Are people jumping on his throat because of a simple tweet? I know, I know, the connotations are insensitive and racist and bhsjbvdhjkgvyutg3wiygwhbnfjuvio but Lord, it's just a simple tweet. Maybe he didn't mesured his words well, happens all the time, maybe he didn't realized what he said (and people will nsay THAT'S BECAUSE HE'S INORANT AND STUPID AND RACIST AND HSUVBDIOYVFUIWQ). It was clearly just a joke. Why do people get their panties in a knot over everything?

If I found everything this offensive all the time, my mind would be lost. As would be anyone else's.

I thought that the word typed/said like that doesn´t carry the same cultural meaning than properly typed/said...? like this way is more gangsta/hip hop...?
I don´t know... my bf is latin, he has one black friend who´s always calling him "my n-gga" and the other way around, neither is never offended by it.

Thats the point. He used the term so casually without even considering how those who've had and still have a very painful relationship with the word feel about it. I don't like when anyone uses that word, and yes as a person of color i have every right to be offended and annoyed. Its never a joke imo! He didn't even apologize when one of his followers calmly explained why she was offended, he just ignored it. Like it was nothing. Says a lot about peoples warped perception of whats socially acceptable nowadays. I'm not amused.

Well being from the hood, lmfao, that word is used loosely and well it has no meaning.
He's a different story, but I don't think the word was used in any bad way.

Yes the word is bad but he actually wasn't using it in a derogatory or racist way.

*shrug*

Now that other model who recently tweeted the N&^%s in Paris joke that was a bit offensive to me cos of the racist Mandingo stereotype associated with her 'joke'.

Whatever his intention is, I say he should be more responsible and sensitive, specifically with his choice of words, in posting comments to social networks. I mean come on, he's a celebrity and he has like how many followers again. No offense meant but I'm geared towards thinking it's for "publicity only". I have this feeling that he knows people will react once he posts that "word". Couldn't explain it more..

^LoL at that laugh.

A few days ago I found out a co worker of mine worked with Valerija Kelava a few years ago - she went to school for designing clothes and Valerija was her model for the runway show and I apparently Valerija is really kind, nice and a bit quiet (just like I imagined she would be).

I don't know why people are making a case for Andrej.

The N word is simply unacceptable. In all likelihood he didn't use it as an epithet or mean to cause offence, but it's still unacceptable.

There are some words you just don't use on a public platform. Full Stop. He should just apologise and get done with it.

I absolutely agree. All these discussions about political correctness are so aimless, it's like running in a hamster wheel, absolutely pointless. I feel like some people are just eagerling awaiting someone to make a racist/politically incorrect statement to have a reason to start moaning. If I found everything offensive that people say about my not so admired home country, I'd probably have to commit suicide or hide in a trash bin.
