‘No Fatties in the Club’

Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn is an Atlanta-born rapped known as “Future,” who has won some awards and sired five children with five different women, none of whom he married. Naomie Chaput is a plus-size model who weighs over 350 pounds and has more than 200,000 followers on her Instagram account (@na0__). As a synopsis of American cultural decadence, therefore, this controversy is rather illuminating:

The Twittersphere is having a field day with news that Future allegedly banned a Miami night club from allowing any fat girls to party inside.
Popular Instagram influencer @na0___ shared the tale on her IG story last night, saying, “Just got word that it’s true, Future said no fatties in the club.”
Noticeably perplexed, she told her followers, “I’m just trying to understand really why this is a thing. Why is he allowed to put those rules in place…the discrimination is insane to me.” Adding that she doesn’t doesn’t give a damn about a rapper, Naomie said “It’s the fact that it’s a thing in 2019 where we can say no fatties on the club” that upset her.
The South Beach venue where Future was hanging out has yet to be named, but discrimination in Miami clubs is nothing new. In 2012, four Black women made the news after exposing the famed Fontainebleau Miami Beach hotel from denying them entrance based solely on their race. When one of the women texted a party promoter to tell him they were turned away from the door, his response was “Its a double standard @ the fountainbleu. White chics can be ok. Black chics gotta look twice as good and they only cater to a so called urban crowd on thursdays and sundays. Peace and love.”
Given that history, there could’ve been a possibility Future didn’t actually say no big girls allowed, rather the club owner decided to enforce the discriminatory policy. However, the same influencer later shared a text exchange with her friend casually telling her, “I just was told no plus sizes in the club for future. But we can find somewhere else.” She went on to say the no plus-size policy is a common thing on South Beach, which speaks to the problematic nature of fat-shaming, as plus-size model, actress, and influencer Simone Mariposa pointed out on Twitter.


(Hat-tip: Instapundit.)

Now, to add some context to this “discrimination,” imagine that I, a 59-year-old white man with a gray beard, had attempted to enter this private party at a Miami nightclub. Don’t you suppose that my presence would have been equally unwelcome? If I were denied admission, would anyone in the “social justice” community give a damn? I think not.

What is “the problematic nature of fat-shaming”? What does that phrase even mean in the context of a rapper’s nightclub party?

But why do people want to hang out with “Future” anyway? I’ve never been a fan of the hiphop scene, but if the “social justice” community wants to be angry at “Future” over something, how about his notorious habit of spawning bastard offspring all over the place?

Wilburn is being sued by both Jessica Smith and Ciara. Smith is suing him for failing to pay child support, and stated that their son “suffers from emotional and behavioral issues stemming from Future’s neglect as a father”. Ciara is suing him for defamation, slander, and libel. In October 2016, a judge said that Future’s string of tweets bashing Ciara did not relate to the $15 million she was asking for.
Prior to his music career in 2004, Wilburn was arrested for theft by receiving stolen property and contempt of court.

The man is a menace to society, but no feminist ever voiced a single word of criticism toward him prior to this “no fatties in the club” controversy, for some reason. “Intersectionality,” I presume.

    […] No fatties in da club.  (Stacy McCain rolls with the Chicago Manual of Style, so I’ve taken the liberty of “correcting” his spelling.  I’m street like that).  Tl;dr — some rapper says a “plus-sized model” can’t come to his bash at a Miami nightclub; feminist outrage ensues.  Some things feminists aren’t outraged about: The fact that said rapper has five children by five different women; that at least two of the women are suing him for being a catastrophic, possibly abusive, deadbeat dad; pretty much everything else about “hip-hop” culture.  For some reason, as McCain says.
