Luenell Address Drug Use
Comedienne Luenelle is not the first veteran celebrity to call out less seasoned reality stars for their insensitive remarks. Her latest Instagram post discouraging drug use sparked a feud with Joseline Hernandez. Many know Hernandez from VH1’s Love and Hip Hop Atlanta.
“Have a drink. Smoke a self rolled or dispensary rolled joint. Leave the f**king syzurp, molly and cocaine alone,” Luenell wrote. “You might be next and all you were trying to do was party. This sh** it no joke at all. ‘The dope dealers are killing people.”
Her post comes after the recent death of Michael K. Williams. The culture lost a few other greats including DMX and Fuquan Johnson to drug overdoses.
“But hey, you don’t have to listen to me,” the comedienne wrote, in addition to a broken heart emoji and three caskets.
Joseline Hernandez immediately responded to the post with some vulgar, disrespectful words.
“Tell this fat h*e to stop eating. That also can kill you,” wrote Hernandez. “She a burger away from a heart attack n you talking bout someone just died for whichever reason that she’s not even sure about. F**king pig put the plate down pig pig pig.”
Luenell responded, acknowledging that someone was triggered by her post. Then T.I. quickly came to her defense, claiming that no one will slander the comedienne on his watch.
