On Tuesday night, one Twitter user felt moved by the spirit to express her love for Morris Chestnut and by Wednesday morning, “Morris Chestnut Appreciation Day” was the hot topic on social media.
Comedian Mel Mitchell made the tweet, writing, “They do not make ni**as this fine no more dawg. I’ve looked. They not at brunch. They not at church. They not at the club. They not at Publix. Nowhere.”
The tweet sparked a wave of shares where users hilariously expressed their similar thirst for Morris Chestnut.
“I’m here for the Morris Chestnut appreciation. It’s the skin, teeth, eyes & that smile can melt all of your blues away,” one Twitter user wrote. “He’s the type of man that looks sexy just sitting eating a sandwich & you want him to eat the sandwich cause you made it just for his fine ass.”
Just as Morris Chestnut started trending on Twitter, some men had the audacity to compare themselves to the celebrated actor and it didn’t go too well.
Men particularly in Mitchell’s comments started posting pictures and videos of themselves and it was up for debate whether they were as fine as Mr. Chestnut.
You have to give a little credit for guts, no?
Some people weren’t here for the Morris slander via comparisons.
“I know there are not men comparing themselves to Morris Chestnut…ON THIS LAND??!!!” wrote one Twitter user.
Some comparisons were worthy, considering they were fellow ’90s sex symbols who illicit similar thirst as Morris Chestnut. For example, Mitchell agreed that Larenz Tate was also worthy of praise on this #BlackLivesMatter Internet.
“I ALWAYS GOT TIME FOR LARENZ,” she tweeted along with a photo of Mr. Tate.
