GloRilla is vehemently standing by her choice to employ a personal assistant for $550 per week.
GloRilla responded to the criticism she has been receiving since publicly announcing that she would pay a potential personal assistant merely $550 per week on Monday (Dec. 19) through Twitter. The defence of the ostensibly modest wage for what would undoubtedly be a demanding job came in response to a tweet GloRilla posted on Sunday (Dec. 18), in which the “Tomorrow 2” rapper expressed her regret over being dragged through social media in recent days.
The Memphis rapper tweeted on Sunday, “I can’t wait for my culture to get together and just show love to one another. It seems like we undermine one another more than anyone else, and it’s cruel.
Following the tweet, a person going by the handle Geaux Gabrielle called GloRilla out, saying Anyways, Life’s Great… artist deserved all the criticism that was directed at her.
The user referred to GloRilla’s dubious employment offer and commented, “Girl, you are paying people starvation wages and being deservedly criticised for it.”
GloRilla shot back at the critical remark by stating that, in her opinion, the personal assistant role she is given is just as lucrative as any arduous corporate job, if not more so. Glo implied as well that, at least with the position she is offering, it would be helping the Black community rather than adding to the corporate machine.
GloRilla stated that “people would choose to work long shifts of 10 to 12 hours at a billion-dollar corporation, working [10 times] harder while standing all day, paying the same as me, maybe one or two hundred dollars more.” “But you guys are so into supporting black businesses. We need to improve.”
On December 14, GloRilla first announced the personal assistant position on Facebook. Even while the requirements for the position were merely the bare minimum of what it needed to be one’s assistant and a high school diploma, the actual duties involved with being an integral member of Glo’s team was far more demanding. The position would involve managing all of GloRilla’s daily movements, both significant and minor, as well as regular travel, all for a position that only pays about $28,600 per year before taxes.
Since then, GloRilla’s low-paying job offer has been the subject of intense debate within the hip-hop scene and has seen the rapper from Memphis being dragged all over social media.
