B. Simone is headed to Mexico for vacation but is receiving backlash from critics after asking her followers to pay $10 to be added to her "Close Friends" list.
Simone said that being a part of her close friends will ensure her followers will get premium access from her vacation in Mexico.
“VIP ONLY. If you aren't on my close friends you are truly missing out! I'm heading to Mexico in two days you don't wanna miss this! All my vacation footage be on my close friends,” she announced on Tuesday (Oct. 5) on her Instagram. “LINK IN BIO! You will be added within 48 hours. Good luck.”
After her post, Simone was slammed by the internet for asking for money from her followers; some called the request "desperate," according to aceshowbiz.com.
Simone quickly shut down critics and responded, saying in the comment section of The Neighborhood Talk post on IG: "It's 1.40$ a day relax and 3000 plus people (and counting) seem to want this content ! If you don't want to be on my close friends then I'm not talking to you. see you 3k people in Mexico."
