Piers Morgan tweeted this, and #BlackTwitter went ballistic

Piers Morgan tweeted this, and #BlackTwitter went ballistic

Liberal Piers Morgan dared to defend his race, and the segment of Twitter that self-identifies with the hashtag #BlackTwitter lit up with righteous self-indignation.

The keruffle started when leading Black Lives Matter activist Deray McKesson tweeted “I love my blackness. And yours.” Morgan retweeted the msaage adding, “I love my whiteness and your blackness.”

When a slew of Twitter users were outraged at Morgan’s tweet, he thought it would be a good idea to address them all by as one race and accuse them of racism.

Morgan continued to tweet about the incident, dismissing claims he is racist and responding to critics.

This isn’t the first time Morgan’s tweeting grabbed the attention of “Black Twitter.” In July, he outraged many for writing a piece critical of Nicki Minaj and then warning his followers by tweeting, ” Warning to Black Twitter: I don’t think you’re going to like my column about @NICKIMINAJ.”

He also drew ire for tweeting “#ALLLivesMatter” the day after the contentious Sandra Bland video came out showing Bland’s questionable arrest.

Morgan may be trying to make a point, but it sure seems as though he likes the attention.
