Dionne Warwick Defends Fan Who Was Told He Couldn’t Call Her ‘Auntie’ Because He’s White: I’m Everyone’s Auntie
Dionne Warwick wants her fans to know anyone can call her “Auntie” if they want.
The iconic singer, who’s never short of a viral moment ever since joining Twitter recently, defended a fan after a social media user said he wasn’t allowed to call her the adorning nickname.
It started when one man asked Dionne Warwick:
“Auntie, have you tried white claw?”
“Really disturbing seeing a White man call a Black woman “Auntie” You are lucky Dionne is nice. You better not try this with other Black women. How dare you? Black women are not your #MAMMY or Aunties. Only BLACK ppl can say that to each other…This isn’t the 1800s or the 1920s, White Man. Don’t you ever again refer to a Black woman as “Auntie”.”
“Hi. This was unnecessary. He was not disrespectful. He can call me Auntie if he wants to.”
“I am everyone’s Auntie.”
