Jill Scott's Twerking Tweets Offends Fans


Everyone has an opinion on twerking.  And I’m convinced, everyone at least once, has twerked in the privacy of their own home.  But apparently Jill Scott thinks it was invented in a bathroom.

Big deal. Jill Scott made a funny. Well at least attempted to?  Apparently people didn’t find it that funny.  The “African descent” reference ruffled some of her follower’s feathers.






Ok, maybe Jilly From Philly isn’t a fan of twerking. Truth be told, there are plenty of people who aren’t.  I doubt Scott meant to offend, but of course in our world, everyone is easily offended.

    I thought it was funny…and not in the least offensive. Twerking came from someone of African Descent….she didn’t say Africans…it could be Black Americans, a sista from the islands, a black woman whose also of latin descent….who is really taking this stuff to heart?

    That’s funny!

    Oh, so what you’re saying is we African-Americans (descendants of slaves) are of a lower class than “true” Africans – now before you get your skirt blown up – you made the distinction. Wow, someone one told me that Africans resented American Blacks, but I did not believe it, after all we’re all descendants of Africa – but now I wonder. Now, I guess I have to take s*** from White America and Africans. Well, that’s OK, I’m accustomed to it. But, being an American, I’ve inherited the arrogance of most Americans – the arrogance that allows me to tell almost anyone from any country to KMA.

    Keep your day job, Jill Scott. Making jokes isn’nt something you’re really good at.

    I wonder why a Negro like JS would say that. If a white celebrety said the exact same thing people would call them racist. It was stupid for her to make that statement and put a color/ethnicity to it.

    I applaud Jill for taking responsibility and not claiming her twitter was hacked after she posted this.
