JET Magazine Slandered Righteously For Mistaking Xscape For SWV
Usually when a Black person is mistaken for another Black person, we can point our fingers at a lazy mayo packet for being too lazy to learn what a person looks like before they call their name.
However, in this case, we have to point the finger at one of our own…
Although many believe that JET magazine is now owned by the greek yogurts, that is not true. The iconic Black publication was recently bought by African-American venture capitalist ClearView Group.
But none of that matters, because whether the person tweeting from JET’s account was Black, white, Puerto Rican or Haitian, there is absolutely NO reason to mistake Xscape for SWV when THERE IS A BIG A$$ SIGN ON STAGE THAT SAYS “XSCAPE”.
The slander on Twitter was swift and furious.
Flip it over to see more of the formerly beloved JET magazine be dragged to 140-character Hell.
