Jeez, you'd think that the American people would use their powers of 21st century media for causes more noble than picking on poor defenseless rap stars. But no—after yesterday's Drake bullying session, now the bluebird has turned its attention to Pittsburgh rapper Mac Miller, with the trending hashtag "#macmillerproblems." The idea, as we understand it, is to make fun of some of the trivial issues that constitute "problems" in the world of Mac Miller song lyrics, seeing as how his life as a successful rapper from a good Jewish upbringing has few problems of any actual gravity. Thus, a couple of the sarcastic examples:

@uprooted_photos I opened the fridge to make some waffles, but there's no syrup left in that bottle. #macmillerproblems

@iSPiTswagg I couldn't decide if i wanted to wear Supreme or Obey today #macmillerproblems

@KingOfHartz21 we got the kool aid but no frozen pizza #macmillerproblems

@kbro244 Waking up and not being able to find your snap-back. #macmillerproblems

@mikeypiffsalot Can only afford converse..... Nikes are too expensive #macmillerproblems

We can do better than this, Twitter. Why not try to build, to inspire, rather than to undercut, to mock? Shame on all of you, particularly for picking on downtrodden Mac Miller just four days after his beloved Pittsburgh Steelers got absolutely throttled in their first-week matchup with the division rival Baltimore Ravens. Have a heart, guys.
