Desert Storm emcee Fabolous’s Tuesday morning is off to a rocky start on Instagram.
Fans are still unsettled about his domestic violence incident affecting the mother of his child Emily B, where reports held that he knocked her two front teeth out of her mouth and a video showed a heated exchange between the two. Unfortunately, his comment on a young boy being disciplined in church, posted by the undisputed king of Instagram and Hollywood icon Will Smith, has only made matters worse.
In the clip, the child is shown hilariously screaming at the top of his lungs attempting to beat out the roar and music of the church’s choir. His guardian (presumably) interrupts his selfie video by tossing what appears to be a Bible at his head to silence him. It works, but he still returns to the selfie camera to now quietly mouth his thoughts about the music being too loud for his liking.
Hilariously, Will can relate, he wrote in the caption, reminiscing on how his own mother used to reprimand him in church for similar misbehavior. Instagrammers commenting their respective LOL-moments were having a ball until Fab’s comment popped up.
“Like she put him on mute with a pop upside the head,” he wrote.
Considering his current controversy, fans’ laughter was brought to a halt just as quickly as the young boy’s shouting was pre-Bible throwing. Fans immediately began warning him that such a comment might have come too soon amid the domestic case, while others drew harsh comparisons to the incident with Emily.
“The same way you put [Emily] on mute, right?” one Instagrammer wrote.
“You the last person to say something about ‘popping’ something,” said another. “Abusive n**ga.”
Fabolous didn’t respond to any of the criticism, but hopefully there’ll be no more comment section blunders in the near future.
