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."
