Black Twitter is the mvp online. From poignant hashtags like #BlackLivesMatter to hilarious ones that have us rolling like #blacksalonproblems. But you don’t want black twitter to be mad at you. Really you don’t. Just ask Shea moisture*, Kendell Jenner, Vicki Johe, Remy Ma, Pepsi… the list goes on.
Recently black twitter came for Victoria Secret for how they styled the model Zuri Tibby’s relaxed hair. The tweet that started it all was by user @CrowedByChina, the tweet has since been deleted but not before receiving over 5000 retweets:

The tweet was probably deleted for using the term “black lives matter” in jest when commonly it’s used for matters of police brutality which is no laughing matter. Yet as always with black twitter, people ran with the theme calling out other brands. ASOS was next:

Still, to be fair some of the hairstyles of the model on Victoria Secret’s site are actually pretty cute.
What do you think, are they wrong for calling out Victoria Secret for the hairstyles?
