If you keep up with The Shade Room, there's a good chance you've been keeping up with the Young Thug-Jerrika Karlae drama.

And the crazy part about it? People are loving it - and see the death threat as passion for his woman. Um, can we talk about how wild and disrespectful this is?
Women deserve so much better than infidelity and disrespect. There's a pattern on Twitter to fetishize and glamorize controlling partners who don't take no for an answer.

I'm tired of Twitter glorifying abusive men who double as unfaithful and disrespectful. Twitter, please re-evaluate what you call goals and stop glamorizing potentially abusive situations. Come on, y'all:
