Do you see what I see? This is my iphone screen shot of Asher Roth’s historical twitter f*ck up. Last night while perusing the tweets on my phone. I saw that Asher had repeated Don Imus’ “Nappy Headed Hoe” comment. Not one to normally jump the gun, I immediately hit Asher on Twitter like WTF?!? and I know I’m not the only one.
This one single statement was re-tweeted (repeated for you non twitters) over and over again by several who, like me, were disgusted that this would come from Asher. He being, an up and coming rap star and all, making mad dough off of music that was invented by nappy headed folk. Should probably not go there.
We discussed this for a bit last night and someone said that if it were Jeezy it would just be funny and we’d move on. Probably true. But Jeezy has nappy hair too. So it’s OK….or is it?
After about 25 minutes, Asher actually apologized (twice) for his stupid statement. But his apologies were lame to say the least. Like seriously dude…how could you?? *sigh* A few seconds later, all three “tweets” were history. Deleted. Never to be seen again. Well…except in the screen shots below that we all took cause we knew this was coming:
Once his “people” got word of his stupidity/career suicide attempt they immediately launched a rumor that Asher’s account had been hacked. My only question is… What hacker issues an apology?
I’m disappointed in Asher. I’m disappointed in White America who think that because our president is Black there is no racism. I’m just plain disappointed!
