Kevin Gates, a rapper, and singer, startled the internet by posting a live NSFW (Not Safe For Work) Instagram story depicting a lady giving delivery on Sunday, May 07, 2023. The 37-year-old shared the video from the account @indiebirth, captioning it:
“The most beautiful thing on earth is the gift of life.”
The film was recorded at home and depicts a woman giving birth to her kid, who is finally captured by the father. While most netizens were stunned, some were perplexed as to whether the lady in question was Kevin Gates’ wife, Dreka Haynes, and the narrative depicted the birth of his own kid. However, this is not the case, since the original post’s description indicates it was posted on April 15 with the following note:
“In honor of Black Maternal Health Week, Kendra is sharing her birth video and sharing her wisdom from this incredible birth experience.”
The video quickly elicited outraged comments on social media:
“Should have learned my lesson”: Kevin Gates’ Instagram tale sparks outrage online, leaving netizens stunned.
As word spread about the IG article, some internet users turned to Twitter to warn others not to look at the narrative Kevin Gates posted. Twitterati utilized amusing memes to express their anguish. Curiosity got the best of several others, and many expressed their remorse after seeing the video.
