I don’t believe Kevin Samuels is dead, for the record. But me not feeling bad if he is doesn’t mean I’m “celebrating” it. He went out of his way to be cruel.
We are not required to mourn virtues he didn’t show. And asking black women, of all ppl, to show tact is audacious

idk why ppl having the opinion “if you glad kevin samuels might be dead then you’re weird”.
everything i saw about that man was him being misogynistic, fatphobic, and anti-black, and he just constantly perpetuated harmful rhetoric and bigotry to incels. who cares either way tbh

Dead or not. Kevin Samuels wasn’t the reason why you couldn’t get a man… He told you the reason and you got offended.

Kevin Samuels has made a career off of shamelessly disgracing Black women for profit.
He emboldened the most toxic individuals to project tired and harmful narratives about Black women.
Dead or alive, what a disgraceful life to live.
That's all I've got for that misogynist.
