Black Twitter Slams The Oregonian for ‘Who Is Yolanda Adams?’ Headline

Welp, it looks like The Oregonian won’t be picking up any new subscribers from Black Twitter.

The Portland-based newspaper got ripped, slammed and dragged Sunday after tweeting out a link to an article with the headline: “Who is Yolanda Adams, Super Bowl 2020?s ‘America The Beautiful’ singer?”

Black Twitter quickly schooled the paper by letting it know a simple Google search would have revealed the gospel singer is a legend. She has multiple Grammy Awards and was named Billboard Magazine Gospel Artist of the Last Decade. She’s also served as a judge on the BET gospel competition series Sunday Best.

Twitter users took aim at The Oregonian by posting hundreds of comments in response to its tweet.

“Delete this immediately, this not how we doing #BlackHistoryMonth,” one person replied.

“No one black works at the Oregonian, huh?” someone else responded.

A third person wrote, “Please hire some black people.”

While someone else said, “Collective Black disapproval.”

Even the BET Gospel Twitter account chimed in writing, “Uh! @YolandaAdams is a LEGEND and she knows the devil is BUSY AND A LIAR!”

The Oregonian was on a roll Sunday, and also disrespected popstar Demi Lovato — who sang the national anthem at the big game — with a headline asking: “Who is Demi Lovato?”

FYI, Lovato is a 27-year-old former Disney star. She served as a judge on the X-Factor and has been nominated for two Grammys.
