10 TWITTER MOMENTS: NICKI MINAJ INTRODUCES PAPA BEAR
We’re not even a week into January, and already I can see Twitter has come together in collective rage at its first main character of 2021: Bean Dad. I’m not even going to bother to explain the story behind it (you can read more about it here if you really, really want to), but it’s good to know the holiday spirit hasn’t yet dampened our ability to get Very Mad™ while screaming into the digital void. HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE! Check out this week’s dose of We Are: The Guard’s 10 Twitter Moments, featuring Nicki Minaj, Lil Nas X, Cardi B, and plenty of others!
Thanks for sending. I am not reading all of that (Bean Dad). However, it looks like nonsense.
