A wise woman once said that the booty don't lie. Well, neither does black Twitter.
After Vogue published an ill-advised article crediting Iggy Azalea and Miley Cyrus for making the big butt a fashionable accessory, black Twitter users decided to put an end to the magazine's entitled appropriation.
The hashtag #VogueArticles was born. Twitter's been misattributing history's greatest black discoveries for several days now, and each one is even funnier than the last. There are also a few hesitant white additions, shyly made.
Black Twitter demands that publications like Vogue stop and think before publishing articles like "The Dawn of the Butt." And, mostly, there are a lot of pretty apt Vogue parodies.
