They say put your money where your mouth is, but in Draya Michele’s cast her mouth might have just cost her millions in an endorsement with Rihanna’s lingerie line, “Fenty x Savage!” As you recall, Draya recently joked and made light of Megan Thee Stallion’s shooting by Tory Lanez, and this allegedly got her axed from the deal!
Today, the internet speculated that Michele lost her Savage x Fenty endorsement in result of an internet blow up last week when the model made comments about Megan Thee Stallion and Tory Lanez. ” I want you to like me so much you shoot me in the foot,” Michele jokingly said during an interview. This comment did not sit well with the internet as many jumped to Megan’s defense as well as the rapper tweeting her own personal response to Michele. “…Who tf jokes about getting shot…”
After Michele began to catch heat, she quickly apologized through social media, however this week, the consequences aren’t over. Earlier today, rumors began to fly on Twitter that the model has been dropped by Rihanna’s lingerie label Fenty x Savage. The sultry line has a stacked ambassador list including Megan Thee Stallion, which would ultimately serve as a conflict of interest.
Naturally, Black Twitter pointed to her comments’ being the reason she was let go and followed suit via social media with their sleuthing.
Also, and naturally again, the internet has its own comedic responses to these allegations.
We feel Fenty made the right decision to part ways with Draya–if this happened–and her comments on Megan were the reason. Rihanna is the owner of this company and brand, and a domestic violence survivor herself. Nothing Draya Michele said was funny, especially when women are dying every day in domestic violence disputes–three daily on average!
We are sure Draya will get picked up by another brand soon, but this should teach her that some things do not deserve commentary and can be costly to her.
