Masika Kalysha has no patience for people who went to college and are not using their four-year degree because they are trying to land in the same field as her.
While it is not clear what provoked her statement, Masika’s comments on women who fall in this category, went viral and has sparked an intense debate about education.
Here is what got the reality TV star in trouble in the first place: “Ladies” (I use that word very lightly) stop bragging about your college degree that you’re not using. Being dumb enough to waste mommy & daddy’s money to sit through 4 years or more of college just to (try to) do what my college drop out ass is doing… is NOT brag worthy. Idiot.”
Masika, who is not afraid to mix it up with her followers on social media, got exactly what she wanted in the first place, a lot of attention.
One angry critic wrote: “I had to come back on this….bc I’m tired of people always downplaying people who decide to go to college, instead of selling flat tummy tea. Like what kinda sick convoluted world do we live in.”
Another one added: “Chile bye…… when the looks and body fades there goes the career that was created via social media……but that degree will and always hold weight no matter how you look…. if there was no social media the world wouldn’t know half of these ppl bc they’d have no career…. social media has made a lot of irrelevant ppl relevant!!!!”
A third person came in and defended the baby mama of “Trap Queen” rapper Fetty Wap.
The commenter stated: “Anybody can deff get a degree if they really want it and apply themselves…some ppl just rather do other stuff…so brag about it and complain about student loans and debt at the same time to b doing the same job as someone without a degree cooll…bragggg.”
Masika insists that people going after over the remark have misread what she said initially because she was only talking about those who are bragging about a pricey degree that they are not using.
Her critics argue that education brings more than a career.
