This was the tweet that started it all!

“Basketball Wives: LA” breakout star, known model and Mint Swim creator, Draya Michelle was set to co-host BET’s “106 & park” with Bow Wow today. In normal BET fashion, they reached out through Twitter for questions to ask the gorgeous model under the #AskDraya hash tag.

We won’t perpetuate the ignorance of Black twitter’s rant by posting all the tweets, but here’s an example of some of the worst ones:
