Twitter Clowns Killer Mike, a Failed Attempt to Call MSNBC's Joy Reid
"So, egg on my face," he said in his apology.
Killer Mike is having a difficult time in social media. Less than a month after becoming a trending topic for her controversial appearance at the National Rifle Association's television channel, the Run The Jewels member crashed again by a failed attempt to expose MSNBC's Joy Reid on Instagram.
Reid was one of Mike's most prominent critics after his infamous interview with NRATV, and it appears that the veteran MC was waiting for her slip. The MSNBC host wrote, "H&M" in an Instagram post, and Mike, I guess that I was supporting the retailer in a fashion that caused an uproar by his racist ad. Unfortunately for him, this was not the case.
And not to be outdone... @glamluxxe and Cynthia, who rocked the H&M for Elgin Baylor to shoot! #AMJoy #GlamSquad

Reid applauded again when she noticed that H&M is an abbreviation for hair and makeup before making reference to the sunken place of Jordan Peele of the hit movie Out.
"'H&M' is 'the hair and make-up,' Mike," she replied. "The two women next to me in this photo that I did to my hair (H) and makeup (M) to a shoot. The blouse I'm wearing is by @norisolferrari and I doubt that you can buy in the retail chain you are thinking of. (I get it from the designer through a stylist.) And here I was thinking you are an intellectual, and not just the kind that hangs out in the sunken place of talk-in-arms with the national rifle association official black man' that literally changed your name to 'black.'"
Mike apologized and acknowledged his mistake, but the damage was already done. Twitter is filled with users, and making fun of his failed attempt to call out Reid.
To Be Clear it is not the t
