A lot of fans were confused, amused, or looking for a bruise on Twitter after a viral tweet made the rounds.

Twitter's never the place for consistently positive discourse, but negativity can become comical when it seems so confusing. That's what's happening right now on Twitter, as DJ Khaled is trending for a viral tweet calling him fat. Of course, it can be hard to trace original posts on the Internet, but people seem to be focusing on one tweet in particular. "Drake is retiring, Migos broken, DJ Khaled is fat, Rap game is in shambles rn," the tweet read. Also, its author included a screenshot of Cillian Murphy holding a gun to his head in the show Peaky Blinders, which is a popular reaction meme right now.

Furthermore, a lot of people are amused at Khaled's inclusion because, frankly, it's not necessarily news at this point. While a lot of people took the opportunity to shame DJ Khaled, others recognized how ridiculous the comment is. "Why u gotta pack on dj Khaled like that," one tweeter expressed. Another wrote, "Dj Khaled part outta pocket." Still, for all the jokes and confused comments that Twitter could make, the industry titan will likely remain unfazed.

After all, he recently announced a massive partnership between We The Best Music and Def Jam. "I’m bringing my talents, and We The Best, and DJ Khaled to Def Jam Records," he said during a press conference. "So it’s We The Best, Def Jam, and Cavalry dropping this music group, which I’m very excited [about]. Not only that, but shoutout to Sir Lucian Grainge for, you know, also giving me a major role in the Universal Music Group as a Global Creative- what do you call it? Consultant, yeah, you know what I’m saying? A Global Creative Consultant. I love that I’m going to be able to do that besides putting out my albums.”

“We’re going to be signing artists and we’re actually looking for some new A&Rs to add to the team," he continued. "We’re going to be doing a lot of big things at We The Best and Def Jam. What I like also about this whole creative consultant thing is that I’m going to be able to touch the whole Universal Music Group. Not just in music, but in marketing, film, TV, just anything dealing with creating.” Check out reactions to his trending status down below and come back to HNHH for the latest on DJ Khaled.
