Rapper and singer Sexyy Red has finally spoken out after coming into the firing line of fans in a recent interview when she expressed her support for former President Donald Trump.
On Tuesday, the “SkeeYee” singer accompanied comedian Theo Von on his The last weekend Podcast where she shares her views on Trump and how “we [the US] I need him back in office.
Red, whose real name is Janae Nierah Wherry, received major backlash from fans and social media users online for these comments, and the drama didn’t end there.
The same angry people soon accused the star of posting her sex tape on her Instagram Stories to distract from the interview. The supposedly scandalous video only remained on her social media for a short time before it was removed.
Now she has it shared with her followers on X, tweeted earlier how heartbroken she is over the release of the video and suggested it was done without her knowledge.
“I’m so heartbroken that anyone who knows me knows I wouldn’t do such nonsense,” she posted to her 878,000 followers.

One social media user quoted her words and added: “Omg [Oh my god] I thought she did it… now I’m mad because wtf [what the f***].”
“Fren finds out who leaked it and sues them for revenge porn. BOOM more racks!!!” a second post.
One loyal supporter commented: “Girls we don’t care!!!
Another supported the star: “Now that she has confirmed that she did not consent to the release of this video, I hope you all remove these videos and stop spreading them!”
Support for the star poured in as most commented that the person who posted it classified it as revenge porn.
“This woman was a victim of real REVENGE PORN and y’all say she deserved it.” [because] ‘That’s her brand’ like y’all are SICK,” one person wrote.
“I don’t care what anyone says. You’re still my favorite trapper,” one fan posted.

Another posted: “This is what your entire brand is about so yeah…guys [people] I don’t know that you wouldn’t do that. Honestly, the way you act is just right for you. Do not like. Fix it.
