As soon as Pearl saw this, she commented with laughing emojis and Pabi immediately asked her what she was laughing at. See the awkward interaction below:
As soon as Pearl realized that her comment might have been taken out of context, she immediately went online to clear the air.
“I am going live because I have not been on Instagram the entire day, everyone thinks I am dogging Pabi Cooper and I am so sad about that,” she said.
She then went on to explain how everything she does is misconstrued, “why must everything I do be taken so f****ed up, how come you guys always think I am being an a******.”
Pearl also revealed that she texted Pabi,” I have texted Pabi Cooper to be like, ‘omg, this confusion is so sad,”
Pearl then went on to explain what was going through her mind when she made that comment, “I really thought that she is booked in Nigeria, she is killing it right now and when she worded it in a Nigerian accent, I thought she was making a joke about being booked, I thought she was kidding, I just thought she was flexing on us.”
