1000-lb Sisters star Tammy Slaton may be about to learn the hard way that you can’t go into business with everyone. The reality star has been getting a lot of backlash since her merchandise store prompted customers to “donate” instead of purchase items and reports came out that the artists creating the merchandise were unpaid. Now, her business partner, Quincy, is threatening to expose her.
‘1000-lb Sisters’ star Tammy and Quincy’s merchandise store is shut down
After the success of 1000-lb Sisters season 2, Slaton wanted to make some extra money, so she partnered with Quincy to create a merchandise store. Fans quickly noticed that the creators who actually made the art for the merchandise weren’t getting paid. People also started questioning why there was only a “donate” button on the site and no way to actually make purchases.
“Let me clarify everything, we just started the merch shop and we had our shop button and cart feature on there but since we can’t accept any cash payment because we aren’t verified for online retailing yet,” wrote Quincy in an Instagram story captured here. “Also another thing all people who make art work don’t ask to get paid but to simply get a follow or noticed by Tammy!!”
Despite Quincy’s claims that some artists didn’t want to be paid, the artists themselves said otherwise.
“I wasn’t being unfair at all, just saying how my artwork is being passed off as someone else’s when I spent time doing it, and I’ve now been blocked yet my design is still up on your website, not really fair at all, all I wanted was credit for it, that’s all,” wrote one artist on Instagram.
The store has since been shut down.
Quincy threatens to expose Tammy Slaton
Last week, Quincy went live on Instagram and accused Slaton of being disrespectful towards her fans and people that work with her. During the live, he promised to expose even more things about Slaton over the weekend.
However, when the weekend rolled around, Quincy just made more threats. He posted what appeared to be a message from news outlet, TV Seasons and Spoilers, asking him if he wanted to do a formal interview about Slaton.
“Stay Tuned,” he wrote over a photo of the direct message. “Tammy this could of (sic) been avoided.”
“We locked in!!!” he captioned the photo. “This could of been completely avoided but everything will be discussed on all of the interviews + I want to give you guys a brief of my background so you can get to know me more better.”
He went on to say that he has a lot of things in the works.
“I’m so happy a lot of you came to me and told me your experiences with Tammy Slaton,” he continued. “Everything + screenshots will be exposed. I’m also gonna be clearing up all allegations against me and explain to everyone everything in which I already have been just not in front of a big crowd because everyone has been steering away and making their own plans of plotting accusations inside their cult fb groups. 😒 I’ll be shedding light on every situation that has been misinformed so please bare with me and this time Tammy isn’t getting away. (No puns).”
