And this little gem…
You ned to just quit it Christelyn, you ruined bossip with your obsession with swirling. NEWSFLASH-Most Black men and women still and will always only date other black people, we remain the least likely to swirl. Stiop forcing this tired topic down our throats-you sound insecure sister.
I “ruined” Bossip?! LMAO!!!
Funny thing is, the post wasn’t up three seconds before these folks felt some compelled to respond. Me thinks so folks are getting very, very nervous.
