Which i feel in no way i do! i feel like i am my own true self and if you don’t like it you simply don’t have to comment on it!”
“i basically did this to troll everyone back that swears i’m trying to be something i’m not!” she added. “i was proving a point to the karen’s that love having an opinion on everything! but if in any way i did disrespect anyone i apologize i never meant for it to come off like that.”
