The Wiz Live! aired last evening on NBC and proved to be ratings gold with over 11 million viewers tuning in to the live show. However, similar to all things these days, people still found controversy where none existed.

Did anybody wonder why the same tweets are being cited in news reports and discussions? Just a thought…
