They're not really feeling this beloved!
Iyanla Vanzant Blasted For Filming "Iyanla Fix My Life" Episode In FergusonRemember when we told you about Iyanla Vanzant traveling to Ferguson, Missouri to document the unrest following the unarmed shooting death of Mike Brown??? Well it looks the life coach has released photos from her trip including the one below of that shady azz police chief (ya know the one who tried to smear Mike's name with convenience store video???) and Mike Brown's uncle Pastor Ewing touching hands to "help them on their path to healing." Ma'am... Twitter has since gone into a frenzy with people claiming that the Iyanla really isn't trying to help and is instead being an opportunist.
Let's call it what it is: @IyanlaVanzant is a raging opportunist looking to exploit another's development for the sake of a check & ratings. — cp (@cultA_KlAsh) August 22, 2014

What do YOU make of all this??? Is Iyanla really trying to help is or she just trying to profit off pain???? See what else Twitter had to say about Iyanla Vanzant's trip to Ferugson after the flip.

You won't convince me that Mike Brown's mom is ok with this mess @OWNTV is doing. @IyanlaVanzant and @Oprah should be ashamed. Disgusting — NaijaGal (@Naija4LifeO) August 22, 2014

There are people out here doing real work, trying to make moves and @IyanlaVanzant is making a mockery of it to "fix" racism in a special — Kriss Fett (@insanityreport) August 22, 2014
