Rapper Wale found himself in hot water on Instagram this week after he posted and commented on a meme that’s been circulating on social media for a few weeks now. The meme features a black woman with what appears to be a surgically enhanced behind being held up by a chain. Wale has since deleted the original post from his Instagram account, but we were able to grab a screen shot from The Shade Room.
Wale may have thought that he was doing black women a favor by apologizing to black women for making them feel as if they needed to ruin their bodies to please black men. Most responded positively, applauding him for speaking up and acknowledging that black women don’t need to manipulate their bodies in order to feel accepted. However, some of his followers weren’t here for Wale’s “Dear Black Women” speech. Apparently, some of his followers are upset that he only geared his message to black women, when there are a slew of non‐black women plumping up every thing they can.
Butt enhancements used to be the elephant in the room, more and more women are speaking about and even against them. Most recently, and quite surprisingly, songtress K Michelle spoke about removing her butt enhancements to return to her “normal shape.”
Ladies, what are your thoughts?
