Remy Ma used to say on Twitter (or was it Instagram?) that she loved to throw block parties. I stole that saying from her. If I read something that genuinely gets under my skin on social media, I’ll just block. I’ve lost interest altogether in figuring out why you said what you said — as long as I’ve read the thread of replies. I’m just not interested in letting someone complain me to about their -isms. I used to. I don’t know.
