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.
