GloRilla has shared — at the risk of being ridiculed — a recent discovery that she believes threatens the fate of her Thanksgiving dinner.
Ahead of opening up about what she just found out, GloRilla admitted that she expected fans to mock the fact that she apparently didn’t know ham was a pork product. She said she stopped eating pork about five months ago.
“I know y’all gone laugh at me & call me slow & shit but ima admit to it first & still say YO MAMA,” GloRilla’s tweet began. ” but anyways, I haven’t eaten any pork for almost 5 months now, tell me why I just found out ham is pork !!!!!!!”
She added: “Idk Wtf ima eat for thanksgiving now.”

The reaction from fans was just as GloRilla expected, with many unable to believe that she didn’t know what ham was; and others wondering what animal she thought the meat came from.

A handful of fans focused on the more pressing issue of helping GloRilla find a Thanksgiving alternative.

This isn’t the first time that GloRilla’s candor has made headlines. One Twitter user responding to her revelation on Saturday (November 19) called back to the British radio interview during which the “Tomorrow” rapper made a similar confession.
During an October appearance on UK station Kiss FM, on-air presenter Henrie Kwushue explained that London has a fox problem, with the city’s animal population prowling the streets at night and getting up to all sorts of mischief. But GloRilla was shocked to find out they weren’t fictional.
“Foxes? What’s that?” she said. “The animal, fox? Y’all got them out here? That’s normal? So they like dogs? So y’all not scared of them? So they orange? I can’t believe it. I never even knew foxes was real.”
As the clip began going viral, GloRilla shared the moment to her IG stories with laughing emojis.
This week has been filled with light-hearted moments for the fast-rising Memphis rapper. Just days after the release of her debut EP Anyways, Life’s Great, GloRilla landed her first Grammy nomination for “F.N.F. (Let’s Go),” which is in the running for Best Rap Performance.
The song also earned Glo a shout out from Nas, who named checked her on the King’s Disease III bonus track “Til My Last Breath,” where he raps: “I’m applying pressure, I see why she prеssed (Why she pressed)/ When she with me she GloRilla, FNF (FNF)/N-A-S, I’m steppin’ ’til my last breath (My last breath, yeah).”
“I love that so much, Nas is a big legend for real,” Glo told TMZ. “That’s super big. Like I never in a million years.”
GloRilla is next set to make her debut performance at the 2022 American Music Awards, which are set to air on ABC on Sunday (November 20) at 8:00 p.m. EST.
