For those not living under a rock, Robin Roberts' battle with a rare blood disorder called MDS has been a public and courageous one. So when Roberts made her return to red carpet duty for tonight's Oscars, most people were incredibly supportive — and many more, still, were proud of her choice to wear her hair au natural.
Unfortunately, there are still rocks out there under which a special brand of buffoon live. And, man, do they love social media! Taking their cluelessness on parade, these superficial ignoramouses seemed to miss the memo on ABC's Oscar anchor. Feel like getting angry? Read on to see just how offensive and awful the Internet can be. I'm sorry.
