Bhad Bhabie — formerly known as the “Cash me ousside, how bout dat” girl — continues to draw the unforgiving wrath of social media.
Over the weekend, the controversial TV personality-turned-rapper unveiled a new look on Instagram, revealing a much darker complexion than people are normally used to seeing on the 17-year-old Floridian.

But Bhad Bhabie’s transformation didn’t sit right with some people. Almost instantly, they began to bash her on Twitter, accusing her of cultural appropriation and “blackfishing.” Not one to hold her tongue, Bhad Bhabie headed to Instagram to defend herself, claiming the darker look was simply for a photo shoot.
“Millions of people sick, thousands dying every day and y’all worried about me getting make up done for a photoshoot?” she wrote in her IG Stories. “I’m usually the wild one but y’all need to chill and focus on what’s important right now.”
But this isn’t the first time and won’t be the last time Bhad Bhabie will be dragged for her looks. Last December, she was ridiculed for sporting box braids and went off on Twitter, insisting she had every right to do what she wanted with her hair.
“To all the black females that are saying my hair ain’t meant for box Braids guess the fuck what y’all hair ain’t meant to be straight but y’all glue whole wigs on to your heads and sew Brazilian/Indian/Peruvian hair which is anything like your natural hair texture at all and I don’t say a god damn thing neither do the other cultures that you get the hair from,” she wrote on Instagram.
“And on top of that I’m not one of the ppl who has ever made fun of or said anything bad about girls with box braids or any type of braids. I completely agree that would b out of line and culture appropriation if I was trashing black girls for wearing braids hen getting them but that’s not the situation at all so leave me tf alone or imma start getting real disrespectful.”
Bhad Bhabie’s most recent stunt has brought the haters out in droves.
Check out some of the reactions to her darker complexion below.
