People do try to come for the wigs of celebrities on a daily basis and usually they walk away pretty unscathed. Twitter is the perfect place where this happens, and I wrote about this in my Stages of Twitter Celebrity Roast and Wig Snatch post.
Someone fixed their mouth to come at the Queen of Pop Culture Everything Oprah Winfrey, and they got TOLD about themselves swiftly.
Whoever this Awalk dude is got his edges snatched by Mother Oprah for questioning her hood-focused philanthropy and she basically clapped back and gave her credentials right quick. OOP. I’m sure he wasn’t expecting it though.
I pictured her sitting at home looking like this when she got that tweet:
First of all, I’d like to give her ALL THE PROPS for the amount of shade she managed to throw so classily and effortlessly. Her “And u sir?” gave me EVERYTHING I needed for breakfast, lunch and dinner. That shade was so nutritious and appetizing. In fact, “And you sir” will be my new response to all sorts of things, even if it doesn’t fit. ”Luvvie, why were you late?” “I was taking my time. #AndYouSir?” It’s packed with so much side-eye. Yes, I am here for it.
I DO love me some Oprah. I admit this. In my eyes, she can do little wrong. However, I’ve listened to folks’ critiques of her and sometimes, I can see their point. However, saying the woman isn’t charitable enough is not a fault I can agree with. If you want to come at her, take another route.
Don’t try to come for Oprah on Twitter on an issue where she can prove herself. She can probably show you receipts ‘pon receipts of what she’s done. One of my Twitter followers even acted as Oprah’s “more people” with this:
See? SEE THIS? Oprah does things. DOES. THINGS.
People will never be 100% happy with Oprah. Folks will always think she doesn’t do enough. It’s like some people just want Ms. Winfrey to walk in their house on a Tuesday afternoon and hand them a check so they can pay off all their debts. She’s philanthropic DINNAMUG and Google Oprah charity work to read up on some of the things she’s done. In fact, just click that link. I already did it for you. So instead of getting embarrassed on Twitter in front of Oprah’s 13 million followers and countless more (who saw it via RTs), do your research.
If I were him, I’d just leave Twitter. And possibly go find some sand to bury my head in since I was just publicly embarrassed and put in my place by Harpo. I’d collect my things and leave quietly, leaving my dignity behind at her feet. Instead, he’s still tweeting things that don’t matter while she’s earning millions every time she takes a deep breath. WOMP.
Meanwhile, we still don’t know what @Awalkdatalk has done for the hood.
I’m just saying. Moral of this story is that don’t get your wig snatched by a billionaire on Twitter. It’s highly humiliating.
By the way, Oprah deleted the tweet and I do wish she wouldn’t have. she probably deleted it because she felt she stooped to his level but sometimes, people need to be told about themselves. Firmly and sternly.
So whatcha think of Oprah’s response?
P.S.GERROUT OPRAH’S POCKETS!
P.P.S. All her life, Oprah had to fight… (I couldn’t resist)
And then THIS happened and I got my LIFE some more:
