Really, it should come as no surprise that Issa Rae is clever. After all, she’s writing one of the best shows on television. Still, people must underestimate it because they stay trying her on Twitter. A few people, particularly men, have taken issue with quite a few of her tweets, labeling them “feminist”– y’all know that’s an insult. There was one that was even considered racist. LOL. Check out some of the tweets, the backlash and more importantly, Issa’s witty responses on the following pages.
But then someone questioned it, and she had to let him know.
Sh*t to do
I’m actually really sorry she deleted this one. This one might not read as a feminist post off top, but it is. You have to ask yourself why are so many negative characteristics ascribed to women? Why do women so often disrespect and downgrade their own kind, uplifting men in the process? It’s sexism and misogyny at work.
Look at this dickery
You might not be able to see it in the Twitter embed but know this was in response to a woman saying that Issa was racist for saying she was rooting for all of the Black people. Womp.
And then her recent thoughts on the nationwide sexual harassment and sexual assault conversation we’ve been having, particularly with the #MeToo hashtag.
In a tweet that’s since been deleted, someone said, “Stop queen.”
Issa responded, “Stop the d*cks, king.”
It is a good phrase to coin.
