    19 Of The Most Drama-Filled, Hottest Tea Moments That Happened On Twitter You Probably Forgot About

    It feels like it was just yesterday somebody was getting dragged on Twitter.

    We consume so much media every single second, it's hard to keep up with all the drama after a day or so. Even though I love a good spillage of tea, I can't always stay up-to-date on the happenings on Twitter.

    Well, Twitter user @DexHinton asked people what their favorite forgotten Twitter controversies were, and the responses are as good as they are messy.

    1. Y'all remember the hip-hop exhibit controversy? I KNOW you do:

    What’s your favorite forgotten twitter controversy? Mine is when folks found out a white woman was running the hip hop exhibit @ the Smithsonian & then all her black activist homies defended her, then threw her under the bus with notes app apologies using the phrase “full stop”.

    2. Y'all forgot about these damn chickens in Azealia Banks's closet:

    7. When this author meant it for evil, but god meant it for good:

    @DexHinton When that when author lady took a pic of a Black lady bus driver eating saying she was lazy and the internet came for her and her publisher dropped her like a bad habit

    8. When that person tried to challenge *THE* Nora Roberts and it backfired:

    @DexHinton When YA Twitter and Romance Twitter went to war because a popular YA author falsely accused a Romance author of ripping off her book title, only that Romance author was Nora Roberts.

    9. This one where I told y'all from the jump something was off and nobodyyyy believed me and now here we are:

    @DexHinton when that video of that kid crying about being bullied went viral and celebrities invited his family to movie premieres then they found out he wasn’t being bullied, those kids beat him up for saying the n word and his family was racist too
