Man, Black Twitter haaaaaates CNN anchor Don Lemon, probably because Black Twitter thinks he hates black people. (Important thing to remember: majority of Black Twitter is black). Don Lemon got slandered many times this year, about everything from his views on stop-and-frisk to his shitty haircut.

In June, Draya appeared on BET’s 106 & Park and, for some reason, the producers decided it would be a good idea to get a #AskDraya hashtag going. Big mistake. Black Twitter went in, dissing Draya’s parenting skills. (Years ago, Draya made news when she was arrested for child endangerment).
R. Kelly hasn’t been paying attention to Twitter, because recently he made the same mistake when he started a #AskRkelly hashtag. Uhhh, big mistake, for obvious reasons.

Jay Z jumping into the pool
Jay Z took many vacations this year. Jay Z probably jumped into many pools. Luckily, a photographer caught a perfect picture of Jay jumping into a pool of water during one of his vacations. Moments after the pic hit, Black Twitter did what they do best. (There’s now even a shirt that you can cop).

The Idris gaffe
Remember that time when actor Idris Elba wore a “gorgeous Giorgio Armani dress” to an awards show? Yeah, we don’t either. After some intern (we hope!) made the mistake, Black Twitter had their own fun with the concept.
One of the best things about Black Twitter is that they watch things together, whether it’s movies or sporting events. The Black Twitter moment that stands out the most was the community viewing of the made-for-TV TLC movie.
Wow. Pebbles’ mentions are in such shambles, y’all got her tweeting Bible verses during this #TLC movie. — Eric Haywood (@Eric_Haywood) October 22, 2013
One of the more disturbing Twitter moments came last month, when video of a young girl named Sharkeisha punching a girl in the face hit the Internet. Amazingly, Sharkeisha started TRENDING WORLDWIDE when Black Twitter caught the footage and sent out tweets like this:
