A Man Ripped Into a Woman For Not Wanting To Buy Him Red Lobster and Twitter Had Some Thoughts

Fierce

A Man Ripped Into a Woman For Not Wanting To Buy Him Red Lobster and Twitter Had Some Thoughts

Red Lobster

*WARNING* a derogatory term casually used by the Twitter user profiled in this piece is in the exact opposite of our views and values*

Recently, a thread by @RoblesTeonna made the popular casual dining chain restaurant Red Lobster start to trend on Twitter. After Robles shared a text exchange between her and a man she was dating on social media, her 2,500 followers took to Twitter to express their opinions on the bizarre saga.

It all started when Robles posted a screenshot of a shocking interaction she had with a man she was seeing. In the text exchange, Robles shares some photos of delicious-looking tacos with a mystery man, asking him if he wants any. “I know you’re craving Red Lobster,” she says in the text convo. “But I also don’t have much money after paying my bills and it would just be easier on me”.

Instead of being grateful for Teonna’s offer to bring him food, the unidentified man instead responds callously, telling her not to “ask me what I want to eat [and] then tell me to pick something else ever again”.

Robles, understandably upset over the man’s rude response, tells him that she doesn’t like the way he’s speaking to her. “I’m offering to get you food & going out of my way to do so,” she explains to him. She then further explains that if he wants to continue to treat her so poorly, she’ll no longer associate with him.

The man takes his reaction even further by telling her that she shouldn’t have been trying to “play a position” she wasn’t “fit for”. Presumably, he is talking about the fact that she offering to buy him food and then later told him she didn’t have enough money for what he was asking for. “You’re clearly not on my level,” he told her. “And can’t afford to support a man of my caliber”. 

Needless to say, Teonna’s Twitter users had some strong opinions over this man’s entitled behavior. 

@RoblesTeonna’s post quickly went viral, racking up almost 37,000 likes, over 4,000 comments and over 8,000 retweets. Not only were her followers shocked by his surprising reaction to not getting Red Lobster, they were also shocked by his insistence that the woman he dates should “support” him–especially when that woman makes it clear that she’s short on cash due to paying her own bills. 

Although there is a pervasive belief that women resort to “hustling” men for dates in order to get free meals, the situation proves that the attitude of entitlement goes both ways. There are a myriad of different ways people of all genders use others to fulfill their own agendas. People were quick to point out this man’s hypocrisy with comments like, “Imagine demanding from someone else, what you can’t even provide yourself. Humans are exhausting”.

After @RoblesTeonna’s account of her experience with this man, the man decided to tell his side of the story. Spoiler alert: he does not come off as a hero.

After being contacted by someone via Facebook to address the situation, the man (who is identified as “Shawn”) explains that he and Teonna were not dating, although she “wanted to claim [him] as her man”. According to Shawn, he was not yet interested in Teonna, because “she’s not the only woman trying to impress [him]” and he “cannot just sit and give any woman a relationship with [him]”.

Thankfully, the entire internet had Teonna’s back enough to publicly explain the multiple reason why she’s better than this low-life man.

Contrary to what “Shawn” believes about himself, any person who treats another person like this (regardless of gender) is not worth the time of day. Periodt.

This person made a valid point about how this man was whining about something he could have easily provided for himself.

It’s obvious that this man doesn’t have the ability to provide for himself, so he relies on the women in his life to fill that need.

A lot of people were pointing out the absurdity of thinking that Red Lobster is the peak of American fine dining. 

It’s not like Red Lobster is some Michelin-rated gourmet food. It’s pretty much “Applebee’s Of the Sea”.

This person perfectly pointed out the hypocrisy of Shawn’s argument.

Presumably, a person of “high caliber” wouldn’t need to be supported, because they would have the resources to support themselves.

Even the reigning Queen of Twitter, Chrissy Teigen, got in on the fun:

Finally, a voice of reason among all this nonsense.

Mariah Carey’s Twitter Account Was Hacked And The Hackers Definitely Have Some Thoughts On Eminem

Mariah Carey’s Twitter Account Was Hacked And The Hackers Definitely Have Some Thoughts On Eminem

Mariah Carey is starting off the new year in the beautifully messy way only Mimi could. The legendary vocalist made history becoming the first artist in history to top the Billboard charts in four different decades with the single “All I Want For Christmas Is You.” On the flipside, Carey’s Twitter account was hacked on New Year’s Eve and it tweeted some unsettling things about her alleged former fling and musical nemesis Eminem.

Hackers unleash the N-word and Eminem thirst tweets from Mariah’s account.

The hackers identified themselves a the Chuckling Squad. The same group that hacked Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey in August and celebrities like Chloe Grace Moretz. Things like “Eminem has a little penis” and “Yo that diss track on Eminem was hard” were tweeted from the “Obsessed” singer’s account to her 21.4 million followers. 

“Confirming the account was hacked. As soon as we were made aware of the issue, we locked the compromised account and are currently investigating the situation,” a Twitter spokesperson toldThe Hollywood Reporter

By the mid-afternoon of New Year’s Eve, the incident had been resolved. The Elusive Chanteuse tweeted before midnight, “I take a freaking nap and this happens.” It’s always nice to see celebrities have a sense of humor about these kinds of things. 

The Chuckling Squad has done this kind of thing before.

The Chuckling Squad has been notorious for taking over the Twitter accounts of high profile users, including Dorsey the platform’s founder. In August, a loophole allowed the hackers to infiltrate his account. 

“The phone number associated with the account was compromised due to a security oversight by the mobile provider. This allowed an unauthorized person to compose and send tweets via text message from the phone number. That issue is now resolved,” Twitter said after Dorsey’s hack

At the time, Twitter disabled the function to tweet via SMS or text message. It is unclear if the same method was used to hack Carey’s account. The Chuckling Squad’s MO tends to be tweeting polarizing things, including the N-word, from famous peoples’ accounts. They even tweeted out Moretz’s social security number.

The comments about Eminem appear to have been an attempt at reigniting a feud between Carey and the rapper Eminem. The duo’s feud began when the “Lose Yourself” rapper said he dated Carey in 2001. 

“I hung out with him, I spoke to him on the phone,” the singer explained to Larry King around the time. “I think I was probably with him a total of four times. And I don’t consider that dating somebody.”

Mimi released the diss track “Obsessed.” The music video featured herself dressed as an Eminem-like figure who stalks Carey. Slim Shady continued the feud after she wed Nick Cannon. Despite Cannon and Carey’s divorce, Marshall Mathers dissed Cannon again this September on the Fat Joe single “Lord Above.” Cannon released three diss tracks in response. 

Carey remains unbothered, becoming the first artist to break a new Billboard record.  

The five-time Grammy winner doesn’t appear to be romantically involved with either of the men who continue to invoke her name in their ongoing feud from a bygone era. When Carey appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen in 2014, the host asked her to say three nice things about Eminem. 

“They come in a package that you can carry wherever you go. Melts in your mouth, not in your hand. People love them around the world, and they’re tasty. You can have peanut or the regular kind,” Carey said, referring instead to the candy-coated cholate treat M&Ms. 

Released in 1994, “All I Want For Christmas Is You” became an instant classic. The song has managed to snag the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 in the 90s, 2000s, 2010s, and the single remains an unstoppable bop in 2020. 

While other artists like Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Madonna, and Usher, have managed the feat in three decades, Carey is in a league of her own. “All I Want For Christmas Is You” has become the highest-charting holiday single of all time. 

Carey tweeted her excitement, “Yaaaaaaaaay!!! WE. DID. IT. But… what’s a decade?”
