R&B star Lucky Daye recently caught the wrath of Twitter after users felt that one of his statements was a bit too cheeky for their liking.
It all went down shortly after the 2022 American Music Awards (AMAs) wrapped. During the early hours of Monday, Nov. 21, Lucky made an odd proclamation on social media relating to Brazilian butt lifts (BBLs) and Apple AirTags.
“If I get you a BBL I’m putting an AirTag in it,” he tweeted.
If I get you a BBL I’m putting an AirTag in it

Twitter Has A Field Day With Lucky Daye
This late-night tweet soon caught a ton of attention and backlash, and users weren’t afraid to get gutter with their criticism.
A plethora of individuals specifically bashed Lucky Daye as a “deadbeat dad.” This critique is rooted in comments made by the mother of his daughter, who also accused him of not paying child support.
could put an AirTag on your kid’s bookbags but you’d have to actually see them, so…

On top of calling him a deadbeat, people also went about reminding the 37-year-old singer of his age.
Finding out Lucky Daye is a 37 year old man that doesn’t pay child support was not on my bingo card today

Not missing the opportunity, some declared that the backlash signaled it was the singer’s “unlucky daye.”

Finally, people threw in a revelation that Ne-Yo made about Lucky Daye earlier this year on FAQ Podcast.
Specifically, the “Closer” singer revealed that he was interested in signing Lucky a while back. However, after Ne-Yo caught Lucky in his bed with a woman, the deal was off the table.
So, with Lucky Daye already in the hot seat, participants just had to throw this in his face.

Users ultimately came out of the situation learning quite a bit more about the singer, as well as Twitter accountability.
The QT’s just taught me way more than i ever knew about this nigga:
1.) he a deadbeat & don’t post child support
2.) he almost 40
3.) Neyo kicked him out his house for fucking in his bed https://t.co/XkDJrP1R4h

One thing about Twitter is you will be held accountable

Despite all the backlash Lucky received, he didn’t respond to any tweets and just kept it moving.
In fact, he appears to still be focused on his recent appearance at the AMAs.
Thank YOU @iamluckydaye https://t.co/YVFIdY7UTW
