In 2018, chances are you haven't thought much about Tila Tequila.
And now she's jumped on the fat-shaming bandwagon. Tequila — who claims to be a born-again Christian, when she's not claiming she died and was replaced by a clone — has attacked beauty YouTuber Nikkie Tutorials in a disturbing Facebook rant.
Tequila posted this image of Nikkie to her public Facebook page, along with a truly hateful rant about how GROSS and SINFUL fat people are.
This is a genuinely upsetting post which I am sharing verbatim, so please read on with care.
"Nothing irks me more than fat chicks who pound on the make up!" wrote Tequila, on her public Facebook page which has over two million followers. "They're already sinning grossly through GLUTTONY! THEN on top of that they're full of VANITY AND DECEIT with all that cake on their face! Perhaps that's why they like to CAKE it on... get it? Lmao!!!!! But anyway, obese people's sin show through their physical form! They're sinning SO much that it manifests physically! Gluttony, sloth...all that yucky fat stuff is highly sinful in the eyes of the Lord! So this girl is double sinning and who knows what else this clown has hiding in her closet? Disgusting! And the fact that society continues to promote FAT, OBESE "models" now as if that's healthy? It's pushing more women into sin by thinking what they're doing, the lifestyle they are living is ok when it's NOT! I don't care what you say or how much I've hurt your feelings, but the truth hurts and SOMEONE needs to speak the truth for once and God chose that someone to be me!!!"
Tequila, who was kicked off Twitter for being a literal Nazi, continued to throw stones at Nikkie, at plus-size people in general, and at... churches? I guess?
Again, this is quoted verbatim from her public Facebook post:
"Too many churches of today don't judge righteously in order to help people fix their problems, but instead they ENABLE people to live in sin! GROSSSSSSSSSS!!!!! I could NEVER be equally yoked with such slobs! But God literally says that you should not be equally yoked with non-believers or evil, wicked people! But hey, most "Christians" do anyway because they're not really christian........ #Fat #Slob #Gluttony #Vanity #Deceit."
She ended her post with several bible verses, which she's repeated multiple times in the comments.
Looking at the public edit history of Tila's Facebook post also reveals something interesting. Tequila originally shared her trash nonsense as a text-only rant. It was only liked 84 times. An hour later, she added the picture of Nikkie. It's now been shared over 300 times.
So not only is she using Nikkie's face to further her own absolutely repugnant worldview, she's ALSO using those photos to game Facebook's algorithim.
The still Tila stole is from Nikkie's powerful 2015 "Power of Makeup" video, which was LITERALLY about how makeup shaming needs to stop.
"Nowadays when you say you love makeup, you do it because you want to look for boys. You do it because you're insecure. Or you do it because you don't love yourself," said Nikkie. "Makeup is FUN. There are no rules. If you want to go for that super-sharp contour for the day, do it!"
