Imagine you get a call from the Today Show producers to model in their beauty segment live on television.
That’s exactly what happened for Malyia McNaughton last week. She met with YouTube celebrity Deepica Mutyala to prepare for their summer hairstyles that could be mastered in 60 seconds segment. The two mapped out a plan about which style would best suit Malyia’s coils and Deepica went to work.
What happened on-air didn’t exactly match the test run the two had agreed on and both Deepica and Malyia became internet famous.
While Malyia proved to be a good sport, it wasn’t long before the internet began spewing hateful messages about proper natural hair care and women of color. What do you think? Weigh in below.
