Wiz Khalifa Rants About Amber Rose On Twitter, Doesn't He Know This Never Ends Well?
It looks like this rapper will definitely not be reuniting with his former love this Valentine's Day. Wiz Khalifa ranted about ex-wife Amber Rose on Twitter in early February. After a fan tweeted at him, "get your wife back," Khalifa fired back, "no thanks" to the fan. He followed that with a heap of insulting tweets seemingly directed at the model, one of which said, "A woman who would do something to a kid to spite that kids father is a foul creature."
Khalifa did not offer many specifics in his tweets, but he continued on to say, "that’s pretty much the only thing that can spin my universe out of control…Sucks when people try to use that against you but the cool part is figuring out how much self control you have.” He did say that his son was doing well, but it's pretty clear that his former relationship remains on the rocks. And it looks like the theme of the former couple taking their grievances about lost love to social media is continuing on.
Of course, it's always sad to see a relationship derail past its expiration date, but the social media aspect seems to make it even sadder in a way. Putting your dirty laundry out there virtually on Twitter is not all that different than fighting with someone in person a public place. And with social media, it's much more permanent. Passersby that have nothing to do with your relationship can always remember it via screen caps, even if you later delete the tweets. In short, picking fights on social media never seems to go well, and Rose and Khalifa are certainly not the first celebs to see this.
From Nick Cannon calling Chelsea Handler "ugly white trash" in response to a diss from her about his comedy skills to Snow White and the Huntsman director's ex-wife Liberty Ross dissing Kristen Stewart on Instagram through a picture of a drunken Snow White, it seems that there is an ongoing trend of celebrities using social media as an outlet for starting feuds. But however rampant and widespread it may be, you rarely hear of any good coming of these feuds. At best it is passive aggressive, like Katy Perry's infamous "Regina George in sheep's clothing" tweet, speculated to be directed at former friend Taylor Swift. At worst, it is mean spirited and makes the people involved in the feud seem hateful and bitter, even if they aren't.
It is worth asking why Khalifa (and Rose, since she's done her fair share of sub-tweeting her ex-husband) would want to be a part of that collective, especially since they have a young child to look after. Maybe they feel that they can no longer communicate in person. Maybe these tweets are about seeking attention. It's hard to say for sure, but let's hope that they don't continue to bring their child into this ongoing drama as Khalifa did with his tweet — and hope that at some point they can address their problems without the whole Twitterverse watching!
