Newton County, GA – A neighborhood in Newton County, Georgia was tagged with alleged gang graffiti earlier this week. According to WSB-TV Atlanta, at least three homes and a car were hit with black spray paint. Neighbor Mary Smith was shocked.
“I couldn’t believe it when I saw it ‘cause we don’t have that in this neighborhood,” Smith said. “It’s quiet out here.”
But, there was another issue. The word “Crips” was written in messy cursive, calling its authenticity into question.
Naturally, Twitter erupted with jokes and the subject became a trending topic on the social media platform.
Check out some of the best reactions below.
