Grimes Calls Out Elon For 'Pronouns Suck' Tweet, Twitter Madness Ensues

Grimes has officially joined Kim Kardashian in begging their posting partners to step away from the keyboard. On Friday, Elon Musk tweeted a what sounded like a very J.K. Rowling transphobic message of "Pronouns suck." His partner, the Canadian pop star Grimes, promptly responded "I love you but please turn off ur phone or give me a dall [sic], I cannot support hate. Please stop this. I know this isn't your heart."

She quickly deleted the tweet, but speedy Twitter users screenshot the tweet and it spread like wildfire. Women like Grimes and Kim Kardashian having to rein in their thoughtless and post-happy partners is something the internet appears to eat up with relish. But Grimes wasn't the only person to call Elon out for his offensive take. Many users replied attempting to mock or chastise the billionaire - including Chasten Buttigieg. The tweet is still up, so we're willing to bet the messages have fallen on deaf ears. And based on the couple's antics (naming their child X Æ A-12, for one) we're gonna go ahead and assume there will be more weirdness and drama to come. Which is cool, cuz it's nice to read about something other than mass unemployment and pandemic deaths.

JK Rowling Under Fire For Transphobic Tweets

JK Rowling, the author of the beloved Harry Potter books, is receiving a whole lot of criticism after tweeting several transphobic sentiments over the weekend. The internationally acclaimed writer took to Twitter with claims that a) you have to be a woman to menstruate, and b) trans women aren't actually women - and that their "claim" of the sex undermines the experiences of true women. 

Rowling has a long history of being a TERF (trans-exclusionary radical feminist), and she's not alone. Doctor Who writer Gareth Roberts has been widely criticized for anti-trans tweets, and Graham Lineman (creator of The IT Crowd) has never been shy about his own TERF beliefs. Rowling just seems to get more attention for her backwards beliefs because she of her influence as the author of the Harry Potter series. She's very visible, and many people on Twitter have been quick to decry her exclusionary views. And we can't blame them. For someone who is heralded for bringing diversity to her imaginary wizarding world, she falls very short within her own politics. And the following Twitter users were eager to call her out.

Transphobes Get Roasted With This Fresh Twitter Meme

Right-leaning YouTuber Blair White published a tweet the other day that's been getting mocked and criticized for being seen as transphobic. The tweet insinuates that some trans people demand too much from society and in turn label society as "bigoted" for not delivering.

What makes this scenario a little more complicated is that Blair herself is a trans woman. So in case you're tempted to write this off as a non-issue based on that fact, just remember that one person's experiences and opinions don't speak for everyone else in that group!

The resulting Twitter memes started out as your basic roasts and have since gotten weirder and weirder, just the way we like 'em - see for yourself!
