A new Fantasia Instagram beef went down the other day because people take their criticism a little too far. R&B singer Fantasia Barrino has had some recent success with her current album, however, she continues to have issues on the social media sites. In fact, Fantasia says she compares her experiences on social media to bullying, and although she’s learning to be stronger and not allow people’s opinions of her to get her down too much these days, she still has constant drama on her Instagram account. Fanny might be trying to be more positive in her own life, but too bad some of her own followers aren’t on the same path. The other day one of Fantasia’s followers decided to make obscene comments about her daughter Zion after the singer posted a photo of her new hairdo. While most of Fantasia’s fans dragged the woman for coming for a child, Fantasia did the unthinkable and posted a photo of the critic posing with her own daughter:

She writes in the caption:

@kimkae Is a Mother as Well as a Black Women. It Saddens me when a Beautiful Black Women with a Beautiful Black Young Baby comes on another Black Women page and Speaks Negative about her Beautiful Black Young Lady.. Let Me say this Mama if 1 person comes on this pic and comments negative about your Baby what would you do? How would you feel? Well let me tell you how I Feel (Anger, Rage and ready to Fight).

Im going to pretend you didn’t just GO INNN on my Baby Girl picture.. ill just Say God Bless You as A Mother and as A Black Sister.. From another Sister. Your Girl is Very Pretty

 

After Fantasia posted the photo and the message, the young woman promptly deleted her account.

Great job Fantasia.

  1. I never understood why people go after people’s kids! You have to be a very sick person to stoop that low.

  2. No bueno. You don’t go after kids. I’m glad Fanny checked this woman without stooping down to her level.

  3. What is wrong with people?! It’s like Twitter ad IG has people thinking they are so gangsta now. Great job Fantasia.

  4. Smh. Kudos to Fanny. She kept it classy and still made her look stupid as hell. You don’t talk about someone’s kids.

  5. Fanny is a good one because I would have called her all kinds of b’s and ho’s. That wouldn’t have been the best thing to do, but that’s what I would have done. LOL.

  6. YES Tasia!!!! Kill em with kindness these twitter gangsters are getting out of hand stop bringing people families into it. I applaud Tasia because if that was me I would be ready to snatch her wig.

  7. I don’t think I could have handled it as classy as Fanny did. People need their a-ses kicked over the way they act on the internet.

  8. People have lost their minds. Going after a child is never ok. And yet, she’s a mom herself. What a hypocrite.

  9. Wow. I have to applaud Fantasia for checking her in a way that didn’t make her look at ratchet as that woman is for talking slick about a kid. That had to be hard.

  10. I like the way Fantasia handled that, although taking the high road would have been the better response. On another note, she needs to return to school, because she writes at a third grade level.

    Fantasia’s incorrect grammar: “im a tell you…” (No apostrophe used in “I’m” and the verb “going” is unused)

    Fantasia’s incorrect grammar: “…a beautiful black women…” (as is common among poor speakers/writers, the plural “women” is used to refer to a single “woman”)

    Correct grammar: “I am going to tell you…” or “I’m going to tell you…”

    Correct grammar: “…a beautiful, black womAn…” (The “A” is capitalized for emphasis)

    Singular: “womAn”

    Plural (as in more than one): “womEn” (the “E” is capitalized for emphasis)

    It is embarrassing black people. You cannot fake your understanding of the English language or make up your own rules. If you write and speak improper English educated people immediate know it, and they will give you less respect because of it. We should study the English language the way we write and study rap lyrics, practice dribbling basketballs and rehearse songs: over and over, every single day for our entire lives!!!!!

    Peace out!

    1. Really Runshyt?? Why do educated people always feel the NEED to bring down other people by trying to correct them all of the time? Are you that insecure with your life that you have to feel important by correcting someone? This was not an English lesson my friend. This was about giving respect where respect is due. You could have kept your post to yourself!! I commend Fantasia for how she handled this situation!

    2. Really, Runshyt? This is your contribution to the topic at hand? Fantasia has been more than candid about her academic shortcomings due primarily to her sketchy attendance record. What is your excuse? Do you know punctuation, much? Is your keyboard charging too much for commas and periods? I had no problem comprehending the crux of Fantasia’s message; your message, on the other hand, seems to be lost in translation. Please, allow me to save you from yourself.

      YOU: Fantasia’s incorrect grammar: “im a tell you…” (No apostrophe used in “I’m” and the verb “going” is unused)

      Fantasia’s incorrect grammar: “…a beautiful black women…” (as is common among poor speakers/writers, the plural “women” is used to refer to a single “woman”)

      Correct grammar: “I am going to tell you…” or “I’m going to tell you…”

      Correct grammar: “…a beautiful, black womAn…” (The “A” is capitalized for emphasis)

      Singular: “womAn”

      Plural (as in more than one): “womEn” (the “E” is capitalized for emphasis)

      ME: To change your fragment into a proper sentence, insert the omitted verb “is” after the word “apostrophe.” Also, you need to add a comma after “I’m,” and a period after “unused;” which, by the way, is an odd word choice–perhaps you meant “missing” or “omitted?” As is also “common among poor speakers/writers,” you failed to capitalize “as,” at the beginning of your sentence, and failed to insert a period at the end, i.e. after “single woman.” Most ironically, you failed to capitalize the “t” in “the” while glibly informing us that your “E” in “womEn” is “capitalized for emphasis,” sans a period after emphasis.

      YOU: “It is embarrassing black people. You cannot fake your understanding of the English language or make up your own rules. If you write and speak improper English educated people immediate know it, and they will give you less respect because of it. We should study the English language the way we write and study rap lyrics, practice dribbling basketballs and rehearse songs: over and over, every single day for our entire lives!!!!! … Peace out!”

      ME: Please, ma’am, insert a comma after “embarrassing.” Unless, of course, you mean to convey that such communication is embarrassing TO black people. (The “TO” is capitalized for emphasis.) Insert a comma after “English language,” and change “or” to “nor.” Insert yet another comma after “improper English.” Why not toss a couple more in after “basketballs” and “every single day” for good measure?

      I must admit, what you lack in commas and periods, you more than make up for with your abuse of exclamation points. If I had to guess, I would peg you as the archetypical sister dissin’ (Yes, I said “dissin’.”) Rachel Jeantel and mocking Gabby-the-Gold Medalist’s pony tail. In all your getting, get an understanding. That is all.
