Since the outbreak of the pandemic, blacks on social media have started giving flowers to their favorites while they are still alive.
This week was no exception. On May 6, Twitter exploded with a thank you post to forever young actress Nia Long. The 50-year-old beauty was all the rage on the social media platform after Twitter user @AuxGod posted a photo of Long, aged 25 and 50, side by side – with practically no difference.
“Nia Long at 25. Nia Long at 50” was the headline.
