Hashtag: shots fired.
Grammy-winning rapper Bobby Ray Simmons Jr., a.k.a B.o.B., went on a Twitter rant earlier today, blasting black Twitter users for condoning violence, rioting, and looting in the wake of the death of Michael Brown, the unarmed teenager fatally shot by a police officer.
“So Antwon will shoot 12 people in a week and y’all be like FREE TWON!’ A cop shoot a nigga and y’all riot… ok… #facts,” he tweeted.
“Y’all ain’t gonna REVOLT!!! I bet y’all won’t overthrow the government of nothing!! All you gonna do is TWEET!”
Feeling the pressure from Twitter users, B.o.B deleted his controversial tweets.
Bob tweets were truth, he had to delete them cuz ppl couldn’t handle the truth smh

However, B.o.B.’s Twitter rant calling out blacks on social media for supporting useless looting and violence is very similar to this black man’s rant about the madness in Ferguson:
