Twitter beefs between celebrities are so ubiquitous these days, we almost expect them to happen. But yesterday’s exchange of tweets between Katy Perry and Chief Keef was more disturbing than usual.

It started when the pop star mentioned Chief Keef’s song “Hate Being Sober,” saying:

“Just heard a new song on the radio called “I hate being sober” I now have serious doubt for the world.”

Katy’s comment angered the rapper, who unleashed a series of tweets at the pop star:

“Dat b—h Katy Perry Can Suck Skin Off Of my D—”/”Ill Smack The Shit out her”

He then threatened to write a song about her:

“New song Katy Perry coming soon”

As a woman, those tweets rubbed me the wrong way. Violence against women and sexual degradation shouldn’t be taken lightly, and they certainly shouldn’t be referenced just because someone doesn’t like your song. Chief Keef has a reputation of outrageous social media stunts, and it’s high time that he exhibits more responsibility in the messages he puts out to his 600,000+ followers.

After Chief Keef’s outburst, Katy Perry apologized to him:

“Mr. Keef! I’m sorry if I offended you. I heard a lot of people guesting on the song & didn’t even know it was you in particular. Actually…I’m a fan of your “Don’t Like” video tbh. I was really just having a general opinion on our generations desire to be constantly intoxicated. Believe me, I’m a lover not a hater. x”

And he accepted, tweeting:

“I Get It Now Dont Worry”

It’s great that they were able to reach a resolution, but their “beef” didn’t need to escalate to such a disturbing level in the first place. What do you think of their exchange, Clutchettes?

    What’s boggling to me is why she even apologized in the first place. She was just stating her opinion. Why didn’t she defend it?

  • Misty-Mac

    This bum deserved no apology. She even called him “Mr.” SMH.

  • Misty-Mac

    She should never have apologized. What makes it so bad is she addressed him as “Mr.” (Thanks for posting the lyrics to his “rap”. Pure ignorance. As a race, we cannot afford this ignorance. Let others engage in nonsense; it is much to detrimental to our community.)
