Welp….yet another example of racist “haters gonna hate.”

After Issa Rae and her crew took home the Shorty Award for Best Web Series, some disgruntled nominees just couldn’t handle being beaten by a black girl.

The Shorty Awards recognize the best short content produced for social media, and like the rest of us, they seem to love ABG!

Although she could be upset with folks coming out of the woodwork to bash her work and lob racist comments in the process, Issa Rae seemed to take it all in stride.

Rae tweeted: “Racists haaaaaate me, I’m on my OJ. #ABGNation”


Perhaps she knows that by throwing stones and being upset about the success of Awkward Black Girl, these people are introducing her show to a whole new audience. Score.

Congrats Issa!

    I have noticed that a lot of white females will be saying racist words because Bm have allowed them to, so they think they can be so airhead with racism and think it is cute. Like those girls on Youtube, girls I heard today, these women need to be put in check, like Iggy Azealia. It’s these people influencing them.
