Sexyy Red created a storm on social media last night (October 4) when she shared a sex tape on her Instagram Stories. Despite its brief appearance before the “Pound Town” artist swiftly removed it, the internet wasted no time, with users on X (formerly Twitter) quickly posting screen recordings of the video and sharing their reactions.
Many accused Sexyy Red of using this scandal as a diversion from a recent interview where she expressed support for Donald Trump and advocated for his return to the White House. In an episode of the This Past Weekend podcast aired on Tuesday (October 3), Sexyy Red claimed that Donald Trump had won over the hood by pardoning Black prisoners and providing stimulus checks. She also stated her desire to see the controversial former president back in office.
“Yeah, they support him in the hood,” she declared. “At first, I don’t think people were messing with him. They thought he was racist, making derogatory remarks about women.”
Was Sexyy Red’s Sex Tape a Strategic Move?
“Sexyy Red is low-key smart for posting her sex tape,” wrote one X user. “She’s currently embroiled in a scandal for being a fan of Donald Trump, but since this isn’t her first leaked tape, she exposed herself to divert attention from that situation… I have to give her props!”

Another individual suggested that the tape was indeed a diversion tactic but doubted its effectiveness for Sexyy Red.
“I knew Twitter would catch that Sexyy Red sex tape real quick, lmaooo,” they shared. “Nah, we won’t forget about that Trump statement, miss girl, I don’t care.”

Nevertheless, some extended the benefit of the doubt to the St. Louis, Missouri native, suggesting that Sexyy Red accidentally shared the video amidst posting numerous photos on her Instagram Story.
“Girl, Sexyy Red was posting all those random photos with her in it on her story and accidentally posted her sex tape,” one fan wrote.
