What was she thinking?
It’s 2017! People get super sensitive about everything, so you have to watch what you tweet. We’re looking at you, Alicia! Celebrities are getting blasted on Twitter left and right nowadays, so you have to think twice before you type out those 140 characters and send them to millions and millions of people. Alicia Keys didn’t do that, and she’s paying the price.
The singer thought that she was posting a motivational picture with a positive message on Twitter, but at the end of the day it was almost the opposite. She got dragged up and down the hallway over and over again by the ruthless fans on the internet.
The tweet in question was an image of Marilyn Monroe lying down in a bikini captioned “Real bodies = gorgeous.” Uh oh, you don’t even have to know much about the internet to know what was coming next. So many people were upset, and they all voiced their opinions.
She received responses like this constantly and had no issues keeping it up. Most celebrities might have deleted the tweet by now, but as of the time of me writing this the tweet lives on. She’s playing with fire at this point, but I guess she’s sticking to her point, right?
