Bevy Smith had to correct herself after posting an ill-received tweet about LGBTQ slang.
If there’s one thing the “Fashion Queens” star can do, it’s speak with a little extra flair when the cameras are rolling. However, the Bravo star doesn’t seem to appreciate flamboyancy once off the set.
Yesterday, she made a reuqest to specific group of fans about how they should act when the approach her.
Dear Young Gay Men, pls don’t come up to me “queening” out, I lightly pepper my convo w/Gay terms but I’m a woman a hello will suffice!
The statement didn’t go over well with her fans and followers who felt that she was discouraging their natural behavior. Accusing her of telling them not to “act too gay,” her followers made it clear that they weren’t here for her off-color comment.
Bevy, who hosts the show with hairstylists Derek J and Ms. Lawrence, responded by insisting that she has nothing but love for the gay community. Then she questioned why so many people were speaking up on this matter when its hard for her to get a response about other important causes.
