Kwame Brown responds to Jemele Hill’s tweets
By now you are all familiar with the internet smoke wars revolving around former NBA player Kwame Brown, but here’s a quick recap anyway.
Cash shit talked about Brown and his less than illustrious pro-basketball career on a recent episode from the Matt Barnes and Stephen Jackson podcast, All the smoke. Gilbert Arenas had the most to say, but Brown took a “anyone can get it” approach to responding to comments and he essentially Told Jackson, Barnes, Arenas and others at STFU keep his name out of their mouths and stop using their platforms to take down black men. Then they and Jackson were all like, “No, those were just jokes.” Then Barnes – whom Brown has repeatedly called “Becky with the right hair” –went to ESPN and basically said to Brown, “Fuck you nigga, talk to Michael Jordon for making you a No.1 pick in the draft, beyotch! (At this point I’m largely paraphrasing the back-and-forth .) Brown said some more inflammatory shit about Barnes and them in response, then Barnes invited him to come on the podcast and also to cope.
In a long Instagram post, Brown told Barnes, “Dude, nobody’s gonna come on your show or fight your light-skinned-Jesus-Shuttlesworth-ass” – (again, paraphrasing) – and berated Barnes for something to about letting his daughter do it “Jump over a door” of a house he paid for, which was apparently a reference to a incident involving Derek Fisher dating Barnes ex-wife Gloria Govan. (I actually had to read all of this drama because I clearly missed those episodes of Real basketball niggas housewives husbands and I had to make up for it.)
Anyway, Jemele Hill enters the chat.
On Tuesday, the sports reporter did what everyone else has been doing on social media since the saga began and made a whimsical commentary on how Brown became the Macho Man Randy Savage of the basketball world and how she doesn’t want any of that. smoke coming from her or her mother.
“Kwame Brown had me check the tape to make sure I never said shit about him. If I did, I’m sorry, ”Hill wrote. “Please don’t talk about my mom.”
Previously, Hill also posted a different tweet about Brown’s “choice of violence”.
That violent tweet didn’t go very well with Brown, who – * in my best voice MJ * –took it personally.
“Jemele Hill, hello. Hello black queen, ”Brown told Hill in an Instagram post. “You said all weekend that I was violent, which leads me to believe that something is wrong with you. Mrs. Hill, Mom, I have kids and you just lie on me and you on the bridge.
Obviously, Brown doesn’t understand what it means to ‘choose violence’ in an internet meme talk, so Hill tried to explain it to him.
“To Kwame Brown: I said you chose violence,” she tweeted. “It’s an expression of Game of Thrones. I didn’t call you violent. Please and thank you. “
The moral of the story here is simple: stop saying shit about Kwame.
In fact, no more references to real or fictional Browns. Let’s just avoid all the Browns – James Brown, Chris Brown, Bobby Brown, Judge Joe Brown, Zac Brown Band, Charlie Brown, Nino Brown etc. Don’t even refer to Pam Grier due to her involvement in the movies Foxy Brown and Jackie Brown.
Damn, while we’re at it, let’s stay away from anything like “Kwame”. No more words or phrases with a prominent K and W. If kiwi fruit is your favorite fruit, save that shit to yourself. You don’t listen to Kanye West anymore; only “Ye”, “Yeezy” or “Yeezus” are acceptable. Keke Wyatt is no longer your favorite singer; you have to go with J-Hud or Fantasia to public places from now on.
Sorry guys, I don’t make the rules; Kwame Brown, and I don’t want smoke.
