BuzzFeed Apologizes For "Questions For Black People" Video

Source: BuzzFeed Youtube

Last week, we wrote about BuzzFeed was the talk of the internet. And while they’re usually applauded for their comedy, relatability or thought-provoking content, their video “27 Questions Black People Have For Black People,” fell flat. Very flat.

I wrote about it in depth, here.

But briefly, the questions were stereotypical and not those someone in touch with the Black community would ask…because most of us already know the answers. Many even speculated that the questions were written by White people.

Who knows.

But the outrage was so loud that BuzzFeed recently issued this apology.

Still, some people really weren’t here for it.

And this one took me all the way out just because Kanye looks truly crazy.
