Trick Daddy does not think his lupus is funny. More details inside…
Trick Daddy was recently arrested and charged with cocaine possession and driving under the influence in Miami. However, it was not his arrest that caught people’s attention the most. Rather, it was the hip-hop star’s mugshot that got people talking as they couldn’t help but make fun of his appearance in the shot. Many people made jokes and laughed about his appearance in the photo, but a lot of people did not realize that Trick has been battling from lupus.
Trick Daddy, who is diagnosed with Lupus, was noticeably losing a lot of his hair and having bloodshot eyes. His skin also looked way different from when he was still healthy. “Trick daddy is 45 years old & he looks breaths away from death. Like every single organ is failing,” one mocked the star. “Trick Daddy went from ‘hood fine’ to ‘hood booger’ How did we get here??” another said, while one other asked, “He got arrested at the barbershop?”
Trick Daddy, who has now been freed, is apparently well aware of all the comments made about his look and decided to hit back all at once. He said on his Facebook account, “Let me get this right .. you lie on me .. make fun of the fact that I Have lupus … and all this just for likes .. thank god im strong .. everything is funny until it hits close to home .. my feelings don’t hurt easily I’m too worried about waking up tomorrow.”
According to the Lupus Foundation of America, lupus is “a chronic (long-term) disease that can cause inflammation and pain in any part of your body. It’s an autoimmune disease, which means that your immune system attacks healthy tissue instead. Symptoms can include swelling and pain in your skin, joints, and internal organs.” It’s also the same condition Toni Braxton and Nick Cannon currently have.
During a former interview with “The Breakfast Club,” Trick said that he stopped taking his lupus medication and self-medicated with cocaine-laces joints instead.
