Hey Bros!

Welcome to Twitter in Focus where media comes to die!  Today’s contestant is Aaron McGruder, creator of the Boondocks and the brand new, Black Jesus.  He’s a funny guy, let’s see what he’s tweeting!


March 27th:  “From fans I would honestly appreciate the support of Black Jesus and The Boondocks. Thank you”

Of course.  Both have the amazing Charlie Murphy, amongst others.

April 21st:  “Today is the day everyone . :) Hope your all excited as I am.”

I watched it.  Good stuff!

April 21st:  “Super excited for you guys to see how this season is going to turn out.”

It went by fast, but that’s animation for ya.  Can’t crank out the shows as fast.

April 21st:  “Who’s watching the new season of The Boondocks? How is it? :)”

Relax, Aaron.  It’s genius!

April 21st:  “Just 5 more minuets.”

The return of Stinkmeaner was my favorite.

April 21st:  “Yes! It is time !!!”

Yes it was.

May 16th:  “Already dozing off. (emoticons)”

Oh, man.  Those emoticons did not translate well when I tried to post this.  Lost everything and had to redo the entire column!

May 18th:  “Happy Sunday everyone! God Bless”

Need more behind-the-scenes stuff, Aaron.  What’s Charlie Murphy doing?

May 29th:  “Thank you to all if you who has wished me a happy birthday, love you all for the support & wishes :)”

Well, birthdays are personal.  Need to share more, I think.  But, then again, I do the same thing.  If you have to be bad at something, be bad at tweeting.

June 15th:  “Happy Fathers Day to all the Fathers out there.”

Big gaps in the timeline.

June 17th:  “I want to thank all those who support me & my work. I truly appreciate you all. I have and will continue to thank you all.”

No problem. Thanks for making cool stuff.

July 23rd:  “Hope everyone is ready for Black Jesus. August 7th, 2014 only on Adult Swim. ””

We did.  I like the positivity of the show.

August 6th:  “Just only one more day until the premier of Black Jesus comes on Adult Swim 11/10C.”

I’m up to three episodes, definitely worth watching.

August 7th:  “Stay tuned because Black Jesus is tonight, the wait is almost over!”

The cast from the Boondocks is also in it.  John Witherspoon and Charlie Murphy are the two I know.  No Cedric Yarbrough yet.

August 7th:  “I hope everyone is watching and enjoying Black Jesus.”


August 8th:  “I want to say thank you again for all the support, it’s humbling to see that so many people have stuck with me, thank you so much everyone.”

That’s nice.

Okay, let’s rate Aaron’s tweets.  I give him a 5 for Mustness, a 6 for Insanity and a 10 for Style. That’s an overall score of 7.  Follow Aaron.  At least you’ll know what TV shows he’s premiering.
