This is the Tweet that sparked all the Chit-Chat conversations
Marsai celebrated her 18th birthday on August 14. Her appearance in Rihanna’s collection prompted Twitter to share everything from her age-appropriate looks to the sexization of women. young black man in Hollywood.
The debate seems to have been sparked by Twitter user @zoraslovechild, who react to viral clip by Marsai on Thursday (November 10).
@zoraslovechild wrote, “Mixed feelings about this as she just turned 18 but she ATEs and she looks gorgeous.” In one thread, the user added, “I love her outfit and don’t think it’s inappropriate. I’m saying she’s a fresh 18-year-old girl and men are weird.”
As the reactions begin to unfold, @zoraslovechild continues to double down on his thoughts on Marsai on Savage X Fenty. After labeling 18 as a child, she tweeted, “You have an 18-year-old walking in the same show as a sex abuser.”
The alleged “abuser” mentioned in her tweets appears to be Johnny Depp, whose guest appearance sparked a private debate earlier this week. In June, a judge found Depp AND his ex-wife Amber had been found guilty of defamation after a whirlwind trial discovered abuse in their martial arts arguments. However, the judge ordered Heard to pay more than Depp by $10 million in damages.
The reality is everyone thinks I have a problem with clones but I really have a problem putting an 18 year old girl on a lingerie show with big butts and a sex abuser. I think you all need to reevaluate and realize 18 is a child. She shouldn’t be on the show

Marsai has excelled at having a mature and age-appropriate personal style. Elegant, appropriate, luxurious. Her participation in the fenty show is extremely timely and invigorating as she is just entering young adulthood. I really love the doll

Some of the ladies here seem a bit Erykah Badu-ish with a Marsai/Fenty theme.
Why try to police what an 18 year old girl is wearing so that it can stop older men from looking at her sexually?
Where is her freedom in all of this?

This tweet was inspired by that girl’s tweet about Marsai on Savage X Fenty. A show that launches a sports line. Like you guys have to be careful not to protest and seduce these young girls just because you’re uncomfortable.

I just want Marsai to protect. Today, the young queen will be gone and tomorrow they will drag her name through the mud. It happens to every young black celebrity turning into adulthood
