Lil Tay's Momager Quits Real Estate Firm After Letting Daughter Flex With Boss' Car

When flexing goes horribly wrong. 

If you wander around on social media long enough, chances are you've seen one of Lil Tay's videos. The 9-year-old who regularly brags about trap life is easing up on her flexing after her mother was caught using her boss' car on Instagram.

On Thursday (May 10) multiple outlets reported Angela Tian was fired from Pacific Evergreen Realty for filming her daughter's antics in empty mansions. But an interview with Global News, David Yang, the managing partner of Pacific Evergreen Realty, explained how Tian used his car without his permission. The video below, which has gone viral with over 2 million views, shows the presumed fourth grader jumping out of the parked car in all her flexing glory. “B**h, I just bought a Lamborghini! Y’all bi**hes can’t afford this sh*t, OK?” she says.

Yang says he wasn't aware of Tian or her daughter's antics and when he put it all together, Tian decided to resign before she got the pink slip. “Everybody got caught by surprise,” Yang said. He later added that he was “disappointed” and “mad” over the situation since he was only told Tian would only take photos of the car.

VICE uncovered earlier this week Tay's IG persona. Her page is ran by Tian who has falsely tagged locations like Atlanta and Los Angeles on posts when they actually live in Canada. The empty or freshly furnished homes on Tay's Instagram were also homes Tian had to show to clients. Most of the those videos have been deleted but live on fan IG accounts.

With so many things happening in the world, one might ask: Who cares? Well, the fandom of Instagram stars like Tay, Whoa Vicky and Bhad Bhabie highlights how easy it is today's youth to mock rap's stereotypes into dollars. Bhabie has music charting on the Billboard charts (and will also perform at the Hot 100 Festival this summer) and Tay has already aligned herself with rappers like Chief Keef and Lil Pump in an effort to make music. The flexing, as problematic and racist as it can be, has worked in their favor.

Comedienne Jess Hilarious Under Fire For Xenophobic Comments Toward Sikhs

Jess Hilarious came under fire Sunday (March 17) after she uploaded a video showcasing relief after four Sikhs were removed from her flight. The Lil Rel star defended her statements and said she was scared.

"If I'm scared I'm scared. F**k y'all. F**k how y'all feel," Jess said. "Y'all mad at me because I don't side with any other black person, because I don't side with every other race. F**k y'all. I feel how I feel. I felt threatened and that was it. F**k y'all, and I'm not flying there. We were evacuated, bitch. Why? Why? with no technical difficulties or nothing."

The Internet quickly sent the comic a digital side eye for her xenophobic comments, which came two days after 51 Muslim men and women were gunned down in New Zealand. The youngest of which was 3-year-old Mucaas Ibrahim.

what if Jess Hilarious’ middle name is Notthat?

A day after Muslims were ambushed and murdered while praying (death toll now at 51), Jess Hilarious hops on Al Gore’s internet to brag about+defend getting 4 people with turbans kicked off a flight because she didn’t feel safe.

Xenophobia is really disgusting.

The hate for Muslims is disgusting and Jess hilarious is trash and not worthy of a platform. https://t.co/qotZ9AwMLO

One Twitter user, a DJ who goes by the name DJ The Gypsy pointed out Jess' comments run rampant within other parts of the black community.

Jess Hilarious’ anti-Muslim rhetoric sheds light on a very important topic; Islamophobia within the black Christian community

The backlash Jess merited did, however, highlight not everyone shared her sentiments.

Just a word of thanks to everybody calling out Jess Hilarious on her awful, islamophobic actions & her endangering of innocent Sikhs. Means the world to see folks stepping up & speaking up.

Kim Kardashian Credited For Making Crimped Hair Cool Like Beyonce, Janet Jackson And Naomi Campbell Don't Exist

Spring is nothing without doses of cultural appropriation from those out of touch with black culture.

Insert Vogue, who decided to give props to Kim Kardashian for bringing back crimped hair on Friday (March 15). The businesswoman has been on the move lately, rocking a mix of kanekalon and yaki ponytails during fashion month, Chance The Rapper's wedding and other Kardashian-related events.

“What makes this look so modern is that the front is sleek,” explained her stylist Justine Marjan. “This gives a cool contrast to the texture.”

The texture? 

With many trends from the aughts coming back to the mainstream, this is one that hasn't really gone anywhere. But black beauty markers (layered gold chains, perfect baby hairs, name chains) paired with media ignorance and the Kardashian's own fascination with black culture has made it okay for her to receive all the props.

But we can't forget those who have slayed kanekalon, yaki and crimped styles like...

Janet Jackson

The singer's look for her comeback has been a uniform-like one, with Ms. Jackson rocking all black and her now signature ponytail.

Beyoncé

This. was. last. year. How could anyone forget this? The entertainer rocked various styles of kanekalon hair for Beychella.

There was also this amazing look at Serena Williams' wedding.

Ruth E. Carter

The Oscar-winning designer made the look all her own while on the red carpet for Black Panther. 

Nicki Minaj

Fans of the rapper are aware her early looks included fun crimped and wavy styles. When she made to move to ditch her color wigs in 2014, she's kept the crimped styles close to her heart.

And we cannot forget about our queen, Naomi Campbell

She's owned the look her whole career, from the runway to the red carpet, Ms. Campbell has always been on the forefront of casual beautiful looks.

Social media also got wind of Vogue's post, including actor O'Shea Jackson who like many of us, is just over it.

Maaaaaaan come on now. Come ooooon now. Bringing it back? Vogue stop this https://t.co/FEGSw3GM9V

Perhaps there's a bit of truth of the theories of fashion outlets trolling readers but this just deserves a permanent eye roll.
