Show Transcript
Happy Friday, Black Twitter!

It’s ya girl, Genie Lauren. Today, I’m tweeting for people who angry eat.

You know how normal people emotional eat?

They get all weepy, and cry into their pint of butter pecan ice cream while dipping thin mints in egg nog, or whatever.

Yeah, that’s not me.

HOWEVER.

When I’m angry? I want all the fried food. Fried super hard.
I want the crispiest crunchiest chicken.
I want the spiciest kettle cooked potato chips.
I want the hottest hot sauce.

And, I want to gnash on all of it, just angry as hell. Getting all the angry calories.

That’s the only emotional eating I know.

Anyhoo.

It’s about time for me to announce this week’s winner for Genie’s Wishlist, but before I do that lemme just mention, if you subscribe to the YouTube channel, but don’t make your subscriptions public. . . I can’t see you there, so you won’t be able to be considered to win the prize.

Now, whether you’re watching or listening to the show, subscribe and rate it. I’d appreciate it.

Okay, now . . . wait a minute.

*snaps*

And, now it’s time to pick the winner for Genie’s Wishlist.

Okay, so. . . unless you’ve been under a rock for the past few days, you know that racist white people who troll on Twitter have decided to try to “infiltrate” black twitter by creating accounts images of black people to pretend their black.

Like they think they’re going to trick black people into thinking they’re black and. . . make Twitter implode by getting black people to argue. . . it doesn’t make sense.

Like. . . Hi. Hello. Have you met Black Twitter?

Black Twitter argues everyday, b.

If a day goes by in which Black Twitter doesn’t argue about something, it’s a slow news day.

That’s just the facts.

Also, how they thought Black Twitter getting into arguments would lead to the downfall of Twitter at large is like. . .

Huh?

Black people don’t own or run Twitter. . . we can’t even get people to pay us for our own tweets . . . how did we get here?

I’m made of questions.

The funniest part of all of this is definitely the fake accounts these racist white trolls are making.
@FakeBlackAvis is doing a great job of keeping up with all the Twitter accounts from white people pretending to be black.

And, I mean, you can spot them from a mile away because they’re all using way too much forced AAVE, but if you want to save time and just block them early, go to @FakeBlackAvi’s profile and you can find them all there, so you can block, mute, filter, and move on.

This won’t be the first time racist white people try to infiltrate Black Twitter, and it won’t be the last, but. . . I do wish they’d realize who they’re messing with. . . in the meantime, we can get these jokes off at their expense.

Have you seen a fake black twitter account out in the wild? Did they tweet you and try to manipulate you into starting drama in the tweets? Slide in my DM’s like “blap blap blap!” . . . No, I’m playing. Get at me in the comments on goodmorningblacktwitter, or tweet me @gmbtshow. I would really like to see this.

It’s freezing, but the weekend is getting warmed up. Enjoy it, and I’ll see you back here next week. Have a good morning, Black Twitter.
