Jennifer Lopez Trolled By Fellow Bronx Natives Over Viral Clip Describing Teen Years

A moment from Jennifer Lopez‘s documentary where she remembers her early days in the Bronx has gone viral, and fans are using the opportunity to troll the singer. The video, shared across social media earlier this month by Prime Video, comes from the 54-year-old’s non-fiction project The Greatest Love Story Never Told.

In the shared clip, she sits on a workout bench in a white t-shirt and leggings, tousling her hair. Speaking to the camera, the “I’m Real” singer shares some of her fondest memories. Some explicit language was censored.

“I like taking my hair out like this,” she explains. “It reminds me like, when I was 16 in The Bronx running up and down the block.” Jlo continued, “Crazy little girl who used to… be wild and no limits, all dreams.”

While the Instagram upload boasts over 60,000 likes, the comment section didn’t seem in favor of “Jenny From The Block,” with many implying she over-exaggerates her Bronx upbringing for clout.

“Girl you haven’t been in the Bronx since 1993 please stop,” wrote one user. “I thought this was an SNL skit,” detailed another, adding laughter emojis.

“She should build a community center in the Bronx, invest in cleaning it up and putting in a nice park…she could even put a statue of herself in it for her ego, and start mentoring kids growing up in The Bronx,” suggested a third account.

The Greatest Love Story Never Told documents Lopez’s creative process in her latest era, which includes an album This Is Me…Now, and a short film, This Is Me…Now: A Love Story.

“I wanted to make a record in a way I hadn’t done for a long time. When it was done, I realized it wasn’t the whole story, so I got with (director) Dave Meyers and said, ‘I don’t want to do the normal video with this, this is something very special,’” Lopez explained of the unique approach to her visual story to USA TODAY.

The multitalented pop star also announced a tour, and despite some unannounced cancelations, she was able to add dates in certain cities, including her hometown due to demand. Take a listen to This Is Me…Now (Deluxe) below.
