Ever since social media has given followers extra entry to their favourite stars than ever, the darkish aspect of fandom has been counterbalanced by a silver lining — artists can clap again, usually in intelligent, hilarious, and generally downright worthwhile methods.
After a troll on-line referred to as out Latto for allegedly carrying the identical pair of leopard-print panties two days twice in a row, the Atlanta rapper’s response not solely put the peanut gallery instead, it additionally almost netted her $100,000 when she put the underwear in question up for auction on eBay (after offering photographic proof that like Albert Einstein, she has a drawer stuffed with an identical pairs from Goal).
Sadly for Latto, eBay pulled the itemizing for violating its “used clothes coverage” according to TMZ. In keeping with the coverage: “Used underwear and socks are usually not allowed, even when they’re clear.” I assume if Latto’s actually critical about cashing in on her pantaloons, she’ll need to strive one of many (many, many) different platforms the place such issues aren’t simply allowed, however inspired (critically, there are such a lot of).
Look, fam, no kink-shaming right here… however the place are y’all getting the cash for this? In this financial system!?
Anyway, Latto seemingly doesn’t want the additional earnings. She’ll be honored as certainly one of Billboard‘s Women In Music in March, which can undoubtedly result in extra profitable alternatives. She was additionally Billboard‘s prime new artist in 2022, thanks largely to her hit “Massive Vitality,” which peaked at No. 3 on the Scorching 100 and caught round for 51 weeks.
