As always, Twitter memed the hell out of the VMAs and clowned Maria Sharapova.

We can always count on the VMAs to provide Twitter with plenty of meme-worthy content, but most of the focus was on Missy Elliott, who finally got her long-deserved Video Vanguard Award Sunday night.

As always, Megan Thee Stallion dominated the conversation after winning a VMA, getting her own emoji and meeting Jay-Z.
Twitter done gave ya girl an emoji ! #megantheestallion— HOT GIRL MEG (@theestallion) August 29, 2019
Twitter also took a little time out to roast news outlets dubbing Serena Williams' match against Maria Sharapova a "rivalry."

Maria is like a villain in a kids TV show; she never wins and yet she’s back each week with a new scheme https://t.co/BjhqNeUJ1L— Ira thee Third (@ira) August 27, 2019

Only 5 women have beaten Serena 5+ times, with Venus having the most at 12. The other 4 are retired. A handful of women have beaten her 4 times. None of them are Sharapova. Stop calling her a rival.— Raequaza the Chef (@brosninja) August 27, 2019

We still got a few residual tweets about the chicken sandwich craze that overtook the country for nearly three weeks.
