The radio host and television personality trolled Black women last night, asking why no one had created "a platform to be a voice like Tomi Lahren."
You may have seen Charlamagne Tha God’s name trending Tuesday on Twitter and wondered, “Why?”
Well, it seems The Breakfast Club co-host opened his mouth before doing a simple Google search and people are taking him to task for what seems like his continued gaslighting of women of color.
Twitter went in on Charlamagne after the radio host tweeted, “Would be dope if a young black or Hispanic ‘WOKE’ woman used social media to create a Platform to be a voice like Tomi Lahren did.”
Lahren, if you recall, has bolstered her platform by spewing hate-laced, inaccurate information about communities of color, comparing Black Lives Matter to the KKK and overall serving as a pundit sweetheart for white nationalism and racism.
If you don't like the narratives people are painting of you create your own platforms to control your own narratives.— Charlamagne Tha God (@cthagod) December 7, 2016

There are a number of progressive women speaking out against hate and issues we’re facing as our country continues to slide backwards and a number of Twitter users were quick to point that out, while others went in on Charlamagne for tweeting something so ignorant.
@cthagod but there are plenty who do, but their wokeness is looked at as "anger, bitter, black twitter feminist".— RedBottomKittenHeels (@NonOfYaBiznz) December 7, 2016

Hopefully, Charlamagne will do some research next time he thinks it’s a good idea to send out a tweet asking Black women to create a platform like Lahren’s. But if you’ve been following Charlamagne and are aware of the kind of person he is, then you know it’s probably not likely.
