On Sunday (March 17), Sexyy Red shared her experiences on her Instagram stories saying she was stopped because she was wearing too much jewelry.

“We’ve been stuck at the border all day. I had too much bands on me, they couldn’t handle that shit,” Sexyy said.

 “Too much jewelry on me, they couldn’t handle that shit. Had a fur coat on, they wasn’t f**king with your girl. They told me I look like Griselda Blanco,” she added.

She continued, “Y’all h*es can’t say y’all went to Mexico and had to get stopped at the border ’cause y’all had them f**king racks on y’all, ’cause I had jewelry on y’all. Y’all hoes can’t say that. Too many buckers. Where my fingers at?”

I like to have a personal life,” she said. “ I’m already famous or whatever, so everything be out there. I be trying to have something to myself that I could keep. Just go home and be with my son and my family. That’s the reason I was hiding.”
