Outkast rapper Big Boi caught the wrath of Twitter early Sunday after tweeting out a controversial meme about motherhood. The meme shows Florida Evans, the fictional character played by Esther Rolle in the 70s TV show Good Times, juxtaposed against a scantily clad woman. Under Evans it says “Mothers in the 70s,” while under the second woman it says “Mothers now.” Underneath, it reads “And we act like we don’t know what’s wrong with these kids.”

The post offended many on Twitter, and they wasted no time calling Big Boi out for it.

It's just cute to me how big Boi thinks moms back in the day weren't busting it open. How you think you got here? By faith?

Ironic that Big Boi posted this. Cuz he was married and had a stripper pole in his basement.. pic.twitter.com/pjvM2hyzKc

Big Boi had a child with another woman during his marriage which makes his meme even more laughable

What do you think? Did Big Boi go to far, or are people making a joke bigger than it is?
