Matt Rife can dish it but he can’t take it.
Just weeks after the comedian faced scrutiny for opening his new Netflix special, Matt Rife: Natural Selection, with a bit about domestic violence, he’s facing further public backlash for a comment he reportedly left on a 6-year-old’s video.
Earlier today, TikTok creator Bunny Hedaya took to the platform to call out Matt for “starting beef” with her young son. Bunny, who has amassed over 2.2 million followers, said in her video that she keeps her son mostly offline.
However, one of the only things that her audience knows about him is that he loves outer space. As a result, Bunny explained that she is often tagged in space-related videos from followers who know this about her son.
The creator recently experienced this when a promo clip for the Netflix comedy special made its rounds on TikTok in which Matt made a joke about astrology and planets.
In the bit, he made fun of women for believing in astrology, saying planets and stars do not control their futures.
“It has nothing to do with the stars, man. Just because Jupiter has a ring, and you don’t, doesn’t mean that’s who you’re supposed to look up to for all this magical advice,” Matt said.
Bunny claims she was tagged in this video a lot, and as a joke for her followers who know that her son loves outer space, the 6-year-old stitched the video from her account, correcting Matt’s knowledge of the planets. “Actually, it’s Saturn that has the rings. And it has more also. And you’re mean to girls,” he said in the video.
Now, Matt has reportedly responded to the 6-year-old.
According to Bunny, Matt left a scathing comment on her son’s stitch, writing on Instagram, “Jupiter also has rings. OH!… and Santa [Claus] isn’t real. Your mom buys you presents with the money she makes on OnlyFans. Good luck.”
While Centennial World was unable to verify the comment, Bunny included a screenshot of the alleged comment in her response video.
“While you clearly took a light-hearted video and turned it into fighting with a 6-year-old, let’s talk about the comments that you said about me,” she said in response to Matt’s comment.
“For you to assume that every single woman online makes money by showing their bodies— which like, if that’s what you do, girl, do you, like, love it. I have never made a single dollar from a man,” she quipped. “You can’t accept the fact that people may like women for their personalities.”
“You stick to circle jerking the men you need validation from,” she finished.
Though it appears Matt deleted the comment in question, thousands of TikTok users have come to her son’s defense.
“I thought Matt Rife couldn’t go any lower,” wrote one user.
“Followed bc u ate him up. I love the down fall of matt rife,” someone else commented.
Others took issue with Matt’s assumption that Bunny’s large platform is thanks to OnlyFans. “He so misogynistic for even assuming u do OF,” wrote a follower.
“When men don’t have a valid point, they always resort to saying we have OnlyFans. Which is ironic bc men are the main audience of OnlyFans lol,” noted another.
If Matt Rife can’t take the heat, he should get out of the kitchen he so badly wants women to go back to.
