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.

That is so not true.
Many celebs when they feel they have made it and have some perks will use them.
They have all used this tactic at some point if they feel the need to use it.
As long as they don't abuse it, it's okay.
I think she should have told him she didn't want to talk, or if she did he didn't get the hint.
As a seat filler he was working and that is a rule when you are hired. Don't talk to or annoy the guests!
And how did you come to the conclusion that the guy annoying her was black?
White people in Hollywood have no problem putting security on a black person, especially if that black person is bothering them. They don't have to take that.
As long as it's the truth and not a lie, they should have nothing to be afraid of.

She wasn't being racist, and din't use a racial slur.
Just like people say all black people love fried chicken and Watermelon.
From a stereotypical standpoint it has been said white people will tell on you if they think you are doing something they don't agree with.
That is all she was saying.
Stereotypically she had him removed because he was annoying her, which is what a white person would have done.
Because from a stereotypical point of doing what a black person would have done was probably told him to STFU! and caused a scene before having him removed.

He is working and isn't supposed to talk to the other guests.
They don't want the guest annoyed.
Sit your butt in the seat and get paid.
How hard is that?

I didn't see a racial slur. She's suggesting it's what a white person would do in the same situation. Not saying that making it "racial" was ok, just pointing out she didn't use a slur. Calm down, you don't want an aneurysm.
