Man who sent controversial tweet to Mayor Yarber speaks out

JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) –The man who sent a controversial tweet to Jackson Mayor Tony Yarber speaks out.

WJTV got the chance to talk with Twitter user Q-Macc. His tweet took a jab at the sexual harassment lawsuit pending against the city and Yarber, but it’s bringing attention to road conditions.

The tweet asked Yarber to fix some Jackson streets while he made a reference to the recent lawsuit. The mayor replied “LOL” to the tweet.

Q-Macc said he didn’t expect the mayor to respond.

“I really didn’t expect him to at all,” he said. “I was just running it by him and cracking a joke, but at the same time, I do want the roads to be fixed because I’m tired of getting my tires fixed and getting my front end aligned. I want him to do that.”

The roads mentioned in the tweet were Colonial Circle, Adkins Boulevard, and Northside Drive.
