As expected, parts of VH1’s Season 4 “Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta” reunion were not pretty -- especially for Margeaux Simms. Those who watched the special and tweeted simultaneously poked fun at the reality star, who is new to the cast, after she shaved her head and wore a bright orange frock.
Some said she resembled a monk:

Others compared her to the character from “Avatar: The Last Airbender:”

A few Twitterati were shocked when Simms called her estranged husband, Nikki London, “baby.”
But Simms wasn’t the only cast member who was criticized. Some Twitter users said London resembled a fictitious character too.

Others referenced London and Simms’ strained relationship. He and Simms were still legally an item when he made his infamous shower rod sex tape with Mimi Faust.

Simms was introduced to the show after Faust made her sex tape, which led some fans to say that the only reason Simms was on television was because of Faust.
Nikko & Margeaux wouldn't even be on this show if it wasn't for MiMi ... So they both need to stfu‼️
