Black Twitter Goes Ham On Pebbles While Watching TLC Biopic [PHOTOS]


The highly anticipated TLC biopic, CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story, aired on VH1 tonight (Oct. 21) and many tuned in while simultaneously participating in running commentary about the film on Twitter. Besides plenty of reminiscing and mostly positive words on Lil Mama’s portrayal of the late Left Eye, the lion’s share of slander was aimed at the alleged exploitive business practices of the group’s old manager, Perri “Pebbles” Reid.

It has long been rumored that Pebbles made a killing off TLC while the group barely made any money (relatively), despite selling millions of records. The movie illustrated plenty of Pebbles’ alleged schemes, from suspect contracts, to mind games, to giving no f-cks about T-Boz dealing with her sickle cell anemia.

Of course, Black Twitter responded in kind with plenty of vitriol, dancing all in the mentions of Pebbles , who was already threatening to sue before the film aired. Check out the best (or meanest) of the commentary in the following pages.

    I remember hearing that this film actually sugar-coated what Pebbles did to them. If so, she will have her day of reckoning.

    I’m glad all this came out in 2013, right in the middle of this social media era, so we can all go directly to Pebbles and blast her on Twitter.

      But what can you expect from a former prostitute, multiple marrying, multiple affair having, fraudulent preacher, with a love child she left to her brother to raise?
      Pebbles is a broken woman who needs prayer.

    $25 a week and a Honda Prelude…Wow! It makes sense that Pebbles is a “pastor” now. She had prior experience as a pimp with TLC.
