If you happen to be perusing Twitter today, you will most likely stumble upon various tweets that include the trending hashtag #youpeople. Thanks to Ann Romney, wife of presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, a Twitter trend was born when she allegedly committed the unpardonable sin of using “you people” in a sentence.
The Twitter outrage was sparked when Ann Romney told ABC News, “We’ve given all you people need to know,” in regards to the Romney family finances, according to the Huffington Post.
It is a universally acknowledged fact that whenever someone uses the phrase “you people,” you can be pretty darn sure that someone is going to take offense, since the politically incorrect phrase generally propagates stereotypical grouping of a certain race, class or gender. If you doubt this fact, look to the hundreds of #youpeople tweets that have gone out to the Twitterverse in response to Ann Romney’s verbal blunder.
People were offended by Romney’s #youpeople comment, and they took to Twitter to express themselves in 140 smart-ass characters or less. We couldn’t help but compile a list of the top 10 most entertaining #youpeople tweets of the day.
