Bunnie Xo Sells Out Of Shirts With Drawing Of Her & Jelly Roll That Got Middle School Student Suspended

That’s how you make the best of a bad situation.

In case you missed the story, it all started earlier this week when Bunnie Xo, wife of country music superstar Jelly Roll, found out that a middle school student here in middle Tennessee named Kalista Patrick was suspended for a drawing she made of Bunnie and Jelly Roll for a school project.

Bunnie took to Facebook to address the situation…and needless to say, she wasn’t happy:

“Y’all I need your help. There is a little girl who did a project on J & I.. she picked us because of all we’ve been through & our resilience. For the project she drew a picture of us, THE SCHOOL SUSPENDED HER because of how she drew me! She’s in middle school!

How dare they shame a child like this. Please help me find her parents & her, J & I have something we want to do for them. She lives in Tennessee.”

From there, Bunnie’s post got the attention of the girl’s mother, who revealed that the young girl has been bullied in school and admired the host of the Dumb Blonde podcast and her husband for their resilience:

“The little girl has been bullied so badly at this school that it’s even resulted in her having her wrist broken. This is more than just being bullied; this is lifetime scars that will be left on this child & the mom has pleaded with the school for someone to help them & no one would.”

The mother explained to Bunnie that her daughter wrote an essay and drew a picture depicting Jelly Roll and Bunnie’s story, hoping she would one day possess their strength and overcome her bullies and struggles.

But not only did the artwork land her in hot water, but the essay submitted was marked up, tearing down how Bunnie and Jelly’s story touched this girl.

So after hearing this, the couple stepped in to bring the story to light – which didn’t make the school very happy.

The school asked Bunnie to take the post down, claiming that the student wasn’t suspended and that Bunnie was threatening the school (which is ridiculous).

But Bunnie stood by her story, pointing out that the mother had proof of the suspension and vowing to help the young girl:

“Now that my husband & I have stepped in, the school is saying the child is lying. This honestly breaks my heart & my husband & I’s intentions behind this is to drop merch w the child’s picture she drew & give all the proceeds to that family.”

And that’s just what she did.

Bunnie launched a shirt featuring the young girl’s drawing, with the proceeds going to support Kalista.

But if you were hoping to get one, you’re too late. After launching the shirts, which were only supposed to be for sale for 24 hours, fans crashed the website and the shirts sold out in under an hour.

Pretty awesome. And hopefully all the support she’s gotten helps Kalista get through the tough times.

Bunnie Thought She Got Jelly Roll Banned From The Houston Rodeo

Cue the “Oh No” TikTok song…

Bunnie XO and Jelly Roll can easily be categorized as a power couple. Their stories to the top aren’t conventional, but they do go to show that the path to stardom isn’t always a straight one.

The rapper-turned-country-artist has worked like a mad man to get where he is today, and one of his most recent accomplishments was playing at RodeoHouston, which he described as “the biggest show of his entire life.”

Jelly Roll rocked the stage, and even shared a heartfelt moment during his performance when he asked his wife Bunnie XO to come up and join him in front of the crowd of 70,000 people.

However, something that happened once Bunnie XO was up on stage might have been “against the rules” of the Houston Rodeo, as she detailed in a TikTok recapping her moment on stage:

“Ya girl messed up. Apparently, at the Houston Rodeo, you’re not supposed to cuss. You’re not supposed to say one bad word on stage, and if you do, they’ll turn the lights off, kick you out and never let you come back again. Nobody told me this.”

In the Tiktok, Bunnie was clearly concerned as she told the story of what happened. From how she tells it, Bunnie didn’t want to get up on stage in the first place, but Jelly Roll insisted:

“Husband and I had a conversation: ‘Baby are you coming onstage tonight?’ I said, ‘No. I’m already weird and awkward as it is.’ I’m not good with a microphone or with crowds and I stick to a script that we have done for the past freaking decade.

Unbeknownst to me, my husband walks over in the middle of one of the songs and pulls me up onstage. And what do I do when he hands me the microphone? I hope you guys enjoy this little blunder over here.”

Bunnie XO then throws it over to the footage of what went down, which featured her dropping an f-bomb in front of the RodeoHouston crowd, breaking one of the event’s sacred rules:

“Houston, what the eff is up?”

@xomgitsbunnie Cant take me anywhere 🤦🏼‍♀️ #jellyandbunnie ♬ original sound – Bunnie Xo 🪄

Jelly Roll’s face after she shouted the f-word says it all.

But the good news for Bunnie XO and Jelly Roll is that the “no cursing” rule seems to be more of a guideline. A spokesperson for the Houston Rodeo told Billboard:

“I can say that they are NOT banned and we would absolutely love to have both of them back. We are a family friendly show, but there isn’t a rule in place that bans anyone for cursing.”

Phew, sounds like the power couple dodged a bullet. Turns out you can cuss at the Houston Rodeo, though I doubt Bunnie XO will if she’s ever given the chance to do it again.
