Jada Prather Badly Reviews "For Colored Girls" As I Live-Tweet It

Jada Prather and Danielle Belton 2009The year is 2010. The man is Jada Prather. The Twitter is mine and the thread shall live in infamy.

Since Jada didn't have Twitter at the time (he now does), I feared he would be mad that I'd tweeted his impromptu review of "For Colored Girls," but instead he was proud and it made him join Twitter (finally). 

The review fell in the both unintentional and intentionally funny zone. It is still a source of happy pride for him to this day.

And now, here it is, preserved for all to read ...

As always with Twitter, read from the bottom up.
