Facts About T.I’s Daughter
She is an expert at bashing online trolls
One thing that T.I’s daughter is not afraid of is calling out online trolls. She has many times proven to be far from a wimp. On one occasion a guy commented on a photo she posted of herself in a multi-colored two-piece, saying that she looked like she had a d***. Deyjah replied telling him that it was not his business and that since it looked like she had a d*** that he should “S*** I*.”
She once called out a pedophile
In another of her Instagram posts, a man attempted to flirt with her while she was underage. The man argued that girls like her were the reasons why men went to jail and that there should be a law forbidding girls below 18 from wearing makeup. Harris in typical fashion clapped back saying that men went to jail because they are pigs and not because of make-up.
