Twitter drags Cosmopolitan article that suggests we shouldn't eat Mac & Cheese

By now, Cosmopolitan and its writers should be used to getting dragged by Black Twitter. The publication was at it again this week, posting an article on why we shouldn’t eat Mac & Cheese.
The author outlined 9 problems with the cheesy pasta delicacy, calling it “boring” and “mushy.” She even said it was a “slap in the face” to good cheese, and that homemade Mac & Cheese sucks.
What in the world!?
Twitter got ahold of the article as soon as it was published and the results were not good.
Needless to say, the author won’t be making friends on Black Twitter anytime soon.
Like myself, many people were ready to set it off.

Some thought that Cosmo’s take on mac & cheese was similar to most of their advice pieces.
Cosmo, your mind-blowing mac and cheese tips are worse than your mind-blowing sex tips. Show yourself out https://t.co/BMI5aqo2tB

@AlishaRai Maybe eating mac and cheese make you too sleepy/full for sex? That would cut into Cosmo’s main themes.

…and it continued
honestly if cosmo did one of their sex tips and was like you should fuck mac and cheese, it would have been their best sex tip

Others thought the article was created by one of our non-melanated peers.

Maybe the author just didn’t have the right person cook their Mac and Cheese?
White ppl who don’t like baked mac and cheese from scratch don’t have “a Black friend” then. LOL. WaPo was right about y’all.😂😭

At the end of the day, if you ever get mad about a review you see about Lemonade or Views, just remember that someone called out Mac and Cheese on its good name.
If ever you’re upset about a bad review, remember that SOME PEOPLE WRITE WHOLE ARTICLES AGAINST MAC AND CHEESE.
