Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes was involved in a verbal altercation Thursday with a disgruntled fan. Viral video footage captured the heated exchange between Leakes and a woman who accused the reality star of refusing to take a picture with her friend in an airport.
The woman approached Leakes and said, “I just wanted to let you know, how you did my cousin? That was really rude. You supposed to be an idol and a role model.”
The reality star defended herself, replying, “No, I had to make a phone call. I don’t have to do anything.”
The woman said, “Everything that people say about you on that show, it is true. And you should be fired from that show. With your basic hair. But you got money, though? With them Rainbow clothes? Girl, bye!”
The viral video was accompanied by a Facebook post from the woman who claimed her friend tried to speak to the reality star but was met with a “yuck face like girl don’t touch me.”
The woman continued, “She proceeded to talk reckless and so did I..she even went as far as saying I’m going to get my A** whipped and I told her ‘That will be the day gurrrr’…she called security on me thinking that was going to stop me from getting on the flight…the security officer didn’t even know her #SheIsBeyondRude.”
Leakes has yet to publicly address the incident. Check out the viral video footage and the Facebook post below.
