Safaree Samuels Threatens To Quit ‘Love & Hip Hop’ After Show Airs Footage Of His & Erica Mena’s Daughter Falling: That Was Tacky & Tasteless!
Safaree Samuels is the latest reality star to be disgruntled with the Love & Hip Hop franchise.
Safaree Samuels, who stars in the current season of VH1’s Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta aired out his grievances about a scene on Monday night’s episode (July 26th) via Twitter last night (July 28th).
In the clip, his now-estranged wife Erica Mena (who was pregnant at the time of filming) told him they were having a boy. He smiles and asks,
“Are you sure?”
She begins to answer when their daughter Safire falls. Safaree Samuels stands up and laughs as Erica Mena rushes to pick up the child. She tells Safaree,
“Safaree pick her up you freaking idiot. What’s your problem?”
“She’s fine. When she’s in here, when we’re by ourselves, this don’t happen.
She carries Safire out of the room and later told cameras,
“This moment is probably setting me up to get ready for what my life is about to be. Me having to hold down my babies by myself, even when they’re hurting, because Daddy finds it to be funny. It just proves how immature he is.”
They then argue about whose fault it was that Safire fell.

After he received tons of criticism for his reaction, he hopped on Twitter to explain he never wanted the scene to air in the first place. He wrote,
“And y’all LHH editors ain’t s***. we told y’all not to air my baby falling and y’all still used it. Had us reshoot a whole bunch of bulls*** and y’all still used that. Y’all don’t have no respect, because that was not my response of me finding out I was having a boy!”
He threatened to leave the show, adding:
“That was tacky and tasteless!! It’s definitely about to be a wrap on my time with y’all. Y’all be wanting too much of ppl time to be doin dat type of wack s***!! We filmed a hr long convo for that scene and y’all chop it to 3 mins and use that and make it a focal point. Weak”
Roughly an hour before that set of tweets, he vowed to be more private about his life.
“It’s called social media let’s stop being so personal on this app. Try it for a week and let’s watch the climate change. I’m bout to be so private about my sh*t. Ain’t nobody gonna know nothing…”
Erica Mena has filed for divorce since they taped the scene, so it looks like their fallout will be a key storyline for them on the show.
