Here are five things you may have missed on Twitter this week.

Friday Five Weekly Twitter Roundup | The Girl Next Door is Black


1. Renee Zellweger strolled onto the red carpet wearing a different face this week. Of course, Twitter had something to say about it. #ReneeZellweger



2.Supermodel Chrissy Teigen ditched Twitter for the calmer waters of Instagram after her tweet condemning gun violence in the US resulted in death threats. #ChrissyTeigen



3. Don’t send for Shonda Rhimes on Twitter unless you want her to come for you. When some viewers tweeted their disapproval of “gay scenes” in last week’s How to Get Away with Murder, Shonda took them to task. #ShondaRhimes



4. This week in Ebola and people with no damned sense. #ebola



5. Bloomberg tweeted something racially suspect and quickly deleted it, but not before Twitter saw it and screen-capped it!



Have a great weekend everyone!

    Thanks for this. I enjoyed it.
    I was actually on Twitter in real time when Shonda posted those tweets…
    The one about Zelwegger and God was really funny.

      Glad you liked it!

      I love that Shonda will interact with not just fans, but her detractors. You don’t get that kind of interaction from a lot of people in TV / film.

        That’s pretty awesome. I don’t follow many celebs, but she is so smart and such a powerhouse. How can you be a female writer and not love her?
