AceShowbiz – Mariah Carey isn’t into the April Fool’s games. The singing diva has warned her staff against pranking her on April 1 by bringing up her old tweet from a decade ago, in which she jokingly threatened to fire those who tried to “april fool” her.
In the 2010 tweet, the “Always Be My Baby” songstress wrote, “Be clear..If anyone who works for me (even if we’re kool)trys to ‘april fool’ me they are so fired.” She added in her new post, “FYI..this still applies.”
Back in 2010, Mariah specifically directed her warning to British producer/director Jasmine Dotiwala. “For the benefit of the saucy at jasminedotiwala, this includes you because technically you’ve worked for me as a director/producer before. Lol,” she added at the time.
Sharing the sentiment with Mariah about April Fool’s day, one person Me either. “I warned everyone very early I will smack the f**k outta somebody.” Another agreed with the “One Sweet Day” hitmaker, writing, “Damn! u shouldn’t play jokes in your boss anyway Ig?”
Some others, meanwhile, took Mariah’s tweet seriously. “I can’t imagine you saying this it’s such a Cruela De Vil type of tweet,” one commented, comparing her to the “101 Dalmatians” villain. Another added, “Mariah over the top diva attitude is the biggest joke. She can sing but her attitude makes her beyond ugly.”
A fan, however, has defended the mother of two, explaining, “It’s a joke she clearly knows people poke fun at her when she says she’s going to fire everyone.”
While Mariah isn’t in the mood of fooling around on April Fool’s day, she has been using her social media accounts to share some positivity amid the coronavirus pandemic. She was one of the artists who performed in the iHeart Radio Living Room Concert for America on FOX last Sunday, March 29 and tweeted after the special, “Thank you for watching me from my home to yours on #iHeartConcertonFOX Sending love to all the local heroes, health care workers and everyone on the frontlines in fighting this pandemic. Hope we brought a little bit of happiness to your day.”
She also urged her fans to “please support @FeedingAmerica and @1strcf by donating to these incredible causes.”
