Lawd! This Tuesday has been eventful for B. Simone after a clip of her talking to Nick Cannon went viral. During the interview, B. Simone says she will not date a man with a “9 to 5”, she prefers an entrepreneur. In her opinion, an entrepreneur would understand her lifestyle more.
Social media did not take her comments lightly, Many felt like she was bashing men who worked “9-5” jobs. Even Nick was blown away by her answer, adding that “there are people who have really good jobs with vocational skills.”
After the many tweets and comments on the interview, B. Simone took to Instagram to explain her “preference” a little more in an actual post and in her Instagram story, even though the damage had already been done.
What y’all think about this? B Simone said she isn’t going to date a man that works a “9-5” because he will not understand her lifestyle •••• #blackaphillyated pic.twitter.com/RdHPqbIFty

My 9-5 got me making 80k straight out of college at 22 so B. Simone can kiss my ass🤷🏾♀️ Everybody doesn’t want to be an entrepreneur & there’s nothing wrong with that ‼️

B Simone problem is not her preference, it’s her perpetuation that ppl wit 9-5’s can’t be like minded with ppl who work for themselves. You don’t always have to experience something to sympathize wit it. Also what abt ppl who use 9-5 to support their business?

Y’all, the issue with B Simone’s statement is that a CEO and a 9-5 worker is often the same person. Lol.
