Retta Live-Tweeting the Emmys 2014

Retta's Annoying Seat-Filler Is Even More Annoying Than We Previously Thought

Parks and Recreation star Retta attended the Emmy Awards on Monday night, but her glamorous night wasn't without a few bumps. The actress live-tweeted her interactions with an annoying seat-filler during the show, providing some hilarious entertainment for her many followers. Read her tweets below.

After Monday's show, the target of Retta's tweets outed himself on Twitter as Alexandrew "Alex" Khazai. He claimed that he wasn't a seat-filler, but he didn't offer up the reason why he was seated in such a great spot among celebrities like Retta nor why he was asking her for advice about extra work. (Alex's various social media profiles list him as an aspiring nail-art entrepreneur, clothing designer, and student at UCLA.) He quickly got nasty with Retta, hurling racist and sexist abuse at her and attempting to mock her size. True to classy form, Retta responded by merely retweeting his barrage of negative tweets without comment. However, she did issue a thoughtful response to one critic who complained when she said she "pulled a white move" and got Alex ejected from his seat.
