"Wyclef does an AMA. Internet goes in...."


          

AMA is ask me anything.

People quickly question his charity, his presidential run, etc. Wyclef deletes reddit account. Wyclef gone.

shitty questions get downvoted, but only a certain type of person would even go in a Wyclef AMA and none of them would have been happy.

Pras woulda got a better reception.

As a young songwriter myself, I have a question for you.

What's a good fake charity I could start up to rob people of money who really need it?

Thanks so much.

Nothing negative about this dude would surprise me. I've always thought he was an asshole and never particularly loved his music like so many others seemed to, so in other words my general opinion of the dude is strongly negative. Anyway somehow I know nothing about this charity thing so any brief info would help.

Someone asked him a question about him sleeping with his girlfriend or something, to which everyone started referencing it, and he/his PR person/some studio shill just kept saying "Can we talk about Rampart?" (The movie he was promoting at the time).

It's since become a Reddit meme.

So either way, Clef was gonna get roasted - but he's better off bouncing.

(Edit) Now with the Woody AMA link : https://m.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/p9a1v/im_woody_harrelson_ama

I dont think he knew this was an Ask Me Anything post. Every time anyone asked him anything he was like I want to talk about Rampart. I mean he was doing publicity for Rampart at the time. 9 times out of 10 its the actors publicist that sets up the AMA. They probably forgot to tell him he would be answering any and all questions and not just Rampart related questions.

... Can the questions be filtered a week or two in advance? This way the artist knows what they're getting into.

thing where an artist who was feeling adventurous could opt in, on a per question basis, on some of the more out there questions.

that would be fantastic.

of course, erykah would be the bestest at that.

plus archiving those joints would be a real good way to build up unique and quality content.
