Nene Leakes Laughs Off Fans Criticism After Posting Meme About Standing Up to ‘Bullets’ From ‘RHOA’ Co-Stars
After shutting her Instagram comments for the last several days, Nene Leakes has reopened them, only to get eviscerated by fans.
The star of Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” uploaded one of her famous pink flyers Monday that read, “God has given me the strength to let all the bullets hit me and fall to the ground! They can’t take me out because I’m not trying to take anyone else out.”
Leakes added in the caption, “You can never WIN when you play DIRTY! Stay woke #istaywinning #strongblackwoman #threat #hbic.”
The memo was uploaded on April 22, just a day after the epic conclusion of the “RHOA” reunion where Leakes remarked to her co-stars, “All of y’all trying to get at this G. Every last one of y’all. Nene, Nene, Nene, Nene, Nene,” as she made gun motions with her fingers.
“Mrs. Leakes is the one,” she added.
In response, fans promptly tore into the longtime Bravolebrity after viewing the reunion, which saw Leakes shut down after former pals Cynthia Bailey, Porsha Williams and the other co-stars poured their hearts out to her concerning their issues over the course of the season.
Leakes defended her actions at the “Bye Wig” party, which allegedly resulted in her choking and scratching a producer. He also wound up with a broken tooth. Also at the reunion, Leakes went toe-to-toe with Eva Marcille after Leakes spoke to her about her home and finances while mic’d and fell out with Bailey after the model failed to give her a heads-up about Kenya Moore attending her Seagram’s Escapes event.
Fans reflected on those moments and let their feelings fly in the comments section.
“NeNe I love you but you can’t control other powerful Black women. Lighten up a bit!!”
“As. Much as I love watching u on the show, from your comments on this post, sad to say, but fame and fortune has clearly made u very arrogant. Before u say u don’t care, I also don’t care, but it’s your fans who made U who u are. @neneleakes #respect humility goes a long way regardless of money or fame.”
“How old are you 13? Grow up.”
“You are nasty and you are the reason the show is over for me ! You’ll end up alone.”
In response to some of the remarks, Leakes hit back.
“You do know you are watching TV,” the star said when one follower asked if she knew she’s “the one causing these problems.”
“You don’t make my decisions and I don’t need your advice!” Leakes snapped at another who suggested she “might need to retire and return to your humble self.”
When one fan said she “might need to take her own advice,” Leakes said, “I always do boo.”
Another commenter simply got a series of laughing emoji when they asked if she’s ever been wrong or “are you one of the lucky ones that’s always right?”
