The Dumbest Tweets of the Week
There are over 400 million tweets per day on Twitter. Our math department here at TheFW says that amounts to around 2.8 billion tweets a week. We’ve gone through each and every one of those tweets to bring you the 10 Dumbest Tweets of the Week.
Following the massive wake of tweets caused by former Rutgers coach Mike Rice and his epic flame out last week, a new batch of dumb found its way to Twitter this week in the form of ‘Accidental Racist‘ — the wildly misguided collaboration between Brad Paisley and LL Cool J. Twitter also had some stupid stuff to say about Wrestlemania, and the late Margaret Thatcher and Roger Ebert.
Notorious PAT, it sounds to us like you’re an on purpose racist.
That quote would land any Tweet on this list. But perhaps it’s only fair to see what LL Cool J had to say about the whole thing:

Wow. We had no idea LL Cool J knew how to write in ancient Hebrew. Impressive!
Hate to break it to you Hira, but it probably smells like a locker room.
We’re pretty sure John Cena is wrestling for money.
Me: How sad are you about Roger Ebert?! Coworker: Was that the fat one or skinny one?

Amber, you don’t sound very sad about Roger Ebert. Also your co-worker is a jerk.
Am I the only one who doesn’t know who margaret thatcher is? 😮 — Grainne(@grainne_TW_3eek) April 8, 2013
Not to worry Grainne, you are not alone.
Don’t know or care who Margaret Thatcher is tbh — A* (@princessannaox) April 8, 2013
Thanks for sharing, Princess! Margaret Thatcher would have admired your candor. At least there were some Hollywood luminaries out there who mourned the loss:
Since my last tweet I’ve learned of the sad passing of Margaret Thatcher. She remains an inspiration to all of us. May she rest in peace — Tara Reid (@TaraReid) April 8, 2013
Tara Reid’s performance in ‘Body Shots’ had the Iron Lady’s influence written all over it.
And to round out the Dumb Tweets this week, we give you the Mayor of Dumb Twitter, Jose Canseco:
