When you’re adrift in the wake of a 2.4 Pitchfork review, now’s not the time to make Don Imus shout-outs. Rapper Asher Roth was quickly forced to apologize on his Twitter recently, when some of his followers objected to a tweet that cited Don Imus’ controversial statement on the Rutgers women’s basketball team. P4K’s Ian Cohen really nailed it when he said of Roth, “I’ll probably only get to say this once, but frat boys deserve better.”
“At rutgers stirring up a suckus,” Roth tweeted. Okay, not bad.
Then: “At rutgers stirring up a ruckus.” Oh no, is he tweet-rapping?
“Been a day of rest and relaxation, sorry twitter – hanging out with nappy headed hoes.” Boom.
The post was later deleted, but he followed it with some damage control: “Totally just making fun of Don Imus – sorry scoot, not tryna be offensive” and “I’m extremely apologetic to anyone who took offense to my immature, bad joke.”
Twitter’s great, innit?
