Darius Rucker

When a racist tweet telling the singer to "leave country music to white folk" showed up on Rucker's Twitter feed, he couldn't resist retorting. "I read a couple of his tweets and was like, 'This guy's a real racist; he ain't kidding,'" Rucker says. "I was like, 'I have to expose this idiot.' We think we've come such a long way, and there's always somebody that wants to take a step back." Rucker replied with, "WOW. Is this 2013 or 1913?"
