The “Love and Hip Hop New York” star posted a recent snap of himself sitting on a park bench in sneakers, a pair of black shorts and a shirt that was plastered with the words “Retired Hot Boy.” Harris posed with a straight face as his 7-year-old son Omere Harris captured the photo.

While many of the reality star’s IG followers commented on his “handsome” appearance, there were others who spotted an ankle bracelet wrapped around his right leg.
“That damn ankle monitor I hated that s–t especially during the summer 😒,” one fan wrote underneath Mendeecees’ post. Another followed up with, “Welcome home bro yooo when do you get that ankle bracelet off?”
“😷 damn bro I really hate they got that ankle monitor on you like a dog,” another person said. “Damn I hope you get that ankle bracelet off bro,” commented another person.
