The comic act further revealed that she was unable to appear in comedic events and had to return some money that had been paid to her.

In her words; “I almost regretted coming out to say my truth, because people do not accept change. They are stuck with the old version of you because your old version makes them happy, and comfortable.

“They are plus size, they’re big, they can relate and it makes them happy. So, when you change they feel like you’ve betrayed them, they can’t accept change”.
