10 Times Twitter Put Celebrities On Blast In 2017

If #BlackTwitter is against you, the battle is already lost.

Published November 3, 2017

  1. Tinashe

    In an interview back in June, Tinashe blamed colorism for the reason her music doesn’t reach Beyoncé or Rihanna sales. #BlackTwitter was having none of it:

  2. French Montana

    No one was happy when the Diddy signee lashed out at a Twitter user who questioned French's relevancy. He claims it was in defense, but the general response was not pleasant:
