Tamar Braxton is currently recovering in a hospital after possibly trying to take her own life and one of her sisters is catching flak for self-promoting amid the scary incident. The 43-year-old star was rushed to the hospital on Thursday, July 16, and is currently “alert” and “responsive.” While her sister Toni Braxton was photographed entering the hospital’s emergency room along with her boyfriend, it’s unclear if any of the other sisters have gone to visit. Instead, one of them is taking to social media to post about her career status and fans aren’t having it.
Traci Braxton took to social media on Wednesday, July 22, days after the family broke their silence on Tamar’s hospitalization to post about her latest project. The 49-year-old proudly self-promoted “The Couch,” which is on BET Her TV, and talked about what a pleasure it was to ” show my talents as a [sic] actress.”
In all fairness, the show is about mental illness and family rallying together, something that Tamar Braxton’s loved ones know all too well, but fans didn’t care.
Sharing several photos from on the set, including a message from the director, Traci Braxton wrote, “I am truly thankful for the opportunity to show my talents as a actress while at the same time relaying a message thats most needed in the black family #mentalhealth.”
“Being there for others even when they weren’t able to be there for you is REAL!!!” she added before announcing the show will air later this week on July 25. While several followers praised the star for speaking out about mental health, others took this as an opportunity to question her headspace as her sister recovers in the hospital.
“Her sister just TRIED TO KILL HERSELF, and this is what shes posting,” one troll questioned before claiming Tamar Braxton’s alleged overdose was a “PUBLICITY STUNT.”
“So sad that girl went through all that trouble to get our attention,” the hater wrote. “CHECK YOUR SISTER ♥️.” While Traci Braxton has yet to address the negativity, fans wasted no time to defend her actions.
“Please stop. You don’t bring people down when they’re going through “it”. We do not know them personally. Which is how she should handle her sister’s situation,” a person shot back. Three of Tamar Braxton’s sisters have spoken out asking for prayers amid the star’s possible suicide attempt. Fans are still waiting for Toni Braxton to make a public statement.
