No Filter: This Is Not Brittani Nichols’ Problem

Greetings, friends! As you’re reading this, I’m far far away on a non-mountain in Mukwonago, WI, anxiously awaiting the arrival of 300 nerds at A-Camp. The bad news is that I won’t be able to monitor K-Stew’s every move as doggedly as usual, but the good news is that a whole lot of this column’s regulars will be there. Will you?

Pop into the replies to this tweet to see several people (including yours truly) offering Brittani musical accompaniment for this, the song of the summer.

None of us deserve Evan Rachel Wood, a true gift.
Danielle Brooks as an actual emoji.
Queen Latifah’s like, “You can’t tell me what to do, I am literally Queen Latifah, and what am I doing in this column?!?!?” Nobody knows.

  1. OMFG. This is a masterful vapid fluff post. The content is ooooh sooo gooooooood and the order packs an emotional punch. I did not expect to go from humor to joy to lust and back to to joy in such as short space of time.
