#WhiteGirlsRock hashtag appears during Black Girls Rock awards show
During “Black Girls Rock” an awards show aimed at celebrating the beauty of black women, a few clueless imbeciles bashed the show on Twitter. As previously reported, the program hosted by Tracee Ellis Ross and Regina King brought out a bevy of beauties to the Performing Arts Center in Newark, N.J., for awards that recognized greats like Patti LaBelle and Queen Latifah for their accomplishments.
And while most people on social media gave positive commentary via the #BlackGirlsRock hashtag, others just couldn’t help but wonder why white girls, who are clearly celebrated during the Emmys and Oscars, didn’t get a “White Girls Rock” program.

Luckily more than a few people quickly broke down why a #WhiteGirlsRock hashtag would be completely redundant.
White folks really made a hashtag called #whitegirlsrock …what’s next, A movie titled ‘400 Years A Slave Owner’?
