The clapback heard around the world was Lisa Wu stepping out at her birthday celebration with Big Tigger on her arm. Miss Wu and Tigger have been friends for a long time, according to reports. However, the irony is that the two were photographed together just days after news broke that Tigger’s very recent ex-girlfriend, Keshia Knight-Pulliam, both secretly and swiftly married Miss Wu’s ex-husband, Ed Hartwell. Taking their friendship into consideration, there’s a good chance that the DJ would have been invited to Wu’s celebration whether Pulliam married Hartwell or not; however, we must admit that their timing was impeccable. And it’s likely that these two were hamming it up for the cameras simply because they could.

Although Tigger offered the new Mrs. Hartwell well wishes in her new marriage, we imagine that just like anyone who learned that their ex raced to the altar and married the next random she met, he felt some kind of way.

Whether intentional or not, Lisa and Tigger’s photo opp received mixed reviews. Some found it to be hilarious and praised the duo. Others pointed out the irony (read: pettiness) of it all. And then there were those who were apparently living vicariously through Tigger and the former “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star. There was a similar response to the interesting relationship that appears to be blossoming between Blac Chyna and Robert Kardashian. As you may recall, Chyna’s ex reportedly ditched her for Rob’s little sister, Kylie Jenner. Chyna is an former friend of Rob’s sister, Kim Kardashian, and clearly, they don’t have the best relationship.

I won’t lie, I got a little bit of a chuckle from both of these situations. But all jokes aside, I’m wondering if there are folks who are really out here hatching revenge plots on their exes. I’ve always felt that the best “revenge” you can get on a former partner who did you wrong is to leave like a lady and live well. Taking subtle (or not-so-subtle) jabs to get points in the petty department only makes it look like you’re still holding on. It gives your ex the impression that they still have some sort of power over you. And perhaps, in a way, they do.

Ladies, what are your thoughts on getting back at an ex? Is it ever worth it?
