“Dana is so thirsty for posting,” the fan wrote on White’s post about Khabib Nurmagomedov’s recent meeting with Vladimir Putin.
“Thirsty is posting multiple pics on the beach in a bikini,” White responded, criticizing the woman for posting pictures of herself in a bikini at the beach — where bikinis are generally worn. “That’s DEHYDRATED.”
From there, many of White’s followers chimed in, making comments about the woman’s race and more.
