including meg. And I’m sorry,” she wrote.
Michele’s apology came too late as Stallion is offended by her joke.
“Dumb b***h that s**t ain’t fucking funny who tf jokes about getting shot by a n***a,” Stallion asked on Twitter.
Draya Michele allegedly dropped by Rihanna’s Savage Fenty; fans respond on social media
Social media users’ comments about Michele didn’t stop. She posted a lengthier message to her Instagram story captured by The Neighborhood Talk after Stallion’s note.
Michele has been an ambassador of Rihanna’s lingerie line, Savage Fenty, and has promoted the brand on social media. Fenty responded to Michele’s comments.
We’ve been made aware of this, thank you,” they replied.
Reports are circulating that Michele no longer works as an ambassador. Rihanna has publicly dealt with domestic violence in her previous relationship with Chris Brown.
“Draya being cut from Savage x Fenty makes sense seeing how her “joke” not only makes a mockery of Meg’s experience, it makes a mockery f [sic] other women’s experiences too. Like Rihanna’s. Who owns the brand,” one commented on Twitter.
“Rihanna cancelling Draya’s Savage x Fenty deal for making fun of Megan is the direct action I love to see,” another chimed in.
Interestingly, Stallion is also a Fenty ambassador. Michele and Stallion have shared photos together on their social media pages.
Fenty posted a photo of Stallion moments after it was reported that Michele was dropped. Fans are laughing at the timing.
“Draya lost her Fenty endorsement and they posted Meg less than 24 hours later. I know she sick,” one wrote on Twitter.
Michele has not confirmed whether or not she no longer works with Fenty.
