Twitter came for Sherri Shepherd yesterday because of one tweet that referenced gluteally gifted reality show star Khloe Kardashian.
Shepherd, who ultimately deleted the tweet, says she didn’t mean no harm.
“I’m just living my life. I don’t have a badonkadunk,” Shepherd says. “So I’ve always been fascinated about a butt and I’ve talked to doctors about getting injections and everything. I came across a pictured of a botched butt injection. Every time I think about getting a plumper butt, one of these pictures comes up. I said but Ladies we gotta stop going to these back alley people.
It’s not worth it, because we’re losing limbs, we’re dying. It’s not worth some Instagram shots and some $2500 that we’re paying. At the end, I was like I gotta ask Khloe Kardashian where she got her butt. Because she went to a legitimate doctor. But this is the beauty of Google. If you Google anybody you see their before and after bodies. There’s a thigh to booty ratio where you can tell if a woman’s booty is real. Their thighs have to match up with the booty.”
Shepherd says she’s a comedian, so it was kind of a joke. But her fans came for Shepherd and blew up her Twitter and Instagram with all kinds of crazy posts.
“Her fans – I call them the ‘Don’t come for me, unless I send for you’ crew. They cursed me and my dead grandmother out,” says Shepherd. “And they couldn’t spell the curse words. I was baffled because I was just really trying to say we need to stop going to these back alley people. Khloe clearly goes to someone legit. But the sheer number of people that was going off on me….If I’m going to start a Twitter war, I’m going to do it with Oprah. Oprah is a Black woman. She’s always had an onion. I respect Khloe Kardashian. She’s on her grind. I didn’t know they weren’t open at their butts. They talk about their lips, they’re so open about everything. I think if I was a man, and had made the joke, wouldn’t nobody have had a problem. I’m a woman and I made the joke and now everybody’s getting mad. ”
