men giving women advice

So there I was, minding my business on Instagram, when my eyes were assaulted by a tweet from rapper Young Thug. The 26-year-old was trying to laud singer Monica’s marriage to Shannon Brown, while also attempting to give other women advice on making a man better:

The “Best Friend” rapper’s comments come days after his fiancée found out he was cheating on her with multiple women (including a friend) by checking through his second phone. She ended up putting all of the information on blast on the Internet. Instead of owning up to his faults, it seems the rapper, born Jeffrey Williams, would prefer to put the onus on women to help their men do right.

Complete trash right? I thought so too. But you’ve probably heard worse over the years. To tell the truth, plenty of men, particularly Black male entertainers, have tried to turn themselves into relationship gurus. Unfortunately though, their advice isn’t always received well, or generally, it’s just not good. See other times famous Black men offered relationship advice that was more confusing, hurtful and sometimes sexist than actually helpful.
