It certainly doesn't take much for Twitter to erupt . This is one of the many aspects that make the site interesting, but also disappointing.

Today's topic of discussion surrounds the lack of Black women on Pharrell's G I R L album cover.

To be clear, Skateboard P released the artwork a week ago, and no one seemed outraged about him standing in a terry cloth towel surrounded by three (allegedly) White women until now. Last night however, G I R L went up for pre-sale (and streaming) on iTunes and by daybreak P was getting slaughtered all across Black Twitter.

Journalist Dream Hampton tweeted, "Couldn't be more disappointed by @Pharrell's album cover. I was looking forward to it too. Just wow." Another person flat out refused to "support the album" because there are no Black women on the cover.

So what happens now?
