The Biggest Social Media Fails of 2013 (So Far)

5. #AskDraya

BET's 106 & Park started the #AskDraya hashtag as a friendly way to allow fans to reach out to Basketball Wives LA reality star Draya Michele, who was set to appear on the show later that week. But what started as a good idea turned out to be a Twitter session gone horribly wrong.

25-year-old video vixen, Andraya Michele Howard, was arrested in 2010 on a charge of endangering the welfare of a child when she left her 7-year-old son at home alone while she was [allegedly] out stripping. Twitter users took full advantage of the #AskDraya hashtag started by 106 & Park to bash her relentlessly with sarcastic questions and shower her with hate. We're guessing BET did not expect the hashtag to backfire the way that it did. One Twitter user tweeted a statement that sums up the whole fiasco perfectly: "#AskDraya might be the only way her son can reach her."
