7. Game's Beef With LA Sheriff's Department
Date: August 12, 2011
Tweeter: The Game
Tweet: Yall can track a tweet down but cant solve murders ! Dat was an accident but maybe now yall can actually do yall job !!!! #iSpeak4ThePeople
Description: In what was likely another publicity stunt to promote Game’s new R.E.D. Album, Game’s Twitter account alerted his 500,000-plus followers that he was looking for music interns, then tweeted the number to the Los Angeles sheriff’s department. The department was about to press charges, but decided against it after Game appeared on CNN, where he apologized and insisted that the tweet was from a friend. That wasn’t before he tweeted the above, though. Who’s the more useless diss target: Jay-Z, or the Compton Sheriff?
