Le’Veon Bell shoots shot with IG model’s DM, gets put on blast

What is it with these Instagram models who can’t live without having to post screenshots of pro athletes who DM them trying to shoot their shot?

Unfortunately Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell learned the hard way when he tried to say whaddup to Karen Villareal through her Instagram story.

She documented the whole account (aka one message) and went on a bit of a rant about pro athletes hitting her up.

What’s wrong with saying “Hello Gorgeous”???


Karen then went on a IG story rant and called him out heavy.




WHO EVEN SAYS THAT?! Can Le’Veon Bell live?


As if this wasn’t enough, she’s still gloating around with this shit. But why?

First of all, she’s treating my dude like a practice squad player. Le’Veon is an All-Pro and could be one of the greatest running backs ever when it’s all said and done.

Not saying that she should feel inclined to give it up to him at all but why you gotta play him like this? You be the judge if Karen is really worth that risk.

Ok, we get it, you’re pretty poppin’ and all.

And you might have the OD cake too. Big deal!

Another transformation ✌️ #HumpDay. – I want to clarify that my before pic wasn’t a bad pic. I’m not hating on it. I’ve loved my lower half through its stages. My man has too, and that’s all that matters. As soon as I started training with @rhygunnar, my butt became rounder, fuller, and perkier. The point of this is to merely show you ladies that even us big butt girls have to put in the work. If not, we develop saddlebags, our butt starts to drop, and we get that under butt fat we allll love What’s most important to me is also the difference in my hamstring development. I had no hamstring muscles then, and now they’re starting to show up, thanks to those hundreds of straight leg deadlifts we did @rhygunnar – I am extremely proud of where I am physically, not because I didn’t like myself before, but because I was able to transform something we thought was pretty darn good already

That does not mean you can put someone on blast like that.

At least he wasn’t lying when he called you gorgeous.

And we understand that these types of hit ups happen to you all the time (granted that is trash).

Take me down to the paradise city where the grass is green and the girls are pretty 🌹

But why you gotta do Le’Veon like that?!

After all he was really only just tryna dish out a compliment.

Trust me when I say, society’s view of beauty is ALWAYS changing, but don’t let yours change. – Despite the trend, butts & curvy bodies weren’t always in. I used to be considered fat for having a thick lower half. Thin girls with lanky legs or big boobs had the ideal body five years ago. – My point is. You are beautiful. You are amazing. You are wonderful. You don’t need to have a certain body part to know that. You don’t need society to tell you that. You don’t need a man to tell you that. Shit you don’t even need me to tell you that 😝 Hey, if you want to go get your butt done or your boobs done (I got my twins) then have at it, but don’t do it for the wrong reasons. – You don’t need a big ass to be beautiful. Don’t allow our cultural trends to dictate that. Own what you have. And work with it. Big or small. Lumpy or toned. Love it. Adore it. And be happy. 💕 P.S. my swimsuit is @megliz.swim 👙

Is there something so wrong with athletes using social media to meet women?

With all of that being said, it should also be mentioned the Le’Veon Bell actually spoke out on the topic of athletes meeting women on social media recently.

In a 2016 interview with ESPN he said,

“Whether they think I’m attractive or like my status, lots of girls come at me on social media—lots, lots. You get used to it, and you handle it from there… I’m a guy who likes conversation, especially with women, and obviously they like doing it with me. You have your agent reach out, see what they’re about. I can take myself out of the process.”

Well, there’s that. When you’re a rich athlete, be careful who you DM.
