“Last night was mad real,” she began her caption to the carousel post. “Thanks to my boyfriend for throwing me this amazing party ! Thanks to my parents for the juvenile and Mannie connect (legendary ) and I wanna thank everybody who came and partied with me ! Y’all some real ones,” she concluded the post, adding a string of photos from her ’90s and early aughts-themed party.

Videos and photos from the night captured the entire party, which was held indoors. There was hardly a single mask in sight, and no social distancing. Reginae faced a lot of criticism for the party, and some took to social media to air their frustrations. “Is corona not in Atlanta?” one person pondered on Twitter. “They was tooooo damn live at Reginae’s birthday party.” Another person took to social media and added, “Reginae party cute and all but all I keep thinking about is COVID.”
