Black Twitter always find a way to find the humor in the toughest times.
The Coronavirus came to the United States like a thief in the night and is causing everything to get shut down. Restaurants and bars have been ordered to be closed. Public places like museums, national parks and aquariums have been closed until further notice. Nike and Apple have closed the doors to all of their stores until the pandemic ends. The NBA has postponed the remainder of its season.
The government is now urging Americans to stay inside and practice social distancing, but there’s not much for people to do in their homes.
With not much to watch on television, everyone is turning to social media to get their daily dose of entertainment and Twitter is the perfect app to relieve stress and get a few laughs in.
The memes have taken over Black Twitter. There is a video of Soulja Boy talking about how he shot at people used as an exaggeration on how we survived this pandemic. People are comparing being quarantined to Hazel London saying “well damn, if you can’t go to Bella Noches then where the hell could you go?” in the infamous video.
Another meme poked fun at Rihanna being happy that we are focusing on the pandemic and forgetting about her dropping an album.
One social media user tweeted, “This Coronavirus bullshit is upsetting me and my homegirls cause we feel like well damn if we can’t go outside then where the hell can we go!?!?!”
Another user tweeted, “That’s fine that some of YALL can afford to miss 4-8 paychecks…But as for me and MY bank account, I needs that ON TIME at 12:01 am.”
