NEW YORK, NEW YORK - OCTOBER 17: Young M.A performs at Billboard 2019 Hip Hop Power Players at Union West Events on October 17, 2019 in New York City.

Fans became concerned for rapper Young M.A after a video began circulating on social media of her getting a haircut. They noticed the yellowing of her eyes and felt that it might mean that she is experiencing a health crisis. Fans were quick to attack the Fatsdabarber, who is also a cast member on Nick Cannon’s Wild ’N Out, for posting the video online. Many felt that Young M.A was being exploited as she appears to be facing a current health issue.

“That barber is completely f—— wrong and unethical,” wrote one fan on Twitter after seeing the video. “Young MA whole body language looked like she ain’t wanna be recorded and you posted that s—?”

Another added, “That barber foul for posting that vid of Young MA. You could definitely tell she ain’t really wanna be recorded like that smh.”

While many were wishing the “BIG” rapper well, one fan pointed at the comparison of how celebs are treated online when they could be going through a health crisis. “These comments showing me we haven’t learned from Chadwick Boseman.”

In an Instagram Story posted on Wednesday (March 15) per XXL, Fatsdabarber defended himself against the attacks online.

“Y’all got so much to say as if I’m trying to embarrass my dawg. [She] reposted my video. If she didn’t want me to record she would have told me y’all don’t know our bond nor our friendship. What y’all need to do is just send your prayers for her and that’s that. She didn’t have a haircut in a month and she wanted me to bring her haircut back to life and which I did!!!!! Thank you sis for coming and rocking with me like always — Love ya.”

Young M.A reiterated Fatsdabarber’s response by reposting his Instagram Story and writing, “We blessed don’t let that get to you blooda,” she wrote. “And I told you it was like 4 months.”

The “OOOUUU” rapper didn’t clear up fans’ concerns about her health but as of now its confirmed at least that she has no bad blood with Fatsdabarber.
