LL Cool J, ACM Awards 2012, freemasonry

Twitter either shows our society at its best (as when 140 character outpourings of condolence flooded the service when Whitney Houston died) and it’s worst. On Sunday (April 1), tweeters were arguably showing us their worst side when the term “#WhyisLLCoolJ” started trending on Twitter.

Basically the Country Music Awards viewers were confused as to why was LL Cool J’s a black man be at a country music event. Check out some of the tweets:

Other presenters included the rock legends KISS (in full makeup) and “Hunger Games” star Liam Hemsworth, but I guess they fit in with the CMA cause of the color of the skin. Thoughts?

On a lighter note..LL Cool J featured in April Fools day Gmail tap Video
