Celebrities and athletes may be one of the biggest highlights of the social network, Twitter, when it comes to keeping people tuned in and entertained. For some celebrities, the network has been a gold mine for furthering their careers, and for others, it's been nothing more than an embarrassment — to themselves, landing them on the biggest loser list at theroot.com.
What's interesting is that the majority of our black celebrity men have made the loser list, with the exception of a few women.
Chris Brown, Tyrese, 50 Cent, Kanye West, Stevie Johnson, Carmelo Anthony, Tiger Woods, MC Hammer, Mary J. Blige, Jasmine Sullivan, Toni Braxton, Matt Barnes, Bow Wow, and LeVar Burton, are all included on the list of losers for having alleged issues ranging from being tricks, attention whores, ignorant, mentally ill, confused, uneducated, insecure, lonely, demonized, hypocritical, and just plain useless. Well, maybe not exactly in that order of terminology, but that pretty much sums up why they've lost in the eyes of The Root; some of which I have to agree.[mashshare]
