John Legend’s wife Chrissy Teigen inspired women on social media to take pride in their appearance by posting pictures of her stretch marks, lines on the skin that appear for a variety of reasons. Thousands of women liked the photo and followed up by posting their own under the hashtag #LoveYourLines.
The movement reminded us of a telling moment from Katt Williams 2006 stand up The Pimp Chronicles, where he also tells women that they shouldn’t feel any hangups about their “tiger stripes.”
“If your man got a problem with your stretch marks I suggest you stop f*ckin’ with b*tch n*ggas. That’s what I say,” he says. “I think I speak for all real n*ggas in attendance today when I say we ain’t got time to worry about no sh*t like stretch marks. We know they either came from one of two things: either you was big and got small, or you was small and got big. Either way we f*ckin.”
