Petty or Nah? National Museum of African-American History Getting Backlash for Featuring an Atlanta Housewife

The opening was this weekend.

Published September 26th

During the official opening of the National Museum of African-American History and Culture, people were shocked to notice that a certain reality star was featured in its walls. Real Housewives of Atlanta queen NeNe Leakes was featured in the "Gestures of Dismissal" exhibit with a still from a past RHOA reunion, and some people don't agree that she's worthy of the honor.

Though most of social media seemed to be either pleased or amused at the fact that Leakes was featured in the Smithsonian, others weren't all the way here for it. Take a look at some of their reactions, below:

What do you think? Is the hate valid or unnecessary?

See what NeNe's been up to lately in the BET Breaks video, above.
