There’s a definitely a setback to being famous and trying to share the person you love and care about most with the public. While most fans will applaud your happiness, others will scrutinize your relationship, and in some cases, the looks of your partner. That seems to be the case these days for many celebrities (just ask Omari Hardwick and Lance Gross), but it looks like Tank has had quite enough.
While on Twitter yesterday, singer Tank decided to confront his followers about comments made about his girlfriend and the mother of his two children (one is on the way), Zena Foster. It didn’t take long for me to find one of those comments on a picture of Zena:
Tank doesnt want anything to do with black women. “Too much drama” and we probably make up 98% of his fan base smh love his music, but I won’t buy another cd or go to another concert. #bootleg #eyecandy #bootlegeyecandy
I can’t say he necessarily started the conversation with the right question, but he definitely got his followers and fans talking.
The responses to his question varied. Some of his fans told him not to go there (“smh…@TheRealTank just go ahead and log off now bae. You can’t win this one.”), others agreed with him (“@TheRealTank I agree it’s IGNORANT!! AFRO-AMERICANS have enough to deal with…racial profiling, BWD, COPS the list goes on and on!”) while some told him that it has a lot to do with the behavior of black men (“@TheRealTank or that our men do not want to admit they help with the divide between color within our culture.
But what would your response be to such a question? Was the question poorly worded?
