Don't tell me that Billy & Coleen's prenup shoot shows the beauty of Ethiopian people because hello, THEY MADE THESE PEOPLE THEIR FUCKING BACKGROUND. It doesn't take a genius to notice the macros and blurs! — Claudine Chelsea (@cldnchls) March 10, 2018


i love billy and coleen but making ethopian women and children as background props for their prenup shoot is dili okay. Good joke mga bai — Nneks (@nnekamayb) March 10, 2018
