Brielle Biermann is catching heat following a photo that made the rounds where she appears several shades darker. The 22-year-old “Don’t Be Tardy” star raised eyebrows when she showed herself on the beach tanning with many fans accusing her of “blackfishing.” The term blackfishing refers to a person who alters their appearance in order to present themselves as black. Brielle Biermann shocked her followers when she uploaded a photo showcasing her nearly naked body catching what many claim are unnecessary UV rays.
In the photo, Kim Zolciak‘s oldest daughter is seen laying on her stomach on a white and blue polka dot blanket while sunning her buns. Fans were not impressed with the suntanning snap and immediately took to social media to put the young reality star on blast.
“lol brielle biermann tried it. she really tried it but the comments got so flooded so fast. like girl just embrace being white. i hate being the color of milk too but you don’t see me black fishing.” one fan tweeted out along with the photo.

“Bruh it’s not a tan if you’re another race. I’m tired of white people black fishing,” added another. “We need to talk about Brielle Biermann because…” commented a third. The blonde bombshell later appeared to respond to the backlash by sharing a childhood photo of herself where she looked almost equally as tan.
“Oh so what you’re trying to say is, you’ve ALWAYS been dark? Sis…,” one fan teased. “She’s trynna let y’all know she BEEN dark lol,” echoed another.

After catching backlash over her clap back, Brielle Biermann defended herself again. When a follower wrote, “You know she posted this to show how dark she was lol,” Brielle Biermann commented, “I actually was only going to keep it up until we sold out of our bikini 🙂 never did anything wrong. I can’t help how tan I get from laying out sun up to sun down at the beach everyday!”
She then took to Twitter to laugh off the haters. Declaring she’s logged off of Twitter, she made it clear that she has no time for trolls. “IM BACK BAYBEEE,” Brielle Biermann tweeted.
