The singer and rapper stood and twerked as the Lakers' cheerleaders performed to her song “Juice” at Sunday night's game against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Social media exploded with fat-shaming over her exposing her thong through a cut out in her short black T-shirt dress.

On Instagram, she said she did it out of gratitude and joy that the Lakers Girls honored her and her song at the game. She invited detractors to kiss her backside.
