There are certain times when the folks on Twitter make me shake my head vigorously. Anytime it comes to the death of a celebrity, some of the people on Twitter act like complete dummies with no home training or couth. Folks make me pull out my post on the Stages of Celebrity Grief on Twitter VERY often. People don’t even know how to act if the celebrity died years ago.
Aaliyah left this Earth 10 GOOD years ago. A decade. And folks ain’t figured out how to act about her being gone yet. Like Drake, who tweeted:
Can someone tell Lumiere that Aaliyah didn’t know his stranger bish self? WHO GON’ TELL HIM? Drake’s Canadian ass was NOT known by Aaliyah before she passed. He was like 12 or 13 and wasn’t e’em on Degrassi yet. Or was he? Either way, she ain’t know him!
Why do folks always gotta act so familiar? Drake was up there acting like Aaliyah’s his holy mentor and guardian. Lemme find out that God made Aaliyah Drake’s Heavenly Sister. Apparently, while he’s on stage rapping like a diabetic sloth, Baby Girl’s cheering him on. I don’t think so. Wheel Chair Jimmy might wanna go have a seat cuz… NAWL! Just… NAWL.
I don’t have time.
As if that wasn’t foolish enough. Y’all know how much people on Twitter do THE MOST ALLA TAHM??? ALL. THE. TIME. Too many times on Twitter, folks have no boundaries when it comes to jokes and just BEING in general. The 10th anniversary of Aaliyah’s death is proving to be an occasion for the couthless and the day just started. By 1am, central time, the worldwide trending topic was… (wait for it)…
#AaliyahsAirplanePlaylist as a worldwide trending topic means that was the most talked about topic on Twitter at the time GLOBALLY.
WHAT IS THE MATTER WITH YOU PEOPLE??? This is why a lotta folks can’t have nice things. And need perpetual prayer. I had to spray my computer with holy water and log off Twitter.
NO MA’AM! I will NOT participate in that awful and terrible topic. Folks need boundaries in their lives. Everything isn’t meant to be made into dirty dozens. Insensitive and just downright mean.
And apparently, this fool took offense to it folks’ outrage of the trending topic:
Yes, because a global terrorist and an R&B singer are the same people. (-__-) Not saying Osama jokes are right but please shut the hell up! This comparison is dumb. As hell.
Anyways, RIP to Aaliyah. 10 years gone but her music still lives on! This time last year, I wrote a “5 Reasons Why We Still Love Aaliyah” post. So getchu some.
Oh. And checkout DumbestTweets.com. I have a feeling I’ll be posting A LOT there today from all the ridiculous tweets that’ll happen from today.
