Miguel has been having a tough time on Twitter lately. First he was immortalized as a meme via countless photoshopped pictures after kicking some fans in the face during the BillBoard Music Awards. Now he’s being dragged through the fire after making a blanket statement about Black people.
“I’m proud of my heritage,” he wrote, “but honestly Black people are the most judgmental people in the world.” Instantaneously, Black people responded in offense and anger. It wasn’t immediately evident what sparked Miguel’s comment, but it appears to have been brought on by a discussion about religion.
