Looks like singer-songwriter Miguel is having a few bad days since his epic fail performance at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards on May 19. The now viral clip, showed the artist attempting a jump across the stage — only to miss said jump and injure two audience members.
Now, let’s fast forward to Memorial Day, where the 27 year-old must have seen one too many memes of his WWE move and decided to take his frustrations out on the twitterverse.
Miguel (who is of Mexican and African-American descent), took to his twitter account to unleash a seemingly unprovoked rant about black people being “the most judgmental people in the world.”
A couple of hours before the “we hate ourselves” rant began, he tweeted: “…yet most of these people pointing the finger wear things like “the cross” around their neck. Historically, a PAGAN symbol..” Not sure who he was referring to, but he continued shortly after with a series of other tweets — which you can read below.
Im proud of my heritage but honestly, black people are the most judgmental people in the world. Shits sad man. We’ve been conditioned, pre-programmed to hate ourselves. That’s why I appreciate those who choose to think and act for themselves regardless of ethnicity or culture.
After receiving some negative responses from some of his black twitter followers, he backpedaled a bit but still keep his core argument:
The problem can not be fixed until the problem is recognized. Not everyone is the same thank goodness. And obviously, I love all my fans. Of course EVERYONE is judgmental. I just PERSONALLY believe WE are the most critical of our own.
He does have some points, but how do you feel about what Miguel said? Let us know in the comment area.
