Please know that Maya Angelou is trending nationally because there are some young folks who are offended that she directed a young woman to call her Ms. Angelou instead of Maya in a 20-year-old clip. We are doomed. Yashar Ali 🐘's photo on Ms. Angelou

I love this Maya Angelou conversation because it’s also revealing who more naturally identifies as a child versus an adult. Ms. Angelou was talking to a child, a 14 year-old, not YOU — an adult that just seems to mostly identify as a 14 year-old. y’all took that personal as hell.

Ms. Angelou was and still is correct — it demonstrates respect for your elders and showcases manners. Ms. Angelou gently, but firmly, instructed her correctly in love. Everyone I know was raised this way. Any outrage shows that some need a refresher in this instruction.

ms. angelou if ya nasty
last thing, no one is arguing that she doesn’t deserve to be called whatever she likes...but she did the most and realized it about 10 mins later when another young black girl asked a question and emphasized the “Ms” in Ms Angelou while addressing her

@HotNeurologist @yashar To be honest, if Ms Angelou wanted me to call her ‘Ms. Angelou, Queen of all Poetry, For All Time’, I’d do it and just be happy she spoke to me at all. Just sayin

My heart breaks not for those youngins but for the parents who failed miserably to bring them up correctly. Respect is not , nor will it ever be a crime. Ms. Angelou, 20 years later or not, your respect is deserved.

Y’all are being so obtuse about this Maya Angelou video and it’s turning me off to a lot of people. Ms Angelou said “you, nor anyone else has the license to call me by my first name.” We literally have conversations about license and agency #onhere everyday.

My mom coming to whoop my ass if I had called Maya Angelou, Maya, to her face instead of Ms. Angelou. Travis Keys's photo on Ms. Angelou

But that detail underlines a pretty elemental fissure in second-wave feminism: neither "Ms." nor "Mrs." nor "Miss" were officially available to Mary Hamilton. Anyway, it's worth keeping all this in mind as you consider Maya Angelou's response.

The outrage behind this ancient clip of Maya Angelou wanting to be referred to as Ms. Angelou is just further evidence that mental illness is real and many are fearful of a professional diagnosis.

The only people upset with that Ms. Angelou video are people that's never been corrected on how to talk to their elders. My mom would've corrected me way before Ms. Angelou did. It ain't about ”she being extra”, it is purposeful. It's an understanding

In honor of #WomensHistoryMonth, the Campaign for Black Male Achievement celebrates Maya Angelou, the luminary poet, singer, memoirist, and civil rights activist. She will always be Ms. Angelou to us. #HERStory #LoveLearnLead #LoveLearnLead's photo on Ms. Angelou

@yashar For many years, white Southerners called African Americans by their first names (or called them "boy" or "girl" or worse), refusing to use courtesy titles like Mr. or Mrs. or Ms. That history helps give further context to Ms. Angelou's remarks.

Yup. I watched it a 2nd time. Same feelings. And you can tell Ms. Angelou realized she was being too harsh when she tried to soften it at the end. You know why I don't like the tone? It comes from the same place that doesn't honor & respect children. I don't parent like that.
15 Mar, 05:24 PM UTC
Anyone older than me will always be called Mr./Mrs./Ms. or Sir/Ma’am. Y’all doing the absolute most trying to go in on Maya Angelou. heterophobic.'s photo on Ms. Angelou

@ira If she was alive, they're stupid to think they're going to drag Ms Maya Angelou with words or run her a fade. They better google her, back in the day I'm fairly certain she carried a switch blade on the regular.

Regarding Ms. Angelou- it’s important to call people what they want to be called and to also show respect to elders. I just don’t think public chastising was appropriate for such an innocent mistake. “Call me Ms. Angelou, as I am your elder” would’ve sufficed.

Baby Ms. Angelou would’ve read y’all to sunrise. That wouldn’t have been the one to try.
15 Mar, 07:53 PM UTC
@PrinceCharmingP She could have just said "please call me Ms. Angelou" and kept it moving. She didn't have to belittle her because the girl meant no harm. Older people always want to check someone. Have several seats but don't break a hip going down, MS. ANGELOU.

Janet’s Got Her Comeback and I’m Emotional
But like.... we didn’t try to cancel Ms. Angelou. We didn’t try to drag Ms. Angelou. We weren’t angry at a dead woman or trying to pick a fight with her spirit. And i suspect y’all very well know that and are just full of shit
16 Mar, 12:43 AM UTC
Maya Angelou didn’t have to embarrass that girl on national television like that. A simple “call me Ms. Angelou” would have been fine
15 Mar, 10:50 PM UTC
who?, what?
@yashar @Ireland0828 @docrocktex26 @rick00979 @LesaPamplin WELL I’LL BE DAMN. Protesting because they can’t be disrespectful. Are we sure this isn’t some of trump’s dumb shyt? sounds like something he would do. Ms Angelou is the original Black Girl Magic. 🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️

Janet’s Got Her Comeback and I’m Emotional
(and this isn’t about Ms. Angelou because she’s dead and she apologized the day she did that, recognizing her delivery was wrong. This is about the people saying a child “deserves whatever she gets” for calling someone by their name...)

people jumping on Maya Angelou (rip) for demanding respect? that's a new one or low sir/mam in TX is pretty standard for all...know little about the woman, but she would def get a damn MS. and NEVER her 1st name unless asked me to...WTH y'all

They weren't equals. Unless Ms Angelou said "Call me Maya", she should be addressed correctly.

I wasn’t much of a fan, but kudos to Ms. Angelou. We need more of this today.

Lol do you really not know the answer to that question? Have you forgotten that youngsters have to call their elders starting with Mr./Mrs/Ms. and not just their first name as if they were friends of the same age or something? Thank God Ms. Angelou corrected the poor kid

How is a video from 1990 showing Late-Great Maya Angelou basically telling a young girl to Address her as "MS. Angelou" even a story? Never heard young person in my family evr greet Elder (Family or Not) by their First Name. I wld nvr address anybodys Grandma by their first name

@eugenegu I cannot find what started this ridiculous tempest, but it smells to high heaven. It would always be Ms. Angelou!

@Quiara Somebody posted a 30-year-old video of Maya Angelou correcting a teenage girl for addressing her as "Maya" instead of "Ms. Angelou" during a Q&A, and Twitter was Twitter about it.
16 Mar, 12:47 AM UTC
@HSidiqa Nobody knows her as “Ms” anything that’s what you can’t comprehend her name is Maya. Angelou not even her damn last name

@yashar For crying out fucking loud! They think they could just call her by her first name! Jesus! As respect, they need to all her Ms. Angelou! Knucklehead snowflakes!
16 Mar, 12:47 AM UTC
@PlaceForAnEcho The young girl was in the wrong for calling her by her first name, but I don’t think Ms. Angelou was correct in her delivery either. Just an opinion!
16 Mar, 12:46 AM UTC
@DLoesch I absolutely agree. “...I am your mother, your aunty...” to me this is beautiful and people should consider it an honour that this young girl was rebuked by someone like Ms. Maya Angelou. These days kids want respect for having done nothing.

"Ms. Angelou" Is there anything on earth that social justice warriors can't fuck up? 🤣 We all have to kowtow to 19 year-old transexuals, but the venerable black poetess isn't entitled to a hat tip from a sprat. As much as anything, SJW's hate GROWN UPS. lmao

@__erinbennett @RickyDaPrince1 I don't disagree with Ms. Angelou correcting her. But the last part about her being her mother, auntie, etc. was necessary to prove her point

When a science guy paints👨‍🔬
@pderevere @michellebhasin @yashar I didn’t think she was out of line at all. But neither was the girl. Just different standards of propriety. Ms. Angelou has every right to tell the girl how she would like to be addressed, and the girl should be excused in her mistake prior to knowing.
16 Mar, 12:44 AM UTC
The story is why this child was calling her Maya in the first place and not Ms. Angelou. Where her parents at?

Yes, Ms. Angelou 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾 My biggest pet peeve is when people call adults by their first name... it’s so disrespectful to me. And yes, I know I’m an adult, but they’re like the adult to my adult. Does that make sense? 😆

@ira I want to know who patient zero was in the attempted dragging of Ms Angelou. I WANT A NAME.
