Twitter lynch mob descends on Kim Kardashian after falling for fake racist tweet

Earlier this year, Kardashian visited Nigeria for a concert. And yesterday afternoon, she purportedly sent out this racist tweet:

“Nigeria is such a disgusting country. I couldn’t wait to leave. lol Scott said their women look like apes and I agree.”

Twitterers were shocked that she could say something so vile:

And it didn’t take long for the lynch mob to set their sights on her:

As it turns out, the tweet was a fake.

Kardashian has a verified Twitter account. Had the tweet been authentic, a blue checkmark would appear next to her name, as it does in this tweet:

The tweet in question has no such checkmark. A search for the tweet in Kardashian’s feed also yields no positive results on automated Twitter aggregator Topsy.

    I’m sure these ignoramuses are unaware that Martin Luther King described black women as “disgusting”. Bet you won’t see them blasting him on the Web. It’s 4 legs good, 2 legs bad here on Animal Farm.
