Trump Supporters Are Angrily Tweeting At The Wrong Black Man–And We Aren't Surprised

This is LeVar Burton. You might recognize him from your childhood from the awesome show, Reading Rainbow.

This is LaVar Ball, a media personality, businessman, and father to three basketball players.

Recently, Donald Trump helped get Ball’s son LiAngelo and two of his teammates from UCLA out of shoplifting charges in China. Something that Ball didn’t thank Trump for, and a fact that the Donald was very, very upset about and went on a Twitter rant as a result.

The President went so far as to say he should’ve left the basketball players in a Chinese jail.

This is what Ball said that upset Trump so much.

In an ironic twist of events, Trump supporters started attacking LeVar Burton, you know, the man I previously mentioned who helped teach millions of kids across America how to read, instead of LaVar Ball. 

Probably because it’s too confusing to know more than one person of color with the same name (even though they’re spelled differently)??

Burton himself tweeted about the mistakes, finding humor in the entire situation.

Which is probably easy for him, considering he’s such a proven talent with tons of awards to back that up.

Soon, the rest of Twitter noticed the hilarious mix-ups and started getting in on the joke.

Trump supporters started getting roasted hardcore.

Pretty much, Kurt. Pretty much.

Trump Supporters Tried To Boycott Stephen King’s ‘IT’—It Didn’t Work Out So Well

Famed horror author Stephen King has had a shaky relationship with President Trump and his supporters for some time now.

Unafraid of tackling Trump’s policies, King even managed to get himself blocked on Twitter by the President in August, prompting him to “ban” Trump from seeing two of his then-upcoming movies: ITandMr. Mercedes:

In retaliation, Trump supporters took to Reddit to organize a boycott ofIT:

Many users were down for the boycott:

Although others wanted to see it as long as no money went to King:

In the end, though, their boycott attempt was a total bust. IT has become a runaway smash hit, opening with a massive $ 123 million haul over the weekend in the U.S., according to Variety, and is expected to rake in an additional $ 62 million in foreign markets.

In fact, it’s on track to become the biggest opening weekend ever for a supernatural or horror film.

But that didn’t stop King fans from trolling Trump and his followers:

Given the horrors the country has already seen, perhaps there’s a certain clown that could step in for Trump:

Next time, don’t mess with King:

Man Shares Photos Of Racist Trump Supporter’s Car, And Twitter Exploded

They say you can tell a lot about a person by their car. We don’t know who owns or drives the car that Krang T. Nelson (seriously, Twitter, never change, these name puns are amazing…) parked next to, but the Twitterverse has collectively decided they’re the absolute worst. 

Things started with Twitter user @KrangTNelson posting this tweet.

For those having trouble seeing, we’ll go image by image. 

First up, this person has a noose hanging from their rear-view mirror.

This is the most troubling image of the three, given the recent unfortunate resurgence of the noose as a symbol of racial intimidation among white supremacists.

Next, there’s a sticker depicting Trump attacking Obama.

Wrapping up the trifecta of terrible, we have aNickelbackCD.

Twitter exploded with responses.

Intellectually based and factually correct snark is the very best kind of snark. Very high quality.

Took the words out of our mouth.

One user had a not-so-subtle suggestion for Krang.

Succinct and to the point.

@Damons had a different perspective than most.

Northeast really just wants everyone to be happy.

Is this a thing? Please let this be a thing.

Saint Krang DOES have a nice ring to it.

Trump Supporters Are Boycotting Starbucks For Hiring Refugees And Twitter Can't Stop Roasting Them

Following President Trump’s executive order banning immigrants and refugees from several Muslim-majority countries, outraged businesses have voiced their opposition to what they believe to be a discriminatory and damaging policy. Lyft, for example, pledged to donate $ 1 million to the ACLU over the next four years, and executives at Netflix, Apple, and Facebook have spoken out condemning the policy — citing adverse impacts on their companies’ talent pool. 

Starbucks is the most recent business to join the resistance to the immigration ban. On Sunday, CEO Howard Schultz announced that the coffee giant is committed to hiring 10,000 refugees at store locations worldwide

“We are developing plans to hire 10,000 [refugees] over five years in the 75 countries around the world where Starbucks does business,” Schultz wrote in a statement released to Starbucks employees. “And we will start this effort here in the U.S. by making the initial focus of our hiring efforts on those individuals who have served with U.S. troops as interpreters and support personnel.”

Many Trump supporters, furious about the company’s decision, took to Twitter to encourage Americans to boycott Starbucks. 

The anti-Starbucks messages ranged from outrage over the hiring of refugees over veterans to fear that refugees would actually poison the coffee. 

Starbucks supporters, however, are roasting the hell out of the boycotters — criticizing their logic and bigotry.
