“Love and Hip Hop: New York” star Alexis Skyy recently erased a natural beauty shot of herself from her social media after fans left her comments in shambles.
The 25-year-old model shared a barefaced selfie to her Instagram page on Monday evening and added a lengthy message about doing what “makes you happy.”
“There’s no success without a story,” Skyy wrote, posing with her left hand underneath her chin. “I may not be proud of some decisions made on the road, I’m proud of the woman I’m becoming from it all. … I choose to be happy. #Ace #Thugluv.”
Her now deleted post received over 62,000 likes at the time and over 694 comments. However, a slew of fans zoomed in on Skyy’s face and remarked on the visible eye discharge on her face.
“Yooo you got mad eye crust right there son 😂😂”
“Naw delete this! Her eyes look crusty af”
“She’s naturally pretty but we she should of washed that eye booger before posting dis 😩”
Other fans dragged Skyy for the apparent new tattoo on her hand. They believed the “83” stood for her boyfriend Trouble‘s apparent gang set or the couple’s anniversary date.
“Please don’t tell me she tattooed their date 8/3 on her hand 😩 they just got together”
“Naw I see what she did there Tr3y I see you blood”
Nearly 11 hours after Skyy posted her selfie, she deleted it. It may have been due to the criticism she received.
The mother of one is no stranger when it comes to backlash.
On August 4, Skyy, her boyfriend Trouble, and rapper YFN Lucci threw a pool party centered around the recent cucumber challenge, where women performed sexually suggestive acts with the vegetable. The “LHHNY” actress received the most backlash out of the trio after she was caught on camera penetrating a woman with a cucumber.
A day after she went viral for what some folks called a degrading video, she addressed the incident on an Instagram Live video, blaming it on the alcohol in her system.
“Y’all talking about this damn cucumber,” she said on August 5. “Y’all, the girl was a porn star. Like, y’all f–king relax… She’s the one who told me to put it in there. I was like, ‘Fine.’ When the alcohol’s in your system, you’re just having a good time”
Despite the negative comments from naysayers, Skyy is still showered with an abundant amount of support.
“Do your thing beautiful lady,” a fan commented on her post from August 29. “With all the bad comments that you’re getting your doing J🤩B.”
Another added, “Omg all the hate on this girl page is so sad dam just stroll leave her alone. Dam sis is bad af than any of y’all 🤷🏽♀️💯 “
