Hasn’t he learned anything from Anthony Weiner?
Comedian Mike Epps just exhibited the wrong way to use Twitter to his more than 2 million followers.
The married actor and father of 4, committed a cardinal social media sin when he coerced a female follower to send him a direct message.
The public conversation began when Epps, 44, said “hey” to user @CeciCitra and inquired the reason why she quit Instagram.
“Not anymore. Wasn’t getting the likes I deserve,” she replied.
Epps tried to move the conversation over to his personal inbox, but his wife of nine years, Mechelle Epps, interjected with a surprise tweet using the curious eyeballs emoji.
An hour later the woman shared a screenshot of Epps’ profile, showcasing that she had been blocked by the actor. “I. Am. Weak,” she tweeted.
