From Peeping Pope To Pastor Lean Back, Here Are The Most Reckless Tweets Of The Week

Y'all did that.

From now on, we'll be bringing you, our beloved Blavity Fam, some of the week's greatest social media moments every Friday. Without further ado, let's look back at a wild week.

Cue the Cardi B and Nicki fight. The New York Fashion Week showdown between two of hip-hop's greatest talents inspired thousands of memes and hilarious tweets. However, one in particular takes the cake:

This week was back-to-school time for a lot of families, and we have to give a special shout-out to this sister for not only telling our black history like it is, but for refusing to back down when folks tried to whitewash it.

Speaking of black history, can we talk about that moment when the spirit of 'Retha seriously left Fantasia's body at the iconic diva's tribute during the Black Girls Rock telecast?

We learned a few things about beauty this week. For instance, ladies all know about the beauty that is the bra release, but did you know about the wig release?

GIPHY
GIPHY

And we all learned about this iconic life hack. The plug!

Oh, and can we bless the strength of wrapping up a tiny ponytail into a rubber band and it turning out successful enough for a hair tutorial?

The Bible says faith is the assurance of things hoped for & the conviction of things not seen. 

Sister Nia anchored that ponytail in FAITH. Walk in the spirit of the ponytail. Amen. pic.twitter.com/VXY9G8txKH

Extreme weather events were all over the news this week. Hurricane Florence's imminent arrival had this Twitter user dishing out some (completely accurate) shaaaaaaaade

Speaking of church folk, Pastor Fat Joe is a big mood, thanks for coming to our TED Talk. This was the week we found out TS doesn't stand for Terror Squad, but Tabernacle Squad.

Rounding out religious moments sure to go down in history is this delight from none other than the Pope himself.

What was he doing, though?! LOL

Fantasia wasn't the only diva to have a major musical moment this week. Check out this video, which comes with a plot twist. Bet you weren't expecting what started as a basic white girl cover to turn into ... this. Also, yes, we all do this. Performing whole concerts at home, alone. 

GIPHY
GIPHY

While we're on the topic of basic white covers, raise your hand if you remember young Justin Timberlake and Ryan Gosling belting out Jodeci, though. A MOMENT.

Gosling and Timberlake have moved on and are living their best lives these days. This Twitter user will be right there with them. Eventually.

GIPHY
GIPHY

Jemele Hill, fresh off her departure from ESPN, was with the s**ts. Her tweet is all of us when we quit a frustrating job and are going toward bigger and better. 

GIPHY
GIPHY

Hill wasn't the only person loosening up on Twitter. We need to know: when is Jackée Harry's album, "OG Queen" dropping? TO FREEDOM! 

GIPHY
GIPHY

While Jackée was pulling men, Keri Hilson posed a very good question about them. And got a very good answer. We stan a relevant reference legend.

GIPHY
GIPHY

Last, but not least, we'd like to share this gem. Snitches get stitches of the hilariously petty variety, apparently.

That's about it for us this week, but we know there are so many more great tweets we didn't get to highlight here. What were some of your faves this week?
