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!
