So, LGBTQ rapper CupcakKe , who’s known for rapping about frank sexuality and body positivity, sent out a scary tweet late last night stating “im about to commit suicide.” and then also posted a screenshot to her Instagram of her tweet with this caption: “Thank you for everything y’all have done for me I really appreciate it.” Obiously her fans freaked out and people were very worried for CupcakKe, who’s real name is Elizabeth Harris, but you’ll all be happy to know that she is now safe in a Chicago hospital.
After CupcakKe posted that tweet, more than 12,000 people — including celebrities like Kathy Griffin, Iggy Azalea, and CupcakKe collaborator Charli XCX — tweeted messages of support to her. Some also alerted the Chicago police report, who went to check in on CupcakKe. The BBC reports that Chicago police checked in on her several times and, when they got in touch with her, took her to an area hospital. The Chicago Police Department tells the BBC, “Officers went out a few times to check on Elizabeth. Once they got in touch with her, they took her to hospital — not for her injuries — but for a mental evaluation.”
We’re so happy to hear CupcakKe is safe and sound and that she’s getting the help she needs! Send Elizabeth the love she deserves today.
