Iconic rapper Lil Kim caused a stir by removing her underwear and launching it into an excited crowd at ONE MusicFest in Atlanta.
A viral video depicts Lil Kim mid-performance asking “What do I got for y’all next?” before declaring “Panties coming down!” and flinging her panties while kicking into her next song.
Fans clarified Lil Kim was simply tossing the outer panties she wore over pants. “It’s part of her show but some of ya’ll too young to know that lol,” one fan commented.
However, others mocked the nearly 50-year-old artist’s risqué move. “Maybe the late 90s Lil Kim Not the new Lil Kim,” one stated. Critics drew comparisons too, suggesting Nicki Minaj would face harsher backlash for identical actions due to their long-standing feud.
“If this was Nicki y’all would have dragged her [through] filth but okay,” one alleged. The divisive display split viewers, with some defending her recognizable stage antics and others deeming her too old.
As for the lucky recipient, speculations surfaced about attempts to profit from the souvenir or incorporate it into their collection. The panty toss adds another bizarre chapter to Lil Kim’s infamous legacy.
