So, a note to a lot of the newer musicians and actors on the scene: If you don’t want people to assume you don’t take care of yourself, be careful what you say and post.
As of late, there have been a number of newly famous people who’ve talked about not liking to take too many showers, hating vegetables and water and a lot of the things that everyone know are the baseline for what is good for you. Now we have popular singer Summer Walker saying “I hate showers,” and then feeling some type of way when people took that comment literally. Again, be careful…
The 23-year-old, who recently debuted her first studio album Over It and is currently on tour, shared an InstaStory of a basin filled with face wash, wipes, a foaming bath product, micellar water and baby oil gel. She captioned the story, “My washing bowl lol I get to wash in my bowl I hate showers.”
The combination of the soap and water in the bowl, with the wipes, is what people tend to call a “ho bath,” and it’s something women specifically may do when in a hurry and need to freshen up pretty quickly. But for the “Girls Need Love” singer to say “I hate showers,” people then assumed that the bowl was her preferred way of getting clean. The judgment was pretty swift on social media, with people accusing her of being dirty. She would eventually take to InstaStories to let people know they had it all wrong (and had her all kinds of f–ked up based on her tone).
“Stay out my comments with that dummy sh-t,” she said. “I take showers, I don’t like them because I like baths in very nice jacuzzi or garden tubs. if I don’t have time or whatever I’ll take a hoe bath in the sink (something that every female has taken in their lives), yes I use soap.”
“F–k I hate people man,” she added. “who tf really walking around NEVER washing themselves. Lmao plp really just mad miserable.”
It was pointed out by some on Twitter that perhaps, because she’s on tour, she prefers using the wash bowl over a shared tour bus shower. Still, people took her literal words how they wanted to take them. With that being said, there were plenty of reactions on Twitter to the ho bath heard ’round the world. Hit the flip to see them.
