Danielle Bregoli always seems to be making headlines for all of the wrong reasons, and being accused of “blackfishing” is the most recent one.
Now, she has broken her silence on the backlash…
Bregoli rose to fame after a simply amazing appearance on Dr. Phil. The feature was about out-of-control teenagers, and Bregoli certainly lived up to that title.
When the audience took issue with her bratty attitude, she threatened to physically fight them all, with this iconic (and eminently meme-able) one-liner.
She’s managed to do what very few can manage – spin her small amount of viral attention into a viable (and lucrative) career.
And she’s surprisingly successful in her new career. Her music has a pretty large fanbase and it has even generated some positive critical reception.
Bhad Bhabie has legions of teen fans.
Turning a moment of internet infamy into something that she clearly enjoys (and is making bank with) is no mean feat. She’s certainly more shrewd than many thought she was.
It was a huge hit for Bregoli, with over 80 million views on YouTube. The success of this single led Bregoli to signing a record deal with Atlantic Records.
2018 was an amazing year for the singer.
With Atlantic Records, Bregoli recorded her first mixtape, titled 15. She was also named by Time Magazine as one of the world’s most influential teens – which can’t really be disputed.
Bregoli has a series with the social media giant, Snapchat, which has so far proven to be a huge success – largely thanks to her strangely captivating personality.
The lucrative deal that she signed had people shaking their heads – but, again, Bregoli turned the venture into a huge success, reportedly bringing in hundreds of thousands of sales for the brand.
Whether by accident or through smart, entrepreneurial spirit, Bregoli has come from nothing and has become a hugely influential personality with a career that many would envy.
Not to mention, she’s making a killing.
Bregoli’s multiple business ventures have led her to wealth beyond any teenager’s wildest dreams – and she’s certainly not afraid to flaunt it!
One of the mixtape’s most popular tracks was with rapper Lil Yachty. “Gucci Flip Flops” is about wealth and symbols of status – something that’s clearly very important to both of them.
And her latest social media move has the internet feeling annoyed.
And fans quickly noticed something strange.
Bregoli is basically unrecognizable.
… Mostly because she looks like a completely different race.
It is pretty shocking.
And, obviously, the internet did not hold back.
Emotions ranged from confused, to amused, to angry.
Wow, they really do grow up so fast!
But it might not actually be so funny…
Blackfishing is actually a pretty problematic issue – and not something Bregoli should want to be associated with.
Bregoli behaves in the way she does mostly due to social media influences and that is completely undeniable.
In fact, Bregoli just seemed thankful for the attention!
Does the world have bigger fish to fry right now?
