Comedian Tamera Kissen is speaking out after facing criticism for her recent viral interview with the rap duo the City Girls.
Kissen, known online as HimynamesTee, interviewed the performers after their set at Hip Hop festival Rolling Loud in California, this past weekend. Kissen’s questions and chemistry with the artists in a clip circulating online were criticized as “awkward” and unprofessional by many viewers.
In the clip, Yung Miami and Kissen realized they had met before, but are unable to recall the details, leading to an uncomfortable silence.
