Donna wants to “clean the air” when she’s ready
Still, she admitted that she’s spent nearly eight years in the franchise and feels she “owes” her fans “to clean the air.”
Donna believes the show is spreading a “false narrative” about her and wants to tell her side when she’s ready.
In Black ink crew In Season 9, Donna retired from tattooing to focus on her business ventures. She was upset when boss Ceaser Emanuel didn’t seem to support her when she tried to get her own spot at the Atlanta store, eventually leaving without telling anyone.
She shared her side of the story in an emotional Instagram Live in June 2021. Donna explained she “sacrificed everything” to move to New York and arrived with just $700. Also, she credited the black-owned business as her motivation for wanting to work there not for television.
Donna has previously complained about her portrayal in Black Ink Crew
The alum pointed out that the show portrayed her as “angry and unwanted,” and admitted it frustrated her since she never got into physical fights in high school.
She believes the change in the production crew has something to do with the producers choosing to stick with the same “narrative” rather than show their growth.
While Donna recognizes her privilege of having a platform on which to launch her personal ventures, she still notes that she is almost 30 and doesn’t want to stay in the same box.
She also claimed she was invited to Atlanta when everyone was flying there to film the show. However, the episodes showed her as she forced her way into the journey. After telling Alex that Donna is no longer welcome in his shops, Ceaser shows up in another episode. Black ink crew will be broadcast on VH1.
