BRB Gone Viral, Pop Culture

50 times #BlackoutEid brought the house down on Twitter – again

We're in constant awe of the slayage happening here.

It’s officially a tradition, and we’re here for it. Every Eid, Black Muslims show the world just how incredible they really are – and we’re just blessed to be able to witness it.

In a statement to The Tempest during last Eid, the creator of the tag, @krennylavitz, wanted to create a space specifically for Black Muslims online. Using twitter as her platform, she hoped to leverage the playing field a bit, as Black Muslim beauty isn’t typically showcased due to anti-blackness. Why wait around to be represented, right?

Now that it’s Eid Al-Adha, the hashtag is back and better than ever! Take a look through some of our favorite #BlackOutEid tweets.
