She’s best known as one-half of the City Girls, but that doesn’t mean Yung Miami doesn’t have other aspirations outside of becoming a rap icon. Most recently she’s been pouring her energy into several different avenues. Among them are her upcoming music releases alongside JT, her Caresha Please podcast, and finally, her acting career. The Florida-born performer first showed up in Netflix’s You People. She’s since gone on to have two noteworthy TV stints as well.
Kenya Barris’ Grown-ish series hired the mother of two to play Ms. It in one episode of their fourth season. Elsewhere, 50 Cent brought Miami onto the BMF cast alongside names like Lil Meech, Kash Doll, and La La Anthony. Her appearance in season two aired on Thursday (March 9) night. It obviously left plenty of viewers upset – according to Twitter, anyway.
Caresha Brownlee, Aspiring Actress
Users haven’t been biting their tongues about the 29-year-old’s performance, some of them dubbing it “the worst acting” that they’ve ever seen. In her brief scene with Meech, Miami slaps him after hearing the bad news that her own partner has been shot. As some social media users pointed out, this is similar to the “Twerkulator” artist’s real-life situation with one of her children’s fathers, who previously lost his life.
Unfortunately, Caresha’s acting wasn’t giving the emotions that BMF fans wanted. Many were quick to criticize her for looking as though she wanted to laugh during the serious moment onscreen. As the trolls continue to clown her, the recording artist didn’t hesitate to clap back at this on Friday (March 10) afternoon. “If I’m crying why y’all laughing??? Y’all play [too] much,” she wrote.
Miami is Tired of the Trolls
In other posts, Miami showed love to those supporting her venture into acting. “So today y’all hating on @yungmiami305? She went from scamming, finessing, etc. to rapping, talk show hosting, and acting… Now y’all mad? Damned if you do, damned if you don’t!” one enthusiastic fan wrote.
“I love to see [people] win in life, elevate, and give their family the [world]!” their sweet message concluded. In response, the City Girl said, “The more they hate, the more opportunities come!! It’s only the beginning for me!” Read more Twitter reactions to Yung Miami’s BMF performance here, and check back later for more pop culture news updates.
