Claudia Gadelha: ‘Nothing nice to say? STFU! How bout dat?’

gadelha-nothing-nice-stfu-bout-dat

After receiving rude comments on a picture that she posted to he Instagram, Claudia Gadelha channeled her inner “Cash me outside” girl. How bout dat? She posted a video response to the comments and sounded like a woman/athlete/public figure that was fed up with harassment.

Each time someone with a blue check next to their name posts something, we see the disgusting side of society.

Gadelha went on a profanity laced scolding, telling people to use the most basic of manners.

“I posted a picture with a really good friend of mine and people are really talking a lot of f*****g shit. Dude, you know… sometimes I don’t even know what to say. You know? Shut the f**k up. Shut the f**k up! If you don’t have nothing nice to say, just don’t say anything motherf*****s. Don’t say anything. How bout dat?”

Do not make Claudia angry. You wouldn’t like her when she’s angry.
