Danielle Bregoli always seems to be making headlines for all of the wrong reasons, and being accused of "blackfishing" is the most recent one. After her response to the backlash left a sour taste in her fans' mouths, she has now taken it upon herself to explain the reasons behind why she's "acting black." And to say it is ignorant would be a total understatement, not to mention disgusting.
Keep scrolling to see the video where she admits the horrible "truth"...
Many will know Danielle Bregoli for one thing in particular.Bregoli rose to fame after what some describe to be an amazing appearance on Dr. Phil. The feature was about out-of-control teenagers, and Bregoli certainly lived up to that title.
The appearance birthed her now-infamous catchphrase.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.
But since her viral appearance, Bregoli has done something quite surprising.
via: Getty ImagesShe's managed to do what very few can manage - spin her small amount of viral attention into a viable (and lucrative) career.
She's rebranded herself as rapper, Bhad Bhabie.
via: Getty ImagesAnd 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.
via: Getty ImagesTurning 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.
Her debut single was called "These Heaux."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.
She's used her fame to pursue many different ventures.

Though people love to hate her, Bregoli seems to be coming out on top.
via: Getty ImagesWhether 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 debut mixtape was filled with collaborations with other rap stars.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.
But controversy has never been far from Bregoli.
She recently posted a whole bunch of videos to her Instagram...
Here are some of the comments...

Some jokes were made...
How TF Bhad Bhabie go from a white teenager to a grown black woman? https://t.co/n4TEOkxVQU— micah ❤️ (@micah ❤️)1586181635.0
But it might not actually be so funny...
What in the blackfish is Bhad Bhabie doing??? https://t.co/LBedvE9JD0— Queen Antifa (@Queen Antifa)1586180160.0
However, many pointed out the fact that the people who are angry are the ones who encouraged her behavior from the beginning...

Although it doesn't seem that she's too concerned...
via: InstagramIn fact, Bregoli just seemed thankful for the attention!
Bregoli then posted this on her story to address the issue...
via: InstagramDoes the world have bigger fish to fry right now?
The answer seems to be "no" because the backlash just didn't stop.

And it wasn't pretty...
via: TwitterI vow that we stop these celebrities getting on Instagram Live because that's where it all seems to go wrong. Keep scrolling to see the full clip.
In true Bregoli fashion, she used her outside voice to say this:
via: Twitter"Y'all say that I 'try to be black because I...maybe [the] reason is because I grew up in the hood. Tarzan, right? The story of Tarzan—"
For those of you that aren't aware, Tarzan is a fictional character brought up in the jungle by gorillas...
via: TwitterSo you're telling me Bhad Bhabie just compared growing up "in the hood" to growing up in the jungle being raised by wild animals? Problematic would be an understatement right about now.
I think this goes without saying, but fans were less than impressed.This user couldn't quite believe what he had just heard.
While another tweeted this...
