8 Times Duckie Thot Gave Us All Our Lives On Instagram

"Y'all need to let this comparison go."

Culture & Entertainment

Duckie Thot is visually one of the most majestic beings to ever walk this planet. Standing at almost 6-feet tall, she has enviable skin, Barbie-like features, and legs that go on for days. To say she is stunning is quite literally an understatement, and saying that not many look like her, is one as well. I mean, there's even articles on the internet about her, questioning if she's even real because...melanin.

And we all know melanin is a flex.

Duckie got her start on the eighth cycle of Australia's Next Top Model in 2013 when she was just 17 years old, and after coming in third place, she struggled to find work in the local industry. This, as well as the passing of her sister, ultimately prompted her relocation to the United States. From there, her hustle eventually catapulted into being one of the most in-demand models having walked for fashion houses such as Prabal Gurung, Valentino and Victoria's Secret. Oh, and of course our favorite bad gyal Rihanna scooped her up and featured her as the face of several Fenty Beauty campaigns.

Sis now welcomes the praise that comes along with her newfound popularity, because as we all know, being as beautifully dripped as she is, can have its challenges. She even addressed the evolution of diversity in the beauty industry directly, by simply saying:

"These are moments that should be celebrated. Because when I first started, that wasn't the case at all."

But listen, watch how you compliment her. Because according to Ms. Thot, not all "compliments" are compliments.

In fact, the 25-year-old model says she has had enough of a very particular one: being compared to Kendall Jenner (a comparison that never even crossed my mind, but I guess the audacity of the internet has no bounds). After multiple commenters filled a recent post with, "She looks just like Kendall Jenner!" or "She’s the Black Kendall Jenner!" (*eyeeeerollllll*), Duckie decided to put an end to alladat, and publicly dead the conversation once and for all.


She said what she said.

And listen, I'm sure the comparison is meant to be flattering, OK, I get it. I also know that because race relations in America are trash, that most people have no clue how to relate to us other than saying ridiculous shit like somebody as frickin majestic as Duckie 'Damn' Thot can remotely be watered down to such a comparison, but let me be very clear to anyone reading this: absolutely tf not.

Instead, we’re gonna celebrate a queen who is one-of-one, and one that could neverrr be duplicated. Ever.

Here's a list of the 8 times Duckie Thot gave us all of our lives on Instagram!

What 14 People Say 'Great Sex' Means To Them

What is the difference between bad, average, and great sex? If I ask thirty people this question, I would get thirty different answers. As someone who's had their fair share of both good and not-so-good sex, I understand that there is no one size fits all answer to this question. "Great sex" can mean different things to different people. Case in point, I once had an amazing sexual experience with a guy that a mutual “friend” had a horrible experience with. Great sex is subjective AF! According to the mutual friend his sex was subpar at best. One person’s trash is another one’s treasure. Great sex boils down to what is good for you and your partner at the moment. No two people are the same so no two sexual experiences will be the same either.

5 Times Megan Thee Stallion & Pardison Fontaine Showed Their Love On The 'Gram

Another day, another photo of Megan Thee Stallion that went viral. But this time she had a little help from her boyfriend Pardison “Pardi” Fontaine. The “Pressurelicious” artist’s fans were in for a surprise a few days ago after Megan posted a photo of herself lying on the floor with her legs up and wrapped around Pardi’s waist. Pardi appeared to be focused on playing his video game while Meg’s derriere was tooted in the air but he managed to wrap his arms around it as he held the controller.

The Mamie 'Till' Movie Wants To Empower Us

Sitting in the theater getting ready to watch Nopefor the third time, I was excited, like a good film nerd, to see my friend's first-time reactions to the fun UFO horror-comedy. My heart sank immediately when a trailer for the film Till, which follows the life and legacy of Emmett Till's mother, Mamie, started playing first.

My knee-jerk reaction, of course, comes from years of watching film and TV that have exploited Black trauma onscreen and were created with little (if any) consideration for what could emotionally trigger the Black audience. The 1955 murder of Emmett Till is so heartbreaking and inherently violent; would this film make us live through that violence on screen?

Fortunately, no!

This week, before watching Gina Prince-Bythewood's incredible The Woman King, a featurette for Till played in place of a trailer and it soothed my fears.

"There will be no physical violence against Black people on screen," the film's award-winning director and co-writer Chinonye Chukwu says in the featurette. "I'm not interested in relishing in that kind of physical trauma. We're going to begin and end in a place of joy," she says.

Starring Danielle Deadwyler (whose heartfelt performance on HBO's Station Eleven stole the show) as Mamie, Till is a celebration of Mamie's tireless activism which sparked the civil rights movement that continues today and ultimately culminated in President Biden signing the Emmett Till Anti-Lynching Act into law just a few months ago in March 2022. "Mamie Till Mobley is a hero," says Alana Mayo, president of Orion Pictures, the production company behind the film. "I'm really, really committed to making movies not just by us, but for us," Mayo says in the featurette.

After a private screening of Till, this week, Trayvon Martin's mother, Sybrina Fulton, tweeted that the film was "#Powerful" and "a must see."

Mamie's story of courage in the face of unspeakable tragedy deserves to be told--especially as we continue the fight for civil rights today. Knowing that the Black filmmakers behind the film are centering Black joy and aiming for our empowerment through the film makes a world of difference.

TILLis in theaters October 14.
