It’s all fun and games ’til a rapper gets you on camera looking a little thirsty and then blasts it all over the Internet. Ouch!
A young woman named Tina is now pursuing legal action against 2 Chainz for ruining her reputation this week after he filmed her backstage at a concert and labeled her a THOT (THOT = That Hoe Over There). In a video titled “#IsThisYoThot” that went viral this week, Tina can be spotted entering backstage and looking for Cap 1, 2 Chainz’s friend that she allegedly met through Instagram. Automatically writing her off as a groupie, Chainz asked his crew:
Is this yo thot?
Tina was also informed that she was being recorded and that backstage was “blog territory,” but she didn’t seem to mind. She says in the video:
Aww sh-t! This is going on a blog, forreal?! This is going on a blog and you’re really recording? Do I look good? You guys can follow me at Iluvtinaa on Instagram.
Now that the video has been released, and it has Tina looking all types of crazy, she is fighting back!
According to her Instagram, she’s siccing her lawyers on both 2 Chainz and Cap 1 and she hopes The Breakfast Club Morning Show will invite her on to give her the opportunity to tell her side of the story.
I feel like @hairweavekiller [2 Chainz] should feel as much embarrassment as I have endured these last couple of days for what he has done to my life, he has not apologized publicly and tries to contact me privately. Everyone re post this at @breakfastclubam@cthagod @angelayee @djenvy because 2 chainz should be the #donkyoftheday let’s get me on the breakfast club so I have a chance to tell my side of the story!
I’m at my lawyers right now, finalizing the paperwork, be prepared for a civil lawsuit @hairweavekiller@caviardreamz_ you had no right do ruin my life and tarnish my image like this! Now you will both answer for it!
Proving that all publicity is good publicity, Tina says she will be appearing in Vibe magazine soon.
Going to have a spread on #vibemagazine thank you for all your support and hate everyone. I just became an overnight celebrity. #thenewkimk
Whether or not Tina wins her suit, it seems as though she’s making the best of the situation. It will not be of any surprise if she lands a reality show.
Do you agree with her decision to sue?
Update: There seems to be some confusion with Tina and her Instagram page. She hasn’t updated the one she plugged in the viral video since the video was released, and another one has popped up during that time which states in the bio that she created the new page because her family follows her on the other. The new one, ‘Iluvtinaa’ is the one that is threatening to sue 2 Chainz.
At any rate, here is a video she sent us via Twitter, claiming the new page is a fake:
