Antonia Carter, 26, has a new reality TV series that’s set to debut on the BET Network this month. The show centers around her family, which includes her 12-year-old daughter, Reginae Carter, whose daddy is rappper Lil wayne.
Toya, as she is affectionately called, couldn’t get pregnant by fiance MempHitz to boost the show’s ratings, so she did the next best thing: she created a scandal on Twitter.com that is sure to draw curious viewers to her new show.
According to loyal reader, snootypooty, Toya, whose username on Twitter.com is @antoniacarter, took to her Twitter page and tweeted, “It breaks my heart to see kids under 18 Gay.”
Toya quickly deleted the tweet and apologized for giving her opinion, but not before her original tweet was retweeted by bisexual bloggers, @Necole Bitchie and @MissJia, both of whom have amassed huge followings on Twitter.com.
Toya’s tweet whipped up a storm of protests on Twitter.com, causing her daughter, Reginae, to come to mommy’s defense. Reginae tried to be diplomatic at first by explaining that everyone has their own opinions. She finally told her angry followers — most of whom are under 18 — to unfollow her because her mom comes first.
“I know my mother is a nice lady and she have opinions,” she wrote. “But she said she’s sorry. The ones that don’t believe her, she tried. Unfollow me, my mom comes first.”
What do you kids think? Was Toya wrong to voice her opinion about confused young men prancing around Lenox Mall in high heels carrying purses? Or should she have kept her opinions to herself?
