    Fans aren't vibing with Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss, who asked her co-stars to wear "vibrating panties" to a Broadway play in New York.

    On Sunday's episode of RHOA, Burruss gave each of her co-stars a pair of vibrating underwear and encouraged them to wear it to the play, while giving away the controller to someone else. Some of the women, whose husbands attended the play with them, enjoyed the experience, while others hated it — particularly Marlo Hampton, who told Burruss her games went too far.

    The play in question, "Thoughts of a Colored Person," is the first Broadway play written, directed by, and starring Black men. Produced by Burruss, the play looks at Blackness in America through the lens of seven men in Brooklyn.

    Like Hampton, fans on Twitter were not happy about Burruss' vibrating panty stunt, with one fan saying, "I still don't understand why Kandi want[s] the women wearing vibrating panties to a play about Black men's trauma."

    Burruss defended herself in the wake of the backlash, saying, "I was just trying to add some fun to the trip. Some of y'all too uptight!"

    Real Housewives of Atlanta airs on Bravo Sundays at 8:00 PM. Episodes are available to stream the next day on Peacock.
