Watch: 'I Milly Rock on Any Dock,' Black Twitter's #N****rNavy Tweets Will Have You Screaming

An "accidental" post by Yahoo Finance sparked both comedy and outrage.

Published January 6, 2017

  1. On Thursday evening, a typo in a tweet sent by Yahoo Finance accidentally swapped the word 'bigger' with 'nigger'
  2. Immediately, people called them out, and Yahoo Finance deleted the tweet and issued an apology
  3. Although some people believed the mistake could have been intentional
  4. Black Twitter decided to take the high road and turn an epic fail into a hilarious thread
  5. Of course there were some white people who saw the trend and called it racist
  6. But in smooth fashion, Black twitter shut that down real quick
  7. Some even explained (because apparently they don't get it) why it's not OK for white people to use the word and be in on the joke
  8. Because this joke is for us and by us and Black Twitter surely delivered a thread worth a million crying laughing emojis
