It’s a term many employ when the name Ashanti is mentioned.

However, the singer clearly has quite the bark and quite the bite – if a recent Twitter exchange is anything to go by.

See what we mean after the jump…

When faced with rude comments from a less than supportive follower, the Grammy winner clapped back with a fiery response:



In any case, Ashanti’s new album ‘Braveheart’ arrives….

Actually, nevermind.

    What a weak read. And she still remains a flop. He told no lies. Ashanti, bye.

    Obviously a Beyonce fan; they are the only ones who go around harassing celebrities on social media.

    These people are sick and need professional help.

    I was just gonna pass this by but then remembered that vlogger Tommy Sotomajor said “Whenever Black women don’t like what a Black man says they pull the ‘Gay’ card.”

    Ashanti could have shut him down without getting too personal. He only attacked her music, not her.

  5. January 20, 2014 at 9:54 am

    BEYONCÉ would NEVER…too bad. This will definitely not be a good look for her. Doesn’t matter because not only is she yesterdays news but the papers have been pissed AND shitted on and disposed of.

    ^^^i agree!

    The “your gay” thing is so school yard. You tried, and FAILED Ashanti but you should be used to losing by now.

    Childish Ashanti. Should have just ignored it because you’ll be getting many more Tweets of that nature tbh.

    You know what… I normally am no supporter of Ashanti but good for you boo. Everyone likes to call something a flop when in reality these people work harder than the person calling them that flop. Ashanti has done a lot and may be fighting for what she wants. You all take a multiple push back as a fail, but I call shelving a project a fail. Push backs shows me that this person is one who is not giving up.
    These people work to entertain you and all people do is call them a flop. Become a blogger (because being a real journalist is too much for them) and critique their work ethic from behind a computer and then give zzzzz worthy interviews. Listening to Sam interview anyone is worst than listening to Beyoncé trying to form any type of sentence. Y’all are the basic b****** in real life.
    Everyday the same people come on and say the same dumb s***. What is it that you all do for a living? If y’all even respond with college then I say get your tuition money back ASAP

    I don’t see why she got mad,Ashanti the single is a flop
    Anybody co-signing her weak ass comebacks must not know exactly how shade works.
    Typical of a chick who doesn’t have a good enough rebuttal to resort to The “You’re Gay” talk
    Ashanti is done,this is the most press she has got in years.

    He didn’t come for her,he came for her flop singles.
    People say the same ish about Ashanti on twitter everyday,so what made this guy special?
    Or is she finally about to release that struggle of an album “Braveheart” and is just being messy for attention?

    I thought it was funny. I remember when that ugly little girl was talking s*** to Rihanna and Rihanna Rihanna got in that ass. Stop hating on her, cause put her and your fave on a room with a pen and paper and see which one comes out with a song, cause this girl can actually write a song.

  23. January 20, 2014 at 12:01 pm
    Truth says:

    Why is she the one who looks pathetic for responding? That’s the funniest s*** I ever heard. The person who decided to say the negative comment is the pathetic one. She is just being human and probably responded because of a build up. People can only take but so much before they clap back. You people are seriously ass backwards

    She should not have made that comment because it was actually beneath her! But @ the same time you can not really blame her, especially when she was asking a question about the game and someone decided they wanted to be rude. He got what he deserved being random and rude for no reason!

    Caramelboi says:

    thank u @ molly couldnt have said better myself and to add to that never bite the hand that feeds u. she better hope lgbt dont get involve bcuz she done. i like Ashanti and i was rooting for her,but she did look patheic coming for him on a personal level when he just attacked her music not her image. she mad bcuz she aint selling bcuz if it didnt bother her she wouldnt have responded to him the way she did.

  28. January 20, 2014 at 12:43 pm
    The Brooklyn Bombshell says:

    A better response would’ve been “LMAOOO” her pulling the “How You Doin” card was weak and showed that she is infact bothered by his comment. I’m still here for her comeback…. want to see her win in 2014.

    Santana says:

    I don’t blame Ashanti! Not saying that what she was said was okay, but he deserve exactly what he bargained for. Being the outgoing and kind person as Ashanti is, people are always picking at her. She don’t do nothing to nobody. She asked an innocent question about a football game that a lot of people were excited about and he decided be ignorant and rude and say something negative.

    Like it goes “IF YOU CAN’T TAKE IT, DON’T DISH IT!’

    Emmanuel says:

    I’m gay and I’m not offended at all by what she said. He got exactly what he deserved. Now he all on twitter acting all sentimental and making a big deal out the whole situation.

    This the same dude who bullies every celeb from Ciara, to Rihanna, to Keyshia Cole. He finds his way to Ashanti and she slayed all over him. Now he’s crying!

    Then 5 mins later he calls one of his followers a f*****!


  34. January 20, 2014 at 1:46 pm
    Yup! says:

    @AnitaFakerrrrrrrrrrrr he never should have! She has freedom of speech just like anyone. I’m gay and in the closet and /i f@cks wit Ashanti even more for speaking up!

    By the way what Anita been up …still doing them bootleg shows! lmaof

    JAZZYJAZZ says:

    I don’t see how she’s wrong. And how is she bashing gay folks? Ashanti supports openly gay people who are comfortable with who they are and ain’t afraid to show it. He’s in the closet which means he pretending to be something he is not. So again, how is that bashing gay people if you are hiding who you really are?

    She didn’t say there was anything wrong w/ him being gay. she said he was still closeted. Either way it was weak. but I’m just saying. Y’all praise Rihanna for doing stuff like this.

    I think a Lana fan should be less worried about Ashanti’s so called FLOP status and more worried about what Lorde is doing.

    It’ll be embarrassing for Lana if Lorde wins a Grammy before her.

    How do you call Ashanti a massive flop when Lizzy Grant hardly shifted any copies? Seriously who bought that crap?

  45. January 20, 2014 at 2:41 pm
    Lovebird says:

    The first thing you Lana fans need to do is advise your fav to go back to her surgeon so she can put some shape on them lips; they look like two rectangular boxes taped together.

    The next thing you need to do is find her a vocal coach and a good makeup artist that will make her look half decent.

  46. January 20, 2014 at 2:42 pm

    Lana looks like trailer park white trash; which she probably is.

    Ppl expect nasty little clap backs or remarks coming from rihanna and nicki,but not a sweet person like ashanti. Some ppl probably were shocked bcuz we exepect to see a person like her to ignore it instead of giving it relevance. What got me is she say that and then call him a little b**** followed by lmao. Does she think all gays are b****** bcuz they are not. As a celeb she should knw what u can and cannot say without consquences.

    The truth hurst says:

    Lizzy grant aka lana del ray, the album I assume you are referring to never got a full release, it was made on an indie label and was taken off soon after because Lana’s manager helped buy her out of her contract with David Kane and then helped her sign a contract with polydor, Interscope etc. so death at you at trying to bring that up.
    Smh at you calling lana trailer trash when she is synonymous with beauty and class unlike your ratchet ass faves or have you changed them again? Lana is the face of the jaguar f-type, a car which is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful around; has Burberry handbag named after her and frequently featured on well known high class magazine COVERS. All of this would not be possible if lana was ‘trailer trash.’ Lana is featured on many best dressed, most beautiful lists.
    Dead at you trying to pull out the old ‘Lorde will end Lana’s career’ shade, me and rosie keep clocking you on that and yet you keep repeating it. The moody 17 year old that can’t understand simple lyrics– Sid the sloth aka lorde will always be Lana’s lessor and that’s why she is always compared to lana and has to attack her to get away from the shadow cast over her

    WTH says:

    Every celebrity has the right to defend themselves if they feel attacked. Ashanti, like many other artists, take their art (music, acting, painting, etc) personally and treat it as if you were talking about their looks because it IS them. So this “she shouldnt have made it personal” excuse, is just that, an excuse because it is personal.

    At the same time, Ashanti fighting back using the “in the closet” card much less, making anything dealing with homosexuality negative was wrong on her part. She just lowered herself even more responding back in that way and practically proven that kid’s point: She’s a flop. As we can see, she’s getting more press/spoken about for responding back to a troll on twitter then anything dealing with her music. She might as well accept the flop card.

  55. January 20, 2014 at 4:58 pm
    Derrick83 says:

    Was it really even necessary to point out that the single wasn’t doing well. I am so tired o these Stan wars. Ashanti is workin hard at a comeback and some asshole is throwing it in her face. I don’t blame her for lashing out. I do agree that she should have lashed out a different way but I don’t fault her. I swear blacks are mainly the only ones tearing each other down and it is not right. Instead of encouraging each other,new tear each other down. It’s pathetic.

    It’s not that deep in the world of insults. He insulted her, she came back. While I would like celebs to stay silent to the nonsense on Twitter a part of me enjoys seeing people clap back. What kind of a man bullies a woman regarding a setback like that? and what kind of a man would be on Twitter acting like a deranged stan like that….I think you know the answer which is why Ashanti’s response was appropriate. She’s talking sports while he’s twerking to Partition and most likely attacking Ciara, Ashanti, Keri Hilson, and any other female artist’s account he can gain access to.

    Exactly. All of a sudden Bow Down never happened and Rihanna never cussed fans out or laughed about hitting a fan with a microphone on Instagram. I can’t deal with these people with p*** poor morals trying to counsel other people. Standing for one thing one day, and another the next. I’m not even a huge Ashanti fan but it is annoying to see this response in regards to her MILDY defending herself. She didn’t even go all the way in. Yes, it was shocking to see Ashanti respond but that’s what that dude gets. People are so bold RTing and tagging celebrities in insults. Let’s please stop the madness and leave these artists alone.

    To be completely honest, there is a time and place for every artist.

    Not everyone will have long lasting careers like Madonna for instance and when artist peak too early, it becomes extremely hard to outdo themselves.

    Without trolling for names,every artist needs to realize at a certain time, your fanbase will reduce. But if there is still demand for your kind of music, please by all means keep making music regardless of opinions-which people will offer giving less consideration to the sensitivities of the artist!

    If not move along to other opportunities and there are MANY out there!

    Finally, it is amazing the depth of insights you find in blogs. Some comments are extremely shallow giving one the visual that only teenages who are inexperienced in the arena of self worth, think that it is COOL to employ the use of disparaging remarks in describing artists whose popularity is no longer what it used to be.

    Actually Ashanti’s comment was quite accurate! Yes it was also immature and harsh, nevertheless her discernment was definitely on point. As a matter of fact, only a little investigating is required to unearth that he is MORE than likely on the DL and psychologically deep in the closet about his attraction towards the same s**. Both of them clearly behaved rudely and immaturely and should be ashamed of themselves. I know that Ashanti was obviously offended by the comment and decided to lash out, that’s perfectly normal to feel that way and to react that way, but as a grown woman and as a celebrity she has responsibilities to uphold.

    Could she have been referring to his Twitter Handle? It’s ‘@KicksB4Rent’, which indicates he might have trouble paying for rent and therefore buys shoes when he has a to make a choice — and Ashanti riffed on that!

    I don’t think she was referring to him being gay at all. How would she know?

    Yo all ya’ll some b******. People always f****** with people on twitter, trying to say slick s***, to get retweets. People do the absolute most. So what her album flop’d da f*** does it has to do with football? Nothing at all, just another dumb ass trying to be cute, for retweets. Most f***** up thing about Twitter, or any other social media site.. everyone think they a comedian. So they expose people, or take people pics, and out single random there flaws, all types of lame s***. All for internet fame. It’s sad, but this the world we live in today. Anyone awarding this n****, needs to grow the f*** up. Like someone said… “I’m sure if you look on ol boy’s Twitter ain’t nothing happening but duckface bathroom selfies”

    LMAO Oh please…I\’m GAY and I think what she did is no big deal. Whatever! The funny thing is if Rihanna would\’ve said something like this everyone would just be laughing along with her. But let Ashanti commit a Twitter crime the world is over. The person in charge of this blog clearly doesn\’t like Ashanti cuz all they do is down her and her career. Get BRAVEHEART it\’s a great album.
    PS She didn\’t say anything offensive to gays, she just dissed him the same way he tried to play her. Go Ashanti!
