Because of the Internet: Tommie Lee, The Get Down, and Jay Versace

Netflix original, The Get Down, has seen it's first and last season and Black Twitter is not here for it! The Baz Luhrmann musical drama depicts the transition from Disco to Hip Hop in the Bronx during the 70's.

Luhrmann took to his Facebook to pen a lengthy post that sums up the reason why the show won't get a second season. Nope, not ratings, his own personal interest in moving on. 

“This exclusivity has understandably become a sticking point for Netflix and Sony, who have been tremendous partners and supporters of the show. It kills me that I can’t split myself into two and make myself available to both productions… But the simple truth is, I make movies"

Of course, Black Twitter doesn't want to hear this neither do they buy this explanation.


If Tommie Lee is the only reason you still watch Love and Hip Hop Atlanta get ready to find a replacement show. Last night Tommie went live on Instagram to confirm she would not be returning for the next season of LHHATL. According to Tommie, the show is having a negative effect on her family so she'll "bow out gracefully". 



The formula is simple; get a wig, make some ridiculous faces while lip syncing the classics, post it to YouTube and you're Jay Versace famous! Unfortunately, the internet famous teen isn't trending because of his latest viral video, the trend is actually more of a drag. Versace took to his now deleted Twitter account to "out" Mindless Behavior group member Princeton Perez for sliding in his DM. Perez doesn't claim to be in the closet but he also doesn't "broadcast" he's gay, hence why Jay Versace is being dragged.
