If you know anything about Erykah Badu, it’s that she’s one of the deepest thinkers in music, and is usually a pretty calm, cool, and collected individual. But as Dave Chappelle pointed out in Dave Chappelle’s Block Party, something most don’t realize about her is that she is funny, and not just serious all the time, and she likes to crack jokes.
This past weekend, after a follower decided to give her two cents about why you shouldn’t see Erykah Badu in concert, the singer caught wind of the shade and threw a major dose of it back. It went something like this:
ERYKAH: @HoldenSaysWha sit yo window seat head a** down.
FOLLOWER: @fatbellybella did I hit a nerve? lol. Calm ur fat, fake righteous a** down “Fat belly bella”
ERYKAH: @HoldenSaysWha long neck a**

“Lol sorry y’all . This is what happens when BULLY’s get drug.”What if I don’t want to ignore the insult ? What if I wanna drag her ? It Tickles me. Jeeeez, I’m sorry . Nobodies perfik.There was NO EXTREME TWITTER BEEF. After being insulted -i chose an ol school remedy. SCO’N. chops bullies down to size. Helps us laugh.
As for the Twitter follower, she told a friend:
“Girl..i made that lame a** b**h relevant again..it was NOT my intention..I was just venting. F’ a fat belly bella..lol”
Personally, I’m from Chicago, the “You got jokes, huh!?” capital of the world and home of the “Lookin a** boy” song that was popular a few years ago. Therefore, I don’t know if I see Erykah really being malicious as much as I just see her trying to be comical. But taking the “I was bullied” stance? I wouldn’t say all that. The follower was just the usual Twitter follower trying to state would could have been a helpful opinion, but did so in an as usual, less than helpful way. It might have been best to ignore @HoldenSaysWha. But I will say, kudos to Erykah for not resorting to calling this girl out her name after homegirl called her a “b***h” and a “ho” multiple times. Either way, Twitter strikes again.
What do you think?
