Weigh In: Maxwell Suffers Backlash After Referring To Justin Bieber As “Light Skinned Negro”

Published: Friday 27th Sep 2013 by Rashad

‘This Woman’s Work’ wailer Maxwell worked up a firestorm of controversy with his Twitter followers earlier today when he shared a tweet jokingly praising the “light skinned negro”.

Listing a host of performers including Drake, Prince, Chris Brown, and more, fans weren’t too pleased when they got to the last name on the last – pop pinup Justin Bieber.

The response was so brutal, the ‘Fortunate’ crooner had to follow with a number of explanatory tweets to ensure everyone understood it was a joke.

Was it worth the uproar?  You tell us:

      i didn’t “tell” you anything. the question was “what other blogs are even discussing this”. i told you who was.

      it doesn’t matter if it was mary, sue, and jane down the street. the principle is, you made it seem like they pulled the story out of thin air when there are other people discussing it.

  9. Tisha September 28, 2013

    That tweet probably made Bieber so happy.

  10. POP ROYALTY September 28, 2013

    And This is a Story because….

    Actually Justina should be flattered, that is a Huge compliment coming from Maxwell.

    I know Justina was Ecstatic after Hearing this, Finally her Wanna-be Lil Black Thug paid off, Usher will be proud with her.

    Love Max’s Music.

    But I think Blacks Should just stop calling themselves “Negro” and “nappy-Headed Ho” Then get mad when a White person do the Same to them. 😯
    parts of this New Culture just sound Illiterate and ignorant, with the whole “Twerk” , “turn up” and dumb s*** like that….. 😕

    • wow September 28, 2013

      ‘blacks’ should stop

      no you stop. You sound ignorant.

    Get off of ciaras nuts, shes good but definitely no BEYONCE, no kelly clarkson etc. the girls vocal ability is limited, yes she can dance great but look at her sales and compare to the Greats that were listed. They sell out ARENAS
