Comedian Lil Duval and Charlamagne Tha God have all of Black Twitter in stitches proclaiming June 12 as the official, national “Black Men Don’t Cheat” day. The paid have anointed the occasion with a #BlackMenDontCheat hashtag along with the release of a new catchy tune called (you guessed it) Black Men Don’t Cheat.
“All my faithful, monogamous, Black men get in formation. This is not a drill. Service starts promptly at 6AM,” declared Charlamagne in a tweet late yesterday evening.
The hip hop track is an anthem for like minded, Black men to congregate together offering them a modern gospel feel and includes such great lines as “If we ain’t at work, we probably at church.” The chorus hook proclaims “Black men don’t cheat!” in a spirited baritone.
Take a listen for yourself and check out some of the funniest, if not ridiculous, reactions from this newly created “holiday.”

Needless to say, Black Twitter had a lot to say about this #BlackMenDontCheat idea. Some wholeheartedly agreed with the sentiment and even provided “facts” to back it up.

Others were a tad less impressed with the anthem and considered the hashtag a bold faced lie.
