One year. One city. Endless opportunities.

Open Mouth, Insert Foot

Some comedian named Lil Duval made a big mistake -- he compared Detroit to Haiti on his Twitter account.

Here's the exact post:

This might come as a surprise to y'all but we having a city in America that look just as bad as Haiti it's called DETROIT

Now, it seems he's enjoying lots of comments from local residents here. Just reading the posts that follow shows that many, many people had something to say about that. Hee hee. I love it when Detroit stands up for itself.

Warning: As my friend Uncle Grambo says, this one is not for work. Lil Duval's Twitter account needs its mouth washed out with soap, so watch where you are when you read his posts.

(Thanks to WhutUpDoe, a new favorite site, for noticing it and posting the controversy on its Web site.)
