Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya Moore is struggling to clear the air after an attempt to shade actress Lupita Nyong’o went horribly wrong.
As recently reported by the Inquisitr, Kenya Moore was reportedly not happy when the Academy Award-winning starlet refused to take pictures.
Kenya even took to her Twitter account to call Lupita out for her alleged behavior.
“@Lupita_Nyongo refused 2 take pics After 2 movies #girlbye”
When one of Moore’s followers asked her if she was shading Nyong’o, she had this to say about the encounter.
@ThatMattSiegel no I was a huge fan!!! There were 1000 A listers being humble it was disappointing that’s all. I want 2 always stay humble

In retrospect, there is nothing in those tweets that directly imply that it was Kenya Moore herself with whom Lupita Nyong’o refused to be photographed. Those initial tweets by Moore certainly seemed to imply to the public that she was personally snubbed.
However, it is now painfully clear that if Kenya Moore was hoping to benefit from this alleged diss, her plan backfired to an embarrassing degree. Much of the backlash over this incident has hit Kenya herself.
The consensus seemed to be that the actress had every right to not be photographed with Kenya. There were even those who cheered Lupita for refusing to have her picture taken with the offended reality tv starlet.
Kenya seems to have realized that she is looking none too good because now her story has changed. Or rather, Moore is working to clarify why she was upset with Nyong’o.
Funny how a neg story gets legs. I NEVER asked 4 a photo my friend did & was denied. #Alisterproblems LOL still proud of her

Unfortunately for Kenya Moore, this may be a “too little, too late” situation.
Although reports of the social media comment are circulating, it seems to have done little to alleviate the backlash.
Some are wondering why Kenya Moore waited until after all of the negative commentaries to attempt to make the public understand what actually happened with Lupita Nyong’o.
Others are wondering if the changing story means that Kenya never actually rubbed elbows with Lupita at all during the night.
As for Lupita Nyong’o, she hasn’t addressed the situation at all.

Nyong’o was recently spotted at upscale Los Angeles eatery Lucques. She wore a blue-themed outfit that managed to pull off a simultaneously laid back and yet highly fashionable look.
Though she’s not up for any awards this year, it’s clear that Lupita Nyong’o still very much enjoying her time in the spotlight.
