Billboard removed Lil Nas X's "Old Town Road" from country charts & JuiceWorld omitted from the rock charts.. Please notice how they protect their spaces...— Karen Civil (@KarenCivil) March 28, 2019
So, @billboard removed @LilNasX’s ‘Old Town Road’ from its Hot Country Songs chart because they say the song doesn’t “embrace enough elements of today’s country music.”— Bishop Talbert Swan (@TalbertSwan) March 28, 2019
Translation: We can’t have a Black rapper crossing over and topping the charts.pic.twitter.com/jesozUSzlu
remember when they wouldnt allow beyoncé in country award categories for daddy lessons despite it having every country music trope from acoustic guitar lead to “yee-haw!” background ad-libs and being about guns?— your supreme, dj franzia (@hawillisdc) March 27, 2019
what if…it’s not about the music at all? lmao https://t.co/j2w7beXecv
Lil Nas X's country chart removal is discriminatory considering how hip hop production is appropriated in today's pop-country; white artists like Sam Hunt top the charts with it. Once again the message to black artists is clear: we can have y'alls shit, but y'all can't have ours. https://t.co/ccOyHHcb00— Moses Sumney (@MosesSumney) March 29, 2019
What happened with Lil Nas X is the exact reason why I say y'all shouldn't be letting trash ass artists like Post Malone do hip-hop music.— Decade of Destruction (@ComptonAzzQ) March 31, 2019
Great reminder that when you mess with a Queen, you’ve gotta deal with her bees.
Boy... Omari Hardwick kissing Beyoncé made ME uncomfortable. I can only imagine how she felt after that second one— Rossi (@RossiSings) March 31, 2019
@RossiSings, discussing the actor’s interaction with the singer during Saturday’s NAACP Image Awards. As Hardwick went to accept the award for Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series for his role in “Power,” he hugged and kissed Beyonce. Hardwick then went for a second kiss, leaving her looking uneasy and fans saying he invaded her space.
Omari Hardwick was ready to risk it all for a Beyoncé hug and kiss— Kozza (@Kozza) March 31, 2019
I know what Omari Hardwick did to Beyonce with the kisses may seem trivial to some of you, but that's what literally happens when we greet some of your dads, brothers, boyfriends, colleagues and bosses.— the smell of water (@ohphillia) March 31, 2019
There are boundaries and he encroached... it's disconcerting
I can’t stop watching the video of Omari hardwick kisding Beyoncé and that second kiss was sooooo uncalled for and disrespectful.— SpeakingofOzioma🌹 (@DallasEmpire) March 31, 2019
The video of Omari Hardwick and Beyonce is definitely awkward as hell, but I think that’s it. An awkward interaction. I don’t get what this extra stuff is all about 🥴— IMAGINE. OUT NOW! (@_Azryah) March 31, 2019
I dont presume to know how Beyonce feels but...ughhh that Omari Hardwick shit reminds me of encounters I've had with some men. Then you dont want to say anything because then people will look at you like you're overreacting, so you just suffer being uncomfortable.— Larry Fisherman (@D0MXNXQUE) March 31, 2019
@OmariHardwick 2nd kiss was unnecessary & uncomfortable. Don’t do that again😡. We women so often get touched, kissed, groped & poked in instances exactly like this (at an event, at work, etc). WE DON’T LIKE IT. It’s time to no longer let these moments of discomfort slide. (1/3) https://t.co/ezFrdhvBsU— Farhana (@farhana_io) March 31, 2019
I’m a Taurus, I like stability. The idea of picking my bedtime things up and moving them 10 feet is horrifying.
I know what all these words mean but cannot make sense of how you have put them together— John Maguire (@JMaguireCritic) March 22, 2019
@JMaguireCritic, joking about Twitter user @steveohrourke’s admission that he and his wife don’t sleep on the same side of their bed every night, instead swapping as they please. The idea had others dumbstruck and saying that they wouldn’t dream of suggesting this to their partner.
Just want to add my voice to yes this is weird but I’m happy you two weirdos have found each other— Kate McEvoy (@ImKateMc) March 22, 2019
I feel like this tweet is designed solely to outrage because I can’t believe it is real— Dodge (@seidodge) March 22, 2019
So long as there is consent, what you two get up to is your own business. Just don't tell me you share toothbrushes.— Won'tBSilent (@RHethey) March 24, 2019

Same. We also alternate beds between our room and the spare room 👍— nic owen (@nicowen) March 24, 2019
I thought I was a tolerant and progressive sort. But you have found my limit. A stone throwing mob needs to run you and Amy far beyond the city walls before this contagion spreads— Philip Boucher-Hayes (@boucherhayes) March 23, 2019
I can’t deal. Too much complexity. I might need to leave Twitter.— Skootaman (@Skootaman) March 22, 2019
Steve, I live on my OWN and still have my ‘spot’ in bed, at the table, on the sofa.
This better not be another instance of social media duping me into thinking something is good.
Update: I just tried the orange dreamsicle dipped cone from DQ and it’s prob the best thing to ever happen to me since my daughter was born 😂— skillet biscuit (@boehm_maddie) March 30, 2019
@boehm_maddie, reacting to the ice cream cone select Dairy Queen locations are offering on the spring menu. The treat features DQ’s iconic vanilla soft serve dipped in an orange-vanilla coating. The cone will spread to more DQ stores May 1.
Dairy Queen is open until midnight. I’m getting me a dreamsicle dipped cone— Vu Ly (@vubus) March 30, 2019
the dreamsicle cone is delicious— Emily (@emmmilymm) March 29, 2019
These tales of white privilege are sobering considering you can name an opposite outcome for each situation.
@AnnAnnChe, responding to @Freeyourmindkid’s call for white people to share things they’ve gotten away with that a person of color couldn’t. Users replied using #MyWhitePrivilege and told stories about attacking cops and getting caught underage with alcohol and weed without consequences.
Not really outrageous, but I had chronic headaches (later diagnosed w/ a brain tumor) and not once did a doctor think I was faking it. A friend of mine who is a black man was left screaming in agony with kidney stones because they thought he was seeking drugs. #MyWhitePrivilege— Geraldine (@everywhereist) March 30, 2019
Called the police in Allston MA when I lost the key to my bike lock. (White) firefighters showed up — didn’t ask for any id, proof that the bike was mine, or proof that I lived at that address — and cut the u-lock off without question. #MyWhitePrivilege— Adrienne Carmack (@adrienne_the_3) March 30, 2019
pulled over for a burned-out taillight. never once did it occur to me to think about where my hands were, or how fast I went for my wallet. by the end of the encounter, the state trooper and I were both standing by the side of my car, cracking jokes. and that is #MyWhitePrivilege— Jeff Tiedrich (@itsJeffTiedrich) March 30, 2019
