Draya Michele is busy exploring her “slim thick” body while half of social media deems her officially canceled. The 35-year-old reality star and Mint Swim founder now sees her ill-received joke about rapper Megan Thee Stallion costing her dearly – Draya has seemingly been dropped by Rihanna’s SavagexFenty line after suggesting that being shot in both feet was sexy.
If you aren’t up-to-date, the “Basketball Wives LA” alum shot up Twitter trends after appearing on the “Wine and Weed” podcast, where opening her fat mouth to joke about “Savage” rapper Megan being shot didn’t go down well.
Draya, known for her wit, aired her thoughts on 25-year-old Megan, who this month revealed she’d been shot in both feet – fans assume Canadian rapper Tory Lanez may have been behind it. And they want him deported.
“I predict that they had some sort of Bobby & Whitney love that drove them down this type of road,” adding: “I’m here for it. I like that. I want you to like me so much you shoot me in the foot too,” Draya said.
It wasn’t long before fellow SavagexFenty face Megan replied, tweeting: “Dumb b-tch that sh-t ain’t f-cking funny who tf jokes about getting shot by a n—-.”
Thursday brought a fresh Instagram update from Draya. The Fashion Nova partner was putting the focus back on her body as she flaunted her ripped frame and killer curves in matching spandex athleisurewear. Draya, whose newly-launched Oh Polly collab might be suffering as a result of her scandal, made no mention of the shooting joke, instead writing:
“Slim, thick, slim thick, slick !?”
Shortly before posting, however, Draya shared a message (seen below), seemingly hinting that she’s struggling and doing her best as a mom.
Draya didn’t take long to backtrack as her name exploded on Twitter following her seemingly-tasteless joke.
“I truly don’t glorify domestic violence… I was trying to say just love me deeply,” she said: “But while trying to be funny, I offended many, including meg. And I’m sorry.”
It’s set to hit Draya where it hurts, though. 32-year-old Rihanna, herself a victim of domestic violence and the big boss of all things Fenty, now sees her lingerie brand having removed Draya from its feed. Draya has also been unfollowed by SavagexFenty. More below.
As The Blast reported, Draya’s 8.1 million followers have been trashing her up the wazoo since the joke. “We ain’t forget sis” was the top comment to a recent update from the swimwear designer, although responses to today’s post were less slamming.
“Nahhhhh you THICK THICK ???” was one response. “Them thighs came out to play today sis,” another fan wrote.
Interestingly, support came in from another of SavagexFenty’s ambassadors. 38-year-old singer Christina Milian left a like. The “Dip It Low” face also fronts RiRi’s brand.
