A day after a fan criticized Latto for seemingly wearing the same underwear in two different outfits, the Atlanta rapper put her underwear up for sale on eBay, and some fans have already begun trying to buy it.
On Sunday, Lato was called out by a fan who shared two recent photos of her side-by-side, asking the rapper if she “can’t afford new underwear.” Rato replied, calling the woman the “underpants cop.” On Monday, she tried to explain that she has many of the same style of panties as she gave fans a “visit” of her panty drawer.
“Since my panties didn’t match yesterday, I decided to show you my panty drawer,” Latto said, sharing that Target’s $5 Cheetah-print underwear is on sale.
According to Latto, she has several of the same underwear in the same color and style, and she buys them in bulk, especially when traveling. Latto gets a lot of trolling online, but she’s one smart woman, and Latto auctioned off a cheetah-print lingerie on eBay.
“Live auction on eBay because I can’t wear it twice,” Latto wrote while sharing a screenshot of the listing, which starts at $0.99 with free shipping.
Within minutes, many bids pushed the price up. By early evening, the big name had hit $60,000, and within hours, it had risen to $90,800.

The auction page was shut down twice by eBay, but it was still listed at $93,100 as of Monday night. eBay also got involved after fans reported the used sweepstakes page.
“Hi, thank you very much for bringing this to our attention. Please note that we do not allow used underwear to be listed on our website. Thanks for your help [to] Make eBay a safe place to buy and sell. We thank you,” one agent wrote.
Latto had a big year last year, thanks in part to her collaboration with Mariah Carey on “Big Energy,” on her 777 album. The song peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, making the Atlanta rapper her first top 10 single. As if that wasn’t enough for her, the song was also nominated for a Grammy in the Best Melody Rap Performance category.
