The XXL Freshman List has been critiqued year in and year out for leaving off notable names from their yearly issues. From Lil Skies to Tekashi 6ix9ine, this year’s hottest artists have spoken out to voice their displeasure in the publication’s “rigged” ways. Lil Skies was penciled in as the tenth name on the list this year but he refused to show up for the cover shoot as somewhat of a protest. With the full list of names being announced earlier today, Bhad Bhabie saw her likeness left off, choosing to brush off the snub by pointing out the level of popularity she has reached.
Reacting to the news of her snub on Twitter, Bhabie noted that she received more votes than anybody else that made the list. The young girl wrote, “U can’t expect a 15 year old female to make a list sponsored by a condom company… even if i got more votes than anyone times 10. #facts it’s all good bhabie bhabie.” Considering XXL’s main sponsor for the issue is Trojan Magnum, it would be a little absurd and possibly even controversial for Bhabie to be on the cover as an underage girl. While she claims that she received ten times as many votes as anybody else, it will need to be fact-checked as everyone’s favorite rainbow-haired rapper was seemingly leading by a wide margin when the competition closed.
Do you think Bhad Bhabie deserved a spot on the Freshman List or was she left off with good reason?
