News that “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” reality star Mimi Faust and boyfriend Nikko Smith made a sex tape nearly broke the Twitterverse on Monday. After the initial shock wore off, it wasn’t long before Twitterati began to poke fun at the reality TV starlet for her XXX film.
While TMZ released stills of the amateur porn early Monday morning, which is supposed to be released in six days, the trailer for “Mimi & Nikko: Scandal in Atlanta” had already leaked through a site called Drunkenstepfather.com.
According to the trailers that were posted on the site, Vivid.com gave the couple permission to release the seemingly promotional footage. Part of the montage shows Smith and Faust using a shower rod at one point, which is what prompted many to poke fun at the Atlanta reality stars.
Hashtags like “Shower Rod” and “MimiShowerRobStrongerThan” began to trend. Faust’s ex Stevie J was also mentioned. He and Faust had a tumultuous relationship during the first season of “LHHATL,” where he was trying to date her and current girlfriend Joseline Hernandez at the same time.
The music producer, whose real name is Steven Jordan, has essentially become gold material for memes based on his signature smirks. Some wondered what Stevie J thought about Faust’s sex tape since they have a daughter together. Others joked that Stevie J was the one who held the camera.
Some of the more "safe for work" memes and comments involving Stevie J and "Mimi's shower rod" have been posted below:

In a trailer for Season 3 of “LHHATL,” Faust asks some of her cast mates if they'd ever made a sex tape. Later, she is shown saying that she feels entirely comfortable in front of the camera. But it didn’t take long for her to regret her decision.
VH1’s cameras were there to catch her reaction when her boyfriend revealed that their sex tape had been leaked and picked up by notorious celebrity sex tape collector and Vivid CEO Steve Hirsch.
Season 3 of “LHHATL” will air on VH1 May 5 at 8/7c.
