Singer Halsey has been coming under fire for cracking jokes about black people receiving superpowers. We know, it sounds crazy. More inside…

We know you’ve heard about it. Did you get your superpowers yesterday?

Over the last few weeks, Black people have been joking about receiving “superpowers” on December 21, 2020. It’s been a running joke on social media.

So how did it all start?

A Twitter user (@lottidot) hopped on Twitter to accuse the government of using the COVID-19 vaccine to change our genetic code.

”As black people, genetically we are stronger and smarter than everyone else, we are more creative, on December 21 our Real DNA will be unlocked and majority will be able to do things that we thought were fiction. Learn who u are as a people,” @lottidor tweeted.

Her tweet launched hundreds of memes which cracked jokes about criteria to receive the potential powers and more.

The tweet ended up taking on a life of its own:

 

“December 21,” “Negro Solstice,” “Soulstice,” and “Black Twitter” started trending on Twitter.

 

 

 

 

Biracial singer Halsey – who has been open about her white-passing privilege preiviously – also joined in on the superpower jokes:

Halsey is mixed. Her mother, Nicole, is of Italian and Hungarian descent and her father, Chris, is of African-American and Irish ancestry.

 

People have been coming for her since she shared posts about getting her “powers activated.”

 

 

Oop.

She joked about being dragged before the backlash:
