Amara La Negra is getting called the archbishop of the “pick-me’s” for a recent photo and caption she wrote on her Instagram page.
“A man’s house is a reflection of the woman he’s with. Food for thought,” she wrote. “Being pretty is just a bonus with me,” La Negra continues.
The “Love & Hip Hop Miami” star was also clad in a Fashion Nova adjacent ensemble, while closely clenching a lemon scented Lysol bottle. A variety of other cleaning materials sat ever so complacent on the rim of the tub.
Folks on social media are up in arms for a variety of reasons and La Negra’s comments and mentions are currently in shambles.
Listen, first let’s make one thing clear, if you want to clean for your man, there’s nothing wrong with that–but what set most people off is her making the statement that the cleanliness of a man’s home is a reflection on the woman. There’s a clear line you’re making if you are saying that a woman’s role is to clean and make sure the house is taken care of. Two people who live in a home should take pride in where they live and if they choose to live in filth, how in totality does that owness live on one person’s shoulders?
To the sistern out there: you can clean better than rest, sex better than the rest and be every archaic example of a 1950’s housewife, but that won’t keep a man, or a woman for that matter. A relationship is a commitment between two people and nary a person who has strayed did so because of an unscrubbed tub.
Amara is a beautiful woman no doubt, but the messaging here is somewhat off brand for a person who touts female empowerment and independence.
