B Simone is now famous for all the wrong reasons. But she didn't "drop the ball" — she maliciously stole and profited from Black creatives.
B Simone is in hot water.
The star of “Wild N’Out” is currently under fire after it was revealed that she plagiarized multiple bloggers’ work for her book, “Baby Girl: Manifest The Life You Want.”
While Simone is feigning ignorance, her motives suggest something much more sinister.
Just a few days ago, B Simone came under fire for a very different reason. The “Wild N’Out” star — who was best known for her audacious publicity stunts with rapper DaBaby — criticized men who have “9-to-5” jobs. She said that she couldn’t date a man who wasn’t a “hustling entrepreneur.” And she called working-class men “corny.”
By no means are we saying that women should financially support men. However, this wasn’t the thing to say in a time of worldwide medical and financial crisis.
These statements, combined with her arrogance about being a “millionaire,” led to B Simone getting dragged for her life on Twitter.
The blogosphere was already feeling affronted by B Simone. And rightly so.
So when the Boss Girl Bloggers revealed that Simone had plagiarized more than a few pages from their already-published book, Twitter naturally finished her off. Mortal Kombat had nothing on the brutality that Twitter inflicted on the struggling comedian.
Simone’s manager blamed the design firm. Rapper Meek Mill tried to defend her. But Simone ultimately realized that she needed to take the blame.
I feel like the people I hired in my team dropped the ball, I’m taking full accountability because at the end of the day, I’m the leader. I’m the CEO, I’m the coach, so it’s my brand. I take full accountability, even though I did not know. My business mind is growing every day. The way I do business is growing every day. I take this as a learning experience.
B Simone previously claimed that she was the one who wrote the book. But not only did she lie, she stole from Black creatives in the process. And in times like these, that’s not what anyone needs, or wants, to “manifest.”
