Patti LaBelle’s Sweet Potato Pie Is Causing Hysteria on Social Media [PHOTOS]
Patti LaBelle is known for her sweet soul music, but it’s her sweet potato pie that has fans going bonkers on social media.
It all started with a fan’s hilarious review of the Walmart-sold dessert, which has sparked hundreds of memes and hysteria for her pastry. The gentleman, James Wright Chanel, shared his review on Facebook while he ate a slice of pie. "Patti LaBelle could cook, so I'm just thinkin' that buyin' this pie... it's hard to get in this motherf---er. Patti, what you seal this bitch with - gorilla glue?" he says. Chanel even breaks out into song, belting out lyrics from "On My Own." "Bitch I turned into Patti. You turn into Patti after eating this," he continues.
On Twitter, Ms. Patti's sweet potato pie started trending with everyone using the hashtag #pattipie. One person tweeted, "My mama had me call 5 different Walmarts for them damn #PattiPies & they all were sold out!" Another fan wrote, "Right now some Wal-Mart employee is positioning themselves to become the plug for #PattiPies..Salute."
Others took to Photoshop and created hilarious memes about LaBelle's pies. Some fans even go so far as creating photos of fellow soul icon Aretha Franklin hating on Ms. Patti's dessert. "Y'all know Patti's kitchen got roaches," reads one heavily photoshopped picture. Another photo has Vivica A. Fox liking 50 Cent's, um, groceries over Patti's pies and we'll just leave it at that.
Patti LaBelle seems to be enjoying the fandom over her delicious sweet potato pies. She even called the fan whose video has everyone running to Walmart to get themselves a piece.
