Susan Sarandon Inspires Her Fans To Troll A Black Female Activist Because Of Course

The actress continues to be the worst.

Published September 28, 2017

Susan Sarandon is like the scorpion who stings the frog helping her cross the river: it’s just in her nature to hurt people who are trying to help her. The “frog” in this scenario is Queen Bravenak, a Black female activist who, unlike Susan, isn’t seeking to blow up the country by refusing to support any politician who isn’t Bernie Sanders or Jill Stein. By expressing her frustration over the division Sanders supporters have caused in the country, Bravenak unexpectedly created a social media firestorm when she called out Sarandon for her role in the divide, and it quickly took on the expected racial undertones.

  1. Posting a collage of photos of Sarandon, Bravenak wrote, “I apologize for not saying f**k you to Susan Sarandon earlier.”

  2. Although Bravenak claimed to have created the meme as a joke, a simple retweet and reply from Sarandon spawned over 700 retweets, 5,000 likes and sent a swarm of her supporters on the attack.

  3. Not backing down from the racist banter being spewed her way, Queen Bravenak held it down the best way she could.

  4. Susan Sarandon isn’t alone, though. As Queen Bravenak pointed out, there are others who have used their platforms to sic their legions of fans against people who oppose their views.

  5. While Queen Bravenak may have received tons of hate mail, there were some people who took to Twitter in support of her.

    Looks like Susan needs to come get her fans before this gets even uglier.
