Comments made by popular rappers T.I., left, and Nelly to racially insensitive gossip tabloid TMZ landed them in hot water with social media collective “Black Twitter” today.
Black Twitter went IN on television pitchman Nelly for promoting Cheerios instead of commenting on the police shooting death of 18-year-old Mike Brown. Nelly’s followers roasted the 39-year-old former rapper after he posted a photo of himself holding an “iced out” box of Cheerios on his Twitter.com account today. The unarmed Brown was shot to death after scuffling with a Ferguson, Mo. police officer on Saturday. Nelly and his family moved to nearby St. Louis, Mo. when he was a young boy, and he still owns a home in the area.
