Twitter Is Having Too Much Fun Roasting the Author of a JAY-Z Hit Piece
Myron Magnet, 73, said hip-hop is "anti-music — devoid of harmony, beauty, structure, transcendence or thought"
Myron Magnet is not the name of an obscure Hanna-Barbera villain but instead a real-life right-wing journalist whose accomplishments include, among other things, informing George W. Bush's public policies.
For his publication City Journal, Magnet wrote the most cantankerous piece called "Cut the C-Rap," wherein he argues that JAY-Z's lyrics are somehow bad for black people. He uses stanzas that are now over two decades old before dropping the bombshell that rap "is anti-music — devoid of harmony, beauty, structure, transcendence, or thought."
Shared late last night, the first tweet with the article has since been ratio'd — the dreaded fate of all stupid opinions on the world's worst website. That's because people simply can't stop roasting Myron Magnet and his marvellous mutton chops.
Enjoy some of the best Myron roasts below.

Morale is low. The help continues to chant their unstructured hymnals in the fields. I miss my beloved Belle & Sebastian. However, we must press on. Send 8-tracks soon.
