Black Twitter Is Still Erupting Over Yahoo’s #NiggerNavy Snafu

Published: Friday 6th Jan 2017 by Rashad

The good folks over at Yahoo! Finance probably didn’t calculate the backlash they’d experience as a result of a Twitter typo that sent African Americans into a frenzy.

Reporting on president-elect Donald Trump‘s intention to expand the U.S. Navy, the replacement of the “B” in the phrase “bigger navy” has put the finance gurus in hot water.

See what we mean below:



The tweet above sent Twitter into a surprisingly hilarious eruption:

YF later tweeted an apology but it was much too late.

    Lmao RihannaNavy

    • IStan4Rihanna. January 6, 2017

      The “Navy” is such a legendary fanbase. Even Trump no wants the ‘Navy’ to be bigger than it is.


      The impact is too much!



      • Swit Katz January 6, 2017

    Who cares, black Twitter needs to sit the f*** down.

    • gina January 6, 2017

      they’ll sit down when white people sit their racist hypocritical double standard having assses down.

    • pon_de January 6, 2017

      You sound a complete mess. Black Twitter is hilarious, progressive, affirming, intellectual, joyful etc etc. You mad cuz you want in but don’t know the password!

  5. Max January 6, 2017

    They probably meant “bigger Navy” since B and N are right next to each other

    • King z January 6, 2017

      Wow really??!! Who would’ve guessed it?!

    • blue January 6, 2017

    Can someone explain to me why it is called black Twitter?….Are they a sort of group or there is actually a social network called black Twitter?……I don’t use Twitter, just in case my question cause debates here, it’s just out of curiosity.

    • Swit Katz January 6, 2017

      Most blacks are segregative but get angry when they’re not included in things. I don’t understand why….

      • Lana Del Fan January 6, 2017

        Because we want our reciprocity and then for y’all to leave us the hell alone to thrive (E.g. black wall street) just like how the mayo-monkeys consistently tell us to go back to Africa because they don’t need us anymore. Whites need us more than we need them. Look at how much blacks spend. Look at how much we inspire fashion trends. Music trends. Without chocolate this world would be VANILLA, bland and boring!!

      • Yes ladies January 6, 2017

        Preach Lana Del!!!

    Post pollster release on rihanna anti tour gross

    • HailLegendBeysus January 6, 2017

      $61.4 million from 59 dates LMFAOOOOO! What was she selling her stadium dates for $10 bucks?? ????

      • blue January 6, 2017

        she is averaging over a mil per date…what r u on?

      • blue January 6, 2017

        yes 61.4mil from 59 dates, an average of over 1 mil per date, you are laughing at someone pulling in 1mil per date on a tour the hive swore was flopping? and lets not even mention how inaccurate those figures are as she was pulling in 3mil per date on her European leg.

      • HailLegendBeysus January 6, 2017

        She flopped! Pollstar and Billboard almost always report the same numbers and if not its off by a couple million. Anyway I’m done, you’re girl flopped and is trying to hide the receipts. ???

      • blue January 6, 2017

        Pollstar reported the gross of her Amsterdam, Dublin, Glasgow & Stockholm shows and they grossed $11M altogether. If her world tour grossed $61M that means the 19 other european shows grossed $10M altogether.

        clearly the numbers dont add up.
        all pollstar did for this year end chart was take the north american date average that was reported and multiply it with the number of european dates she did and called it a day, they probably did it with everyone on the list, so i will wait for the official numbers.

    Not every mess up deserves noise. People are just way to sensitive these days.

    • January 6, 2017

      it’s the time we live in.

  9. Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~ Tyler January 6, 2017

    Where’s the Pollstar tour grossing post at Rashad?

  10. Tori January 6, 2017

    …Mind you, “black Twitter” are the same ppl who feel like tweeting #blacklivesmatter is the same as participating in the civil rights movement. Why do we have to always come together and show our ignorance at time we are supposed to show our intelligence.

  11. H0tness January 6, 2017
