The year 2016 not only saw us lose way too many icons, it was also chock full of Twitter struggle. Whether it was a poorly timed tweet, slandered aimed at the wrong person or the Twitter mob being petty—getting fried on social media meant your life was getting put on blast 140 characters at a time. 

So to kick off The Struggle Awards 2016, let’s look at who topped the list in the “Twitter Struggle” category.

Let us know who you think should have got a nod in the comments.

Kanye West vs. Wiz Khalifa, and Amber Rose

Kanye West lit into Wiz Khalifa via Twitter when he took the Pittsburgh rapper’s reference to KK (as in Khalifa Kush) as disrespect towards Kim Kardashian. Yeah, Yeezy played himself, but it also led to Amber Rose hopping into the fray and saying Mr. West liked to have his bootyhole played with. Bruh…



Azealia Banks Gets Booted From Twitter

Azealia Banks acted such a fool on Twitter that her account got deaded. Thanks to racist rhetoric, Twitter suspending her account. This of course led to the #AzealiaGotSuspendedParty. She’s still on Facebook, though.

Columbus Short and Karrine “Superhead” Steffans Twitter Divorce

It started with many saying, “Wait, Columbus Short and Superhead are married, for real?” Then Superhead allegedly caught Columbus cheating on her, and she proceeded to document it on Instagram. To his credit, Short stayed a cool customer as Superhead acted a fool.


Charlamagne Tha God Saying Black Women Should Follow Tomi Lahren’s Example

We fux with Charlamagne, but he even gave himself Donkey of the Day for this one. Don’t tell Black women what to do. But if you must, you better frame it better than telling the “woke” sistas to follow the example of a lily white bastion of conservative attitudes and supremacy. Just saying.


Ayesha Curry Says The NBA Is Rigged

After a bad loss in the Finals, Ayisha Curry took to Twitter to say that the NBA is “rigged.” Mind you, with ever W, the glory usually went to God. Thus, Twitter proceeded to go in.

Don’t let this distract you from the fact that the Golden State Warriors blew a 3-1 lead in the NBA Finals.

And the winner is (word to Chubb Rock…)…hit the flip.

PARTYNEXTDOOR Exposes Kehlani’s Creeping Ways?

Kehlani was at least for a moment romantically involved with Kyrie Irving. PARTYNEXTDOOR got petty and posted a pic of him intimately chilling with the crooner, and the sh*t hit the Twitter fan. An alleged suicide watch later, and Kehlani is still getting the side eye, while Irving won an NBA championship.
