Social media reacts to Blac Chyna's leaked sex tape
Did you think Black Panther vs. Killmonger was an epic battle? That's nothing compared to Blac Chyna vs. The Kardashians. (She hates them so much she refuses to even put a "K" in her name!) It all started last year, when Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian went through a messy public breakup. Rob went on a social media rampage, leaking nude photos of the stripper-turned-reality star. (Revenge porn - always a classy move.) Afterward, Chyna filed a lawsuit against the entire Kardashian family, claiming that they are out to destroy her career , and that they sabotaged her reality show "Rob and Chyna."
Well, now Blac Chyna has something in common with one of her enemies: a leaked sex tape. (And you thought The Cloverfield Paradox was the only surprise movie release this month.) The video is reportedly 83 seconds long, and features an unidentified male rumored to be Blac Chyna's ex-boyfriend, Mechie. Mechie is a rapper who rose to popularity on Vine, and remains popular on Instagram and Twitter. Recently Rob shared a video clip of the two kissing on Instagram, and a "BC" tattoo can be seen behind Mechi's ear. That confirms he dated Blac Chyna after Rob, although I suppose he could also just be a huge fan of Benedict Cumberbatch.
No matter what you think of Blac Chyna, revenge porn is awful and nobody deserves to have their privacy violated in such a manner. As her attorney, Lisa Bloom tweeted: "Revenge porn -- posting explicit images without the consent of everyone in those images -- is a crime, a civil wrong, and a form of domestic abuse. It's also a way to try to slut shame women for being sexual. Girls have killed themselves over revenge porn. It's not a joke."
Evidently they plan to take legal action against whoever leaked the sex tape. On Twitter, several people joked that the culprit was Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner, and that today she was celebrating:
Also, several people posted reviews of Blac Chyna and maybe-Mechie's sex tape, and unfortunately, it is not certified fresh on Rotten Tomatoes. The gossip site Bossip wrote that it was just as bad as "Kim Kardashian and Ray J’s sexual snoozefest." They consider Blac Chyna's performance to be "very uninspired" and "akin to how it looks when you’re fumbling around in the dark trying to plug in your phone charger into the wall." (Ouch.) On Twitter, the critics were equally brutal, comparing Chyna to Bobby from King of the Hill, and claiming she "singlehandedly ruined Black History Month."
Well, it looks like the Kardashians have won this battle, but it's only a matter of time until Blac Chyna strikes back. Much like the Black Panther and Killmonger, they're enemies for life. Or at least until they reunite on a reality show. But if the feud continues, hopefully there won't be any more revenge porn. Even super villains would agree, that's a low blow.
