I can’t help but find Tameika “Tiny” Harris entertaining. Whether it’s “Weave Trip” with her sidekick Shekinah, releasing a diss record to her own husband or permanently changing her eye color, the girl knows how to make us look.
And last night I was looking and laughing at a couple of pictures that popped up on Twitter. Apparently, Tiny knows a few Deltas and AKAs and when they were posing for a picture, throwing up their respective Greek affiliated hand signs, Tiny didn’t want to be left out.
So not only did she jump in on the picture, she threw up the hand signs too. Both of them, AKA and Delta’s.
I can’t exactly tell you why but the pictures had me dying laughing. Honestly, it probably has something to do with the way Divine Nine members attempt to fiercely protect their traditions and organizations while Tiny just walked up in that mug and, I’m sure in the eyes of some folks, disrespected all of that with the flick of a pinky and the meeting of her index fingers and thumbs.
That’s comedy, particularly when it’s common knowledge that not only did Tiny not attend college, she just started studying to receive her GED on the last episode of “The Family Hustle.”
She wouldn’t be the first celebrity to express an interest in being a part of a Black Greek organization. In fact, last year Fantasia expressed her admiration for the Deltas, even going so far as to say she wouldn’t stop until she could become a member a part of the sisterhood. And instead of interpreting her comments as a compliment, several Deltas dragged Fantasia until she ultimately apologized. It was a shame really.
While I’m sure some Deltas and AKAs may be in their feelings about this, the sorority members in the picture certainly didn’t seem to mind, though they didn’t exactly link arms with Tiny.
What do you make of Tiny throwing up these signs? Are you offended or do you find it rather comical?
