Whether by naming her crew “The White Girl Mob,” launching Twitter beefs with Rick Ross, or blithely condoning her friend V-Nasty’s use of the N word, Oakland-born rapper Kreayshawn seems hell-bent on ruining her own reputation.

Kreayshawn blames trolls for the spate of racist tweets that were attributed to her yesterday, with such lines as “Sometimes I wish slavery was still goin’ on,” etc. Not surprisingly, the tweets instantly went viral, and Kreayshawn’s critics rushed to pronounce her career dead. This morning hip-hop sites showed the rapper issuing a feeble apology, claiming she’d been usurped. Granted, the apology looks fake, too:
Update: A previous version of this post said that Kreayshawn had been hacked. In fact, she was a victim of fake retweets.
