Oh, Twitter. When you first launched, people didn’t know what to do with you. “What’s the point of Twitter?” was the common question amongst early adapters. Still, people stuck with it and it’s now become one of the most accessible and versatile social media tools out there.

With an army of loyal fans following her on social media, this rapper’s support system branches far beyond that of any up-and-comer. She’s really done well for herself, but amidst all that, her complete lack of empathy threatened to outdo her. This past week, she tweeted a homophobic slur and the failed miserably at trying to explain herself. An again. An again. And the tried to defer the situation. An again.
