At this point, Lil Duval is an expert level troll who uses his massive platform to stir up debate and controversy with ease. This time, the comedian and part-time musician was critical of Black women wearing the afro hairstyle and the Twitter dragging has commenced.

Duval’s latest salvo took place Wednesday morning (July 24) when he wrote the following:

I hate the big curly bushy hair look. I’m not saying stop wearing it ladies i personally just don’t like it. I like every other style tho especially the straight hair look. But that big Afro lion sh*t no can do

On Instagram, Lil Duval doubled down on his critique of the big, curly hairstyle with an image of a woman with a mass of hair, writing in the caption, “[t]his the hair style i don’t like. Maybe one day but after a while sh*t start looking crazy to me kinda like driving a lime green box Chevy everyday to work.”

Duval is clearly unbothered, posting on his Instagram an unflattering shirtless image of himself inviting the slander that is sure to come.

Check out the reactions to Lil Duval’s afro slander below.

Jamie Foxx Vs. Donald Glover: Twitter Debates Over Who Is Most Talented

2018 BET Awards - Roaming Show

In the pantheon of entertainers with multiple talents, it doesn’t get any more stacked in that arena that Jamie Foxx and Donald Glover. Both men have done major things in film, television, and music, causing Twitter to debate who is the more talented of the two.

The debate kicked off at some point on Tuesday in the wake of some fans discovering Foxx’s recent appearance on Jerry Seinfeld’s Netflix series, Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee. Some fans, possibly younger folks, most likely missed some of Foxx’s star turns as a sketch actor in the 90s on In Living Color to his own hit sitcom, The Jamie Foxx Show and beyond. On top of it, he’s scored a number of hits as a singer as well, including the double-platinum Unpredictable from 2005.

Glover’s no slouch himself, this after showing off his vocal and voice acting chops in the updated version of Disney’s The Lion King. The (former?) Childish Gambino has also become a critical darling as a musician with his last album Awaken! My Love putting him in rare company as a performer who rose from comedic roots just as Foxx did. Of course, his Emmy Award-winning series Atlanta also catapulted Glover’s career with its genre-bending storytelling and arc.

It’s unfair to compare the two because Foxx’s been at this since 1991 when Glover was just eight years old. However, Twitter loves a debate and it’s been raging to the point folks are shutting down Childish Gambino fans with overwhelming evidence that Jamie Foxx has been at this for a very long time at a high level.

Old In The Face: Twitter Kicks Off Hilarious #AgeChallenge With Aging Filter On FaceApp

Ludacris Tyrese #AgeChallenge #FaceApp

Source: Instagram / Instagram

If you’ve been on social media for the past 24 hours, you might’ve noticed that everyone’s been looking a little “seasoned” in the face and hair department. An app called FaceApp has gone viral once more after adding a filter that ages the photo of a person it captures, kicking off the hilarious #AgeChallenge on Twitter.

Things weren’t always so rosy for FaceApp when just two years ago, the app was in hot water for allowing users to change their ethnicity and drew criticism of promoting the racist practice of Blackface. However, the app is back in the good graces of the masses and it appears everyone’s having way too much fun with it. However, one Twitter user noted that using the app has far more nefarious implications regarding facial recognition software.

We’ve collected some of our fave reactions and images below.

Twitter Fries Racist President Trump AKA Comrade Cheeto With #ObamaWasBetterAt Hashtag

Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy meets with U.S. President Barack Obama

Source: Oscar Gonzalez/WENN.com / WENN

President Donald Trump got his wispy lacefront all in a tizzy after a whiny Twitter rant over the weekend took cheap shots at four junior congresswomen of color. The former business mogul doubled down on his comments and failed to apologize, prompting Twitter users to fire back at Comrade Cheeto with the #ObamaWasBetterAt hashtag.

The tag began trending on Twitter Tuesday morning (July 16) and users are artfully using the moment to call out Trump’s reign in the White House in comparison to former President Barack Obama. The stark differences between the two men are apparent to anyone living in America despite what side of the aisle you claim, and it’s telling that folks have long laundry lists of traits that Obama was definitely better than Trump at maintaining.

We’ve collected the best of the #ObamaWasBetterAt hashtag comments below.

Boxing Legend Pernell “Sweet Pea” Whitaker Dead At 55, Twitter Reacts #PernellWhitaker

Pernell Whitaker, a four-weight world champion, was one of the best defensive boxers of his era. Fight fans from around the world are joined in mourning after news that the man known as Sweet Pea was struck by a vehicle Sunday night (July 14) in his native Virginia, dying from his injuries.

ESPN reports:

The Virginia Beach Police Department said that the incident remains an active investigation but that Whitaker was apparently hit by a vehicle at around 10 p.m. Sunday when he was walking at an intersection.

“When officers arrived on scene they located an adult male victim who had been hit by a vehicle. The victim succumbed to his injuries on the scene,” Virginia Beach Police Department spokesman L.M. Bauder said in a statement. “The driver of the vehicle remained on scene with police.”

Known as “Sweet Pea,” Whitaker, a southpaw from Norfolk, Virginia, was revered as perhaps the best defensive fighter in history as his slick moves confounded opponent after opponent.

In his time, Whitaker embarrassed his opponents with bob and weave skills that only Floyd Mayweather Jr. has come close to mastering. While his fists didn’t pack knockout power, he stood toe to toe with some of the most feared punchers ever and never once backed down from a challenge.

On Twitter, Whitaker’s name appeared atop the trending topics with reactions from fans all over the world. We’ve collected some of those responses below.

Rest Powerfully In Peace, Sweet Pea.
