According to TimesLIVE, Mome likened the pain of losing her friend to that of losing a brother or a sister. She said:

"I never knew the pain of losing a brother or a sibling. They say time heals all wounds but I still hurt about my dad since 1998, and now you. I guess we just soldier up and pray therapy gets us through healing."

The star discouraged her followers from using social media platforms, Twitter, particularly citing that the bird app is toxic and has destroyed many people's lives. She wrote:

"We are humans, not TV puppets, some of us have lived half of our livelihood in the public eye since Cream Cartel and being called names and discriminated against led us to suffer emotionally and mentally for years that we have become immune to a lot of things.
