#WomenAreTrash Trending on Twitter and Some People are Celebrating

By

Usually we wake up and open Twitter and see a variety of hashtags have started trending overnight. Usually it's some pop culture reference, like an artist dropping a new album or a highly anticipated movie came out. Sometimes they're a little more political, especially in today's day and age. Other times the hashtag is more vicious, more controversial. So if you're wondering why you woke up and saw #WomenAreTrash trending today, here's the heartbreaking reason behind the hashtag. 

The meaning behind the hashtag claiming women are trash was painful from the start.

Although other Twitter users have tacked onto the trend and listed other ways why they think women are trash, the hashtag was started from one incident. A tweet claiming that a woman named Tshego drugged her grandmother in order to go out to party. The tweet also included a video of a spoonful of white powder being dropped into what looks like tea.
