Remember the very special episode of Gimme a Break! where that evil bitch Samantha dresses Joey up in blackface for his performance of “Toot-Toot-Tootsie” at Nell’s church? Well, that episode replayed in some people’s heads last night when they watched Will.i.am’s pre-VMA performance with the candy-coated Fran Drescher of hip hop Nicki Minaj.
UsWeekly provided several Tweets from bitches throwing around the “racist” label at Will’s blackface:
“Will.i.am. wearing blackface!? What a racist!” fakeart123 tweeted.
Adds TSCMoncton, “Anyone notice that Will.i.am painted himself in blackface? I sure hope there’s some kind of meaning behind a stunt like that.”
“Will.i.am just sent us back 1,000 yrs… Really sir, #Blackface in front the grey ppl!” IAm_Danie wrote of his appearance.
Will took a break from scrubbing the Sharpie jizz out of his nostrils to comment on his Twatter:
1st. just because I where all black including head mask as expression and emphasize my outfit, it shouldn’t be looked at as racial…
Let go of the past. there are far more important things 2 bark about. (Jobs, health, education) not a black man wearing all black everything
Are you guys serious? my outfit set “black people back 100 yrs” choose your twits wisely. no education sets people back, no jobs, bad health
While Will.i.am was covering his face in the same shit Taylor Momsen covers her eyelids with, he had to have known that #will.i.amisthenewjoey would become a trending topic on Twitter. With that said, you know who should really be offended by Will’s overall look: MAX HEADROOM. Where’s Max’s credit?!
