The Twittersphere is having a field day with news that Future allegedly banned a Miami night club from allowing any fat girls to party inside.

Popular Instagram influencer @na0___ shared the tale on her IG story last night, saying, “Just got word that it’s true, Future said no fatties in the club.”

Noticeably perplexed, she told her followers, “I’m just trying to understand really why this is a thing. Why is he allowed to put those rules in place…the discrimination is insane to me.” Adding that she doesn’t doesn’t give a damn about a rapper, Naomie said “It’s the fact that it’s a thing in 2019 where we can say no fatties on the club” that upset her.

The South Beach venue where Future was hanging out has yet to be named, but discrimination in Miami clubs is nothing new. In 2012, four Black women made the news after exposing the famed Fontainebleau Miami Beach hotel from denying them entrance based solely on their race. When one of the women texted a party promoter to tell him they were turned away from the door, his response was “Its a double standard @ the fountainbleu. White chics can be ok. Black chics gotta look twice as good and they only cater to a so called urban crowd on thursdays and sundays. Peace and love.”

Given that history, there could’ve been a possibility Future didn’t actually say no big girls allowed, rather the club owner decided to enforce the discriminatory policy. However, the same influencer later shared a text exchange with her friend casually telling her, “I just was told no plus sizes in the club for future. But we can find somewhere else.” She went on to say the no plus-size policy is a common thing on South Beach, which speaks to the problematic nature of fat-shaming, as plus-size model, actress, and influencer Simone Mariposa pointed out on Twitter.

Unfortunately, judging by the many jokes shared on Twitter in response to this news, Future is far from the only fatphobic man out there and, sadly, many see this type of discrimination as okay.
