Earl Sweatshirt: “Sometimes Twitter Makes Me Want To Fuckin’ Kill Myself”

Written by Mike Hohnen on August 20, 2013

During an interview with international tastemakers Pitckfork, hip hop prodigy and Odd Future affiliate Earl Sweatshirt has let lose about his thoughts regarding the micro-blogging service Twitter.

Using way more than 140 characters, the rapper explains just how much he hates the medium. Fans of Earl will know his Twitter account has been the subject of hot discussion over the years with the man vanishing off the face of the earth for some time.

“It’s a terrible place; Twitter’s an awful place. Sometimes Twitter makes me want to fuckin’ kill myself, I hate Twitter sometimes. ‘Cause you didn’t used to be able to see how retarded people you thought were cool are. I’m sure someone said that about me, too. Twitter’s an awful place.”

Earl has had a bit of a love hate relationship with his account, using it to share vital details about his major label debut Doris, but also telling folks he’s leaving it forever.

You can watch the full interview with the man himself below where he confesses his love for not just breakfast, but “Breakfast ass breakfast.”

In other Earl news, Doris is officially available now.
