NYT deletes tweet about Michelle Obama that used offensive language



After the New York Times Styles Twitter account linked out to a story about Michelle Obama’s evolution as a political leader the tweet was deleted and new wording was used in a different tweet for the same story. 

The original post read, “How @FLOTUS shed an angry black woman caricature and evolved into a political powerhouse.” That tweet was deleted after many commented on the offensive language.

You deleted this, huh @NYTStyles? Should we discuss why it was ignorant to tweet it in the first place? Guess who created the caricature? 🤔 pic.twitter.com/Rzl2A4e7rw
