What? Gay-Hating Twitter Trolls Accuse Issa Rae Of 'Pushing Homosexuality,' And Her Clapback Is Perfect

Seriously...stay mad.

Published December 20, 2017

Issa Rae has proven time and time again that she is a voice to be reckoned with. After Insecure and The Misadventures Awkward Black Girl, she's turning her attention to the narratives of Black men by confirming that she is currently working on a show called Him Or Her, in conjunction with writer Travon Free, centered around the life of a bisexual Black man.

As expected, the homophobes and pseudo-critics flexed their Twitter fingers and got to work, expressing their "disapproval" for the project. What they didn't know, however, is that this Black girl wasn't the one that day.

Issa, however, hit them with the perfect clapback for them to leave that negative energy in 2017.

  3. At the end of it all, the trolls' opinions on the matter are obsolete as the project is already in the works. *insert Angela Rye laugh here*

    On a more positive note, Issa, herself, has a few words to share for those eager to see the casting choices or, ultimately, be cast themselves for the highly anticipated project:
