Oh Lawd! Black Twitter Rebukes R. Kelly From ‘Wakanda’ After His “Black Panther” Tweet

Posted On : February 25, 2018

R. Kelly has just learned the hard way (for like the millionth time) exactly how brutally honest Twitter -in this case, Black Twitter- can be. Following his eviction from his two homes in Atlanta, in which he was no longer paying his $30K monthly rent, we’re assuming R. Kelly thought it would be fun to jokingly put in his bid for a move.

Much like many others, many have been hilariously stating online, that they’re going to the Black Panther fictional African country of “Wakanda,” following the film’s beautiful portrayal of it and it’s citizens. Even Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson airport joined in on the fun with their offering of ‘direct flights’ to “Wakanda” last week.

The R. Kelly “Wakanda” Tweet That Started It All

Since Kellz presumably had to flight out of ATL, given that he no longer has homes there, he tweeted that he, too, will be booking his trip from ATL’s airport to “Wakanda” ASAP…

Little did he know, Black Twitter was ready to pounce all over that idea and immediately decided to let the Grammy Award winning singer know that they will not allow him to put his ‘keys’ into anybody’s ‘ignition’ in “Wakanda.” That is evidenced in the many tweets below…

As y’all can see, Twitter had ZERO chill when it came time to respond to R. Kellly’s “Wakanda” ambitions. And by the way, ever since the backlash, Kellz seems to have removed the “Wakanda” tweet from his Twitter timeline, but it’s still alive and active on Twitter for many.

Random: Why Is “Killmonger” A Villain?

On the brighter side of things, the Black Panther film was pretty dope and a much needed superhero display for Black children to finally see on the big screen. The only downfall is that I really didn’t see what “Killmonger” (Michael B. Jordan) did wrong. The hero, “King T’Challa- the Black Panther” (Chadwick Boseman) had good intentions and so did “Killmonger,” yet he was portrayed as the villain. In all actuality, “Killmonger” was more like a ‘Wakandian’ Malcolm X, taking a more hands-on approach to free his people, after centuries of oppression. Nevertheless, from the cinematography, to the actors, high production value, and the storyline, Black Panther was still an excellent movie that definitely deserves all of the hype it’s receiving. #WakandaForever…I’ll leave the R. Kelly debate up to it’s citizens to decide.
