The internet is rallying behind rapper Yung Baby Tate after she was cruelly criticized on the internet for showing off her natural curves. Below, take a look at the photo that’s sparking a conversation about body inclusivity, body positivity, and finding your blessings in disguise!
“This is honestly so iconic,” the 25-year-old rapper captioned this photo that showed her rocking a leopard ensemble during her performance at this year’s Afro Punk.
Sadly, the candid photo was met with criticism from those who voiced judgment about her midsection. Some even went as far as to advise her to “lose 10 pounds.”
How rude! An advocate for body positivity, the “I Am” rapper didn’t let that get her down. Instead, she clapped back by encouraging her fan base to post photos celebrating their natural bodies.
She even joked via Twitter: “Y’all gone be so mad when I link with Savage X Fenty in this bomb a** body of mine.”
Not much longer, did Yung Baby Tate garner the attention of the Savage x Fenty business mogul. That’s right, Rihanna reportedly reached out to the rising entertainer. It wouldn’t come as a surprise, especially since Rih is known for showcasing her inclusive lingerie brand with beautiful and curvy models.
Below, see all the ways Yung Baby Tate reacted to the fashion and beauty icon’s message. Go awf, sis!
