    Early Friday morning, a brave citizen named Natasha Tynes boarded the Washington, D.C., Metro with her pockets and soul apparently overflowing with an abundance of :censored: that she intended on disbursing throughout the day. Upon boarding, our brave Natasha spotted a black woman dressed in a Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority uniform, sitting alone, eating, which is obviously against the rules.

    Now, you or I might have seen this scofflaw and presumed something stupid, like: “Well, maybe this black lady dressed in her work clothes is hungry.” But Natasha is better than us. Plus, we must remember that she bore the burden of being heavy-laden with supplemental :censored: that she wanted to—no, had to—donate to the masses. So at that moment—in a situation when no one would have done so— Natasha decided to give a :censored:

    Natasha warned the black woman who was blatantly committing the terrorist act of chewing and swallowing, that her actions were “unacceptable. But when the woman rightfully told Natasha to kick rocks and mind her own business, Natasha pulled out her phone, took a picture of the woman, and ran to Twitter:

    [​IMG]

    Now, you or I might not understand the impetus for Natasha’s actions. That’s because you likely aren’t gifted with a mutated snitching gene like Natasha. She’s kinda like an X-Man. But instead of the ability to control the weather, shoot eye-lasers or retract adamantium claws without a manicure, Natasha’s tattletale has evolved to the point where she can summon anyone’s superior at any time. Her X-Man Name is SpeakToYourManageria X.

    When the MTA replied, Natasha wouldn’t let the :censored: go. She executed the full snitch, not some non-superhero regular people complaint. This is because Natasha is an Informer, which is like a Caucasian Transformer.

    [​IMG]

    Luckily a keen-eyed member of the Black Twitter Avengers spotted Natasha’s dustup and called her out:


    [​IMG]

    Soon, black women on Twitter came to thank Natasha for her snitching powers. And when they found out that Natasha is an author who trumpets her minority status (I know, because her name is Natasha, I assumed she was black, too), of course, they got petty:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Let this be a lesson to you all.

    If, by chance, you are ever tempted to call the authorities on a black person for doing something that absolutely affects no one, such as eating or inhaling oxygen, ask yourself these three questions:

    1. Why?
    2. No, seriously. Why?
    3. What the :censored:, man? Why?
    And if you still don’t have a reasonable answer, find some business of your own, mind it, tuck your auxiliary :censored: back in your pocket and save it for a more appropriate time, when you are supposed to give a :censored:.

    Of course, I searched Natasha’s timeline and she doesn’t have much to say about police brutality, racism or inequality. But a black woman eating?

    Oh, she’ll runtelldat.

    She didn’t like that this black woman didn’t bow down to her but instead told her to mind her damn business.

    I don’t understand people that try to get folks fired over bs. That is so cold hearted! People have families to feed.

    Her good reads reviews are in the toilet :toocool: this was one of my favorites. There are thousands of reviews and she is currently at 1.44 stars out of 5. There are several gems in the reviews. 873FA942-B554-44CC-B867-8D413BBBD5B0.png

    Eat glass.....Darn!!!

    She should've minded her business though. I swear it seems like some white/white adjacent folks have some flashbacks to an old slave catcher ancestor or as my friend says they take that dominion over the earth thing in the bible real literal. They can't help but feel some sort of way when black people dont recognize their "authority. " Interestingly the women seem to react more extreme escalating the situation so someone will "wrangle that black person" into submission it seem.

    Yep. Seems harsh at first glance but then I remember that this is actually what she tried to do to this woman. She was playing with someone else's livelihood for no good reason. Now she's getting it right back. Honestly its not even the same because she's getting it back for a good reason.

    She's coming across like an overseer.

    I wonder what her conversations sound like when she tells people she lost her book deal. How exactly is she making herself out to be the victim because you know she's not taking responsibility for any of this.

    I suspect they'll get smarter and start using fake twitter accounts when they have something to lose but hopefully I'm wrong. She thought she was in the right and didn't expect any consequences so she wouldn't have done anything different.

    I'm truly at a loss. What about this lady in uniform sitting down eating warranted what she did? I can bet it was probably because she didn't have a seat and felt like this worker shouldn't have been sitting down comfortably eating (which she probably was rushing scarfing down her food because it would be her only time to eat between shifts. Been there!) while she had to stand.

    I'm so glad she lost her book deal. I feel like what happened to her is exactly the same as what she did to this transit worker. Wanna report someone to their boss, welp we can do that too.

    Not siding with the author, but the DC Metro has a history of arresting folks for eating on the metro.:lachen:But Natasha The Snitch should have minded her business....next hope The World Bank where she is employed review their association with her..this is nothing but that (not so) subtle racism...

    Natasha was hangry and jealous because she only had a dry lettuce sandwich to look forward to for lunch.

    It's just so disturbing how white people cannot handle seeing someone - especially a black person - do something they've been told they cannot. You'll live not being able to eat on the metro the same way we live watching white people skate through life doing things we can't. Like I really want to know the name of the missing piece that makes them erupt in rage over something so stupid.

    If only it were limited to things they can’t do or aren’t supposed to do. It’s literally everything.

    I would never report anyone for eating on the train. Let the powers that be find out on their own.

    It’s not that hard to mind your business. Getting someone possibly fired something so minor is evil. Not to mention you have no idea of the chain reaction you are setting off.

    Mind. Your. Business.

    Damn! Thank God for Twitter. It had become a powerful medium for the black community.

    It's funny that my first thought if I'd seen this woman eating would be that she's working a double shift and trying to eat quickly because she won't be able to for the next 8-10 hours (I've been there my dang self). I would've shrugged and went on bout my business.

    Some white people will always view us in a negative light. I'm glad that light is shining right back in Natasha's face.

    She would sue black twitter if she could. Glad she's going after an entity that has the resources to fight her in court.

    Well she can forget about her defamation and conspiracy to defame claims. I assume she threw them in for good measure but the distributor is in no way responsible for her "ruined reputation". Her tweet is. It's possible in fact that if the distributor hadn't pulled out they would have suffered the same online humiliation and backlash as she did. And if their in house counsel is petty they'll counter sue her for the same claiming her tweet could have caused potential risk to their business and any association with her at this point does the same.

    As far as everything else. I'd have to see the contract but I'd be surprised if a company like this didn't have a loophole somewhere allowing them to back out if a deal becomes problematic.

    I'm leery of SM due to what happened in the last election but there's no denying it's been a great equalizer in terms of amplifying our voices and shaming people like this woman.

    The nosy lady didn't know if the employee had a health condition where she needed to eat. Better for folks to mind their own business.

    Wow at this thread.
    I'm probably alone on this one but I can't help thinking the responses would be different if a black woman reported a white employee for breaking the rules by eating on the train :rolleyes:.
    It would have been 'white people think they can do whatever they want, always breaking the rules!' LOL. This woman's mistake was not DMing DC Metro...

    I'll see myself out :abducted:.
