When I saw that Tarzan was trending on Twitter yesterday I figured it was just the internet being the internet and a poll came out, asking “Who’s the most fuckable Disney character?” or something. But no, Tarzan trended because of the 17-year-old twit that is Danielle Bregoli aka The Cash Me Ousside Girl aka Bhad Bhabie. Bhabie defended her acts of cultural appropriation by saying she’s the way she is because of her environment. She’s not trying to be black! She’s like Tarzan!
Bhabie got shit last week when she posted pictures of herself looking more like a black woman than the little white girl she is. At the time, she said that there were bigger viruses than her to worry about (like coronavirus), but I guess she needed some attention this week, so she farted out shitty words of stupid about it during an Instagram Live. While looking like she just scalped a discount Diana Ross impersonator of their clearance bin wig, Bhabie listed every black person she knew, said she’s only dated black guys, and added that she doesn’t “look at race”. She also defended using the n-word in songs she did when she was 13 years old by saying she used it as a term of endearment and didn’t “know no better.” Then she got into Tarzan. via Complex
“Y’all say that I try to be black. Maybe the reason for that is because I grew up in the hood. Tarzan…he grew up around the bears in the jungle. He didn’t know no better! … That’s all he knows! When someone grows up in a certain area or a certain place, they’re a part of their environment.”
Beyond the racist comparison, the analogy fails due to the reality of Bhabie not being lost in a forest of black people without access to her white family. The internet came for her:
Bhad Bhabie compared her acting black because she “grew up in the hood” to Tarzan being raised by gorillas??? Man pic.twitter.com/Sn3EAZSmrk

Bhabie then let out a river of delusion by saying that she could be a great rapper but is only known for being a Nickelodeon Rachel Dolezal.
“I’m a great fucking artist. And no one gives my shit a chance because of stupid ass, ignorant ass people like y’all on the internet over here making shit go viral that I want to be black.”
And at one point, Bhabie brought Lil Kim’s name into it, saying that Kim got a nose job and does her make-up to look white and nobody goes after Kim for that (“Oh really?” said everyone). And then while farting at the mouth about people saying she’s trying to be black, she spit this out:
“Who wants to be black? I just don’t understand it–I can’t comprehend it.”
Bhad Bhabie says Lil Kim’s nose surgery and use of lighter foundation is an attempt to be “white” after being accused of blackfishing last week on social media.

Dr. PHILenstein, come and collect the monster you created. And if Bhad Bhabie is going to compare herself to anything in pop culture, she should compare herself to Cool As Ice. But you know, even Cool As Ice doesn’t deserve that.
