After a bit of due diligence, writers here at BTNOMB have unraveled the web of lies spun by the latest social media sensation, Victoria Waldrip.
Waldrip, who goes by the moniker “WoahhVicky,” is a 17-year-old girl based out of Atlanta whose claim to fame will be falsely representing herself as a woman of African-American descent and mocking the slang and lifestyle of Black people living in impoverished communities across the United States. Now, without further ado, let’s see who Vicky really is…
Some who have seen Vicky’s Instagram profile may have noticed that she seems to be living pretty well. Aside from sporting high end clothing brands and sitting courtside at Atlanta Hawks games, she does quite a bit of travelling. Among the places she’s visited are Turks & Caicos, the Dominican Republic, New York City, and most recently Los Angeles. A number of videos on her Instagram account (which in the last 24 hours has either been deleted or banned) show her staying at various locations that the average person could not afford, which piqued our curiosity. How could a teenage girl from the ‘hood manage to take these lavish getaways and rock designer brands? Well, we were determined to find out.
According to the Facebook profile in the screenshot above, Vicky claims to have been born and raised in the small town of Hiram, Georgia. However, a Google search of “Waldrip Hiram GA” only returned a street of the same name, but nothing related to the “Zone 6 Queen.”
We expanded our search to include the Atlanta area, which led us to a website for a Marietta-based homebuilding company called “Marvin Waldrip Realty.” Taking this information, we headed back to Facebook to see what we could find.
The company didn’t seem to have a business page, but we did see a couple posts where it was mentioned by “Homes by Steve Waldrip.” A search for “Steve Waldrip” on Facebook led us to one of his personal pages.
Looking through his page, we found the two images above. Not only is there a striking resemblance between Steve Waldrips’s daughter and WoahhVicky, but her name is Victoria too. If that was not already enough to confirm our suspicions, we found Victoria’s real profile through a “like” she left on one of the photos on her father’s page.
So, who is Steve Waldrip? According to the biography on his company’s website, he’s a successful homebuilding entrepreneur who founded his business in 1986, following in the footsteps of his father, Marvin Waldrip, who also owns his own homebuilding business. Coming from this type of background, it is extremely unlikely that Vicky knows what living in poverty feels like.
This is a photo of Vicky’s mom. Neither her mom or her dad look half-Black, so the alleged “25% Black” ancestry ought to be considered a lie until she provides a DNA report that proves otherwise.
Both of her parents’ Facebook profiles state they were born in and still reside in Marietta, Georgia, so she did not “make it out of Zone 6” as she often claims.
Why is this such a big deal? Because when she’s not getting paid to give advice on how to “make your melanin glow” or showing Black women how to wear their makeup in the summertime, she’s casually throwing around the n-word and impersonating “savages” on social media. She, like Danielle Bregoli, is building an entire following off of Black stereotypes in what comes off as Alt-Right satire. They are allowed to make a substantial living off the very things Black people are demonized for, though Waldrip is arguably taking it a step further.
It’s time for anyone who has even an inkling of moral fiber in them to put a stop to this foolishness.
