Amanda Palmer Is Burning Down Twitter Right Now

Amanda Palmer has waded into the debate Macklemore (and also 12 Years a Slave for some reason), and the results aren't pretty.

Macklemore's Grammy win for Best Rap Album has launched a thousand essays about 'white privilege' this week, and even led to Macklemore apologising to Kendrick Lamar via text message ("It's weird and sucks that I robbed you," it read).

Macklemore has admitted in the past that he's "benefited from being white", but that hasn't stopped the entire internet pointing this out to him as if it's a revelation. Watching all this from afar, Amanda Palmer — never one to shy away from controversy — decided to get involved today.
