In June 2013 I went viral about rapper Waka Flocka Flame. My blog post, “How a Waka Flocka Concert Ended My Marriage & Saved My Life,” went viral within one day of my posting it.
It was terrifying. I had no idea it would receive so many retweets, shares, likes, hates and lol’s. I started reading the comments by trolls and was immediately mortified. (But I read all the positive comments, and I appreciate them!) I still get comments and emails from it.
A post written from the heart, about how the ex’s nastiness about me attending a Waka concert was the death blow to our marriage, was suddenly all over the internet. Waka himself retweeted it and then Bow Wow was asking Waka about me on 106 & Park.
Waka also put the article from The Source on his InstaGram account:
Waka himself tweeted this after my blog went viral:
I met some great people because of it, and many thanks to Waka for NOT humiliating me, but being supportive about it.
Below is a compilation of some of my viralness. Warning: Seems a 53-year-old white woman who likes Waka is an easy target for some people. Proceed with caution!
