Iggy was off social media for a month. But the next day, she posted this tweet, seemingly in response to Badu’s side-eye:

Like I said in my original post, Erykah Badu lives to f-ck you up. So, early this morning, this:

But that’s far, far, far from the best tweet to have come out of this situation. Erykah shading Iggy gave us probably the most beautiful moment Twitter has ever produced.
