"Sis, you paved the way for white women to get plastic surgery," one dissenter comments on Coco's recent Instagram photo.
Coco Austin is getting ripped to shreds for telling her fans she paved the way for big booties "before the plastic surgery craze."
On Monday morning, Ice-T's curvaceous wife shared an old modeling photo that put her backside on full display, but it was her caption that really got people talking. In the lengthy post, Coco said she wanted credit for celebrating her curves before Kim Kardashian and Nicki Minaj made it cool, and that she "helped change the minds of what booty was."
"I helped pave the way for thick girls during the skinny genre (during the Kate Moss days what they call the waif era) to be noticed as beautiful," the 38-year-old wrote. "This was back before social media when magazines were popping, back before Kim K, Nicki Minaj. I mention them because young people see pop culture as the history makers but they need to know it started somewhere before them. This was also back before the plastic surgery craze."
While Coco gave shoutouts to contemporaries Jennifer Lopez and Anna Nicole Smith for "making waves with the derriere phenomenon," many critics in Coco's comment section feel she should have also given credit to her plastic surgeon.
"Sis, you paved the way for white women to get plastic surgery," one dissenter commented. "But as for the minorities Melyssa Ford, J.Lo, etc. they paved the way for REAL thick women. Let's get that straight. Stop trying to take the shine away from MLK Day #next."
Another critic wrote, "You could've just posted your thirst trap...no need for a fake history book as a caption."
And a third echoed the sentiments of the above two, writing in all caps, "WE THE BLACK MEN IN AMERICA AND WORLD WIDE NEVER CONSIDER THIS WOMAN AS THICK OR HAVE A PHAT ASS. WE KNOW IT'S FAKE. WE WOULD NEVER IN OUR LIFE LET YOU THINK YOU EVER PAVED A WAY FOR ANY THICK BOOTY BOOTY CHICK."
I would like to shed light to almost 21 years of modeling ..I don't post much about it & new followers don't even know I had a career in modeling they just see a wife,mother and someone that was on reality tv but just like every actor, singer, rapper, entertainer I'm proud of what I've done. I feel people should know it wasn't easy..I helped pave the way for thick girls during the skinny genre (during the Kate Moss days what they call the waif era) to be noticed as beautiful..this was back before social media when magazines were popping, back before KimK, Nicki Minaj..( I mention them because young people see pop culture as the history makers but they need to know it started somewhere before them, this was also back before the plastic surgery craze. During my time it was pretty much Jlo that was making waves with the derriere phenomenon and Cindy Margolos was a popular bikini model and Buffie the Body was a popluar urban model and of course I need to give props to Anna Nicole Smith for also seeing this vision..To have booty it was considered to be fat in the modeling world.. But I helped changed the minds of what booty was. Today its a normal thing to see all different shapes and sizes, no one even thinks about it anymore. I helped history..I don't want to toss it aside like it was nothing...I'd like to think some of my modeling was meaningful... After tons of calendars,DVD's over 100 magazine covers and editorials I'm still standing..Thank you for all years of support .Power to the booty and strong healthy women! (This pic is from one of my motorcylce calendars) Update to post!!! This was posted yesterday & ALL comments were positive until race was brought up today.Let me remind you 20 years ago there were not a lot of white girls w/ thick bodies in the modeling game.They didn't consider my body type as the standard therefore It was harder to work in the industry.I was one of the 1st white models to break the mold & go mainstream with my body type and to let people know its OK to be curvy in the modeling world.Today curvy is the norm but when I first started out it wasn't. Yesterday I felt I explained this thoroughly but I see some of you needed more details
