The host of Don't Call Me White Girl podcast did not start out as a TikTok sensation, despite what people may think. Sure, Mona Love might be familiar to social media fans because of her skit "Why You Being Weird to Me" from 2021. It makes sense, as the sound has over a million video recreations on TikTok. It also got many dance remixes, and several artists sampled it, like NLE Choppa and Fabolous. People were dancing to this hilarious sexual misfortune for quite some time. But Mona Love has worked hard in show business for a long time to get to where she is. And with this podcast, she can show the world she has so much more to offer.
Don't Call Me White Girl podcast host Mona Love grew up in North Philadelphia. She reveals that people there used to call her a white girl. And this is despite her being black and proud of it. This led her to choose her social media handle to show her support for other light-skinned girls. With that handle, the aspiring comedian started her podcast in 2018 while posting video skits on Facebook. This work helped her get a cohost role in 2020 on the popular YouTube show Million Dollaz Worth Of Game.
The success that followed with "Why You Being Weird to Me" was quite a surprise. That skit was a small part of a 30-minute Instagram live, where Love was trying to make people laugh. But when she saw the reaction, she cut and reposted it. This turned out to be a great decision. Thanks to the skit's popularity, Jazmine Sullivan even offered Love to be a guest on her Grammy-winning album, Heaux Tales.
With the new recognition, Mona Love revamped her podcast and started it fresh in 2021. Don't Call Me White Girl is where she gives her uncensored opinions. She talks about anything from politics to pop culture. Sometimes she's also joined by famous guests, like Saucy Santana. And they have more serious conversations. But she always goes back to her signature lighthearted hilarious tone.
