French Montana now knows what happens when you mess with Tichina Arnold. The former Martin actress went off on Montana via Instagram recently after he made fun of her on the social networking site. 

A month ago Montana Instagrammed a photo of Arnold along with the caption, "I wish Martin could see this right now. He would tear her a-- up." The line is a nod to her character's love/hate relationship with Martin Lawrence's character, who used to make fun of her hair (and other things).

Arnold caught wind of the post and came back at Montana with a well-worded rebuttal. "Man oh man. Mr. Montana, I've perused (read through with thoroughness and care) your #instagram profile description, pictures & posts… but despite my determined effort, I STILL don’t have a CLUE to one very simple question… 'Who ARE you?'" her post reads.

"I mean other than reading that you’ve dated a Kardashian, and you seem to enjoy taking extraneous pictures with LEGITIMATE celebrities, I’m baffled (perplexed, confused) as to WHO you are & WHAT you actually DO?" she continued. "How do you contribute to society? What do you do to HELP those in need? What philanthropic works have you done? Are you on the board of any charitable organizations? Do you posses your own charitable organization? Do you own your name? How many of your followers are actually REAL followers and not computer generated?"

The Queens native wasn't done putting Montana in his place. She gave the "Pop That" rapper business advice, and sarcastically offered to help him find work.

"Oh.. And one other thing, if you are gonna post or repost things about other people (such as myself). FYI: maybe you should put more effort into aligning yourself with people who can ASSIST you with building your brand for longevity, only THEN will you be prepared to (as your boy Martin would so clearly put it) 'Stomp with the big dogs.' But either way, I’m pleased to know you are a true fan of the Martin show despite what criticisms you have. Your continued support is proof that for over 30 years, I have CONTRIBUTED something of VALUE on television to many people (including yourself) and many generations and hopefully more to come. Hit me up and maybe I can hook you into individuals who have 'Serious Inquiries' regarding hiring you. I just need to know what exactly it is that you are SELLING, because unfortunately, I STILL don't know. Keep your head up & GOD Bless! TICHINA."

Lastly, Arnold asked that Montana donate to the We Win Foundation, her non-profit organization benefiting those suffering from lupus and other auto-immune diseases. "It would be AMAZING if you made a donation instead of losing 40k in one on one basketball bets with your cohorts," she added.

Montana is currently in South Africa but he got around to explaining himself on Instagram this morning (June 9). He reposted the photo of Arnold with the message, "I didn't make this picture I just reposted it like a million other people, don't use me to plug your charity I use to be a fan Pam. I was shocked to see this pic iam not disrespecting you stay blessed."
