Today, Issa Rae’s name was trending on Twitter. Initially, I assumed it had something to do with people still discussing Sunday’s episode of “Insecure.” But that wasn’t the case. Instead, it was an old co-star claiming that Issa had mistreated him and his castmates on her web series, The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl.”

Madison T. Shockley III, the man who played the role of “Fred” on the show, one of Issa’s love interests, suggested that Issa’s character is flawed— saying that he would provide specific examples later.

But it started with this:

Naturally, folks were wondering what was this tea. But after Shockley shared the story, all folks had to say was…that’s it?

See what he had to say in the very long Facebook post below. If you don’t want to read it, I’ll provide a synopsis below.

Essentially, he said Issa Rae placed a chair on his foot and pushed it down, while smiling in his face and he had to limp out of the restaurant.

That’s it.

Now, I don’t know if this is true. I wasn’t there. But I really have a hard time even imagining Issa Rae doing something like this. But even if she did…this is just not enough for us to care, honestly.

If you think I’m lying, check out the reaction from the people…via Twitter.
