Of the three proverbial things you don’t do, French Montana tugged on Superman’s cape over the weekend. Or Superwoman’s cape in this instance.
French posted the above pic of Tichina Arnold, best known as Pam from Martin, on his Instagram with comments most took to be him clowning on her hair. Obviously a reference to Martin’s incessant jokes about Beadie Bead on Pam and good for laughs, right?
Laughs from everyone except Ms. Arnold.
Somehow she caught wind of French’s words and went entirely the f*** in him, reminding him of who she was, the longevity of her work and the lack of acclaim on his part. Her word to Montana her IG:
“Man oh man. Mr. Montana, I’ve perused (read through with thoroughness and care) your #instagram profile description, pictures & posts… but despite my determined effort, I STILL don’t have a CLUE to one very simple question… “Who ARE you?”.. I mean other than reading that you’ve dated a Kardashian, and you seem to enjoy taking extraneous pictures with LEGITIMATE celebrities, I’m baffled (perplexed, confused) as to WHO you are & WHAT you actually DO? How do you contribute to society? What do you do to HELP those in need? What philanthropic works have you done? Are you on the board of any charitable organizations? Do you posses your own charitable organization? Do you own your name? How many of your followers are actually REAL followers and not computer generated? Oh.. And one other thing, if you are gonna post or repost things about other people (such as myself). FYI: Maybe you should put more effort into aligning yourself with people who can ASSIST you with building your brand for longevity, only THEN will you be prepared to (as your boy Martin would so clearly put it) “Stomp with the big dogs”. But either way, I’m pleased to know you are a true fan of the Martin show despite what criticisms you have. Your continued support is proof that for over 30 years, I have CONTRIBUTED something of VALUE on television to many people (including yourself) and many generations and hopefully more to come. Hit me up and maybe I can hook you into individuals who have “Serious Inquiries” regarding hiring you. I just need to know what exactly it is that you are SELLING, because unfortunately, I STILL don’t know. Keep your head up & GOD Bless! TICHINA … Oh! One more thing, if you know of anyone who has an auto immune disease such as #Lupus, go check out my 501c3 organization at http://www.wewinfoundation.org – Unfortunately thousands of women (and men) battle with this constant life threatening #autoimmune #disease everyday. It would be AMAZING if you made a donation instead of losing 40k in one on one basketball bets with your cohorts. Your positive & monetary support would be GREATLY appreciated. Thank you for your time.
But, things didn’t stop there. Here’s a not often mentioned thing about French: he doesn’t back down. He didn’t retreat from 50 Cent when the two went at it (I’ll never forget him clowning 50’s jean shorts and calling him a swagless monkey). And thus he replied – via Instagram, of course – to Arnold’s shots directed at him.
“I didn’t make this picture I just reposted it like a million other people, don’t use me to plug your charity I use to be a fan Pam. I was shocked to see this pic iam not disrespecting you stay blessed”
Not the harshest of replies, obviously, but no apologies either.
Hopefully, the back-and-forth between the two can and will end where here.
