B. Simone’s, Baby Girl: Manifest the Life You Want. came under great scrutiny after the internet found out she plagiarized portions of her newly released book, some sections word-for-word.
The book became the center of a plagiarism scandal when a content creator revealed that the B.S. stole her work. “It’s been brought to my attention that @thebsimone is selling a book with MY content in it WORD FOR WORD. She is making a profit off of plagiarized content of smaller content creators and calls herself an entrepreneur,” Boston lifestyle influencer, Ell, wrote on Instagram. “Here’s a shot of MY content and then Her book… This is not entrepreneurship. It’s disgusting.”
The Wild ‘n Out star got dragged up-and-down Black Twitter for this revelation.
B. Simone recently uploaded a video on IGTV saying that she’s taking full accountability and is righting her wrongs with the small creators whose work was stolen.
“I had a vision to create a book for young women to change their mindset and have them manifest because that is how I feel I became successful in life,” Simone continued. “Me and my team outsourced. We hired a team that we trusted. That we thought could bring my vision to life and they did a lot of things without my knowledge.”
She explained that the situation is now a legal issue and couldn’t talk too much about it.
