Just what problem exactly did Usher have with T-Pain? Twitter seems to know, and they're rushing to the auto tune singer's defense because of it.

Why is Twitter apologizing for crapping on T-Pain? See the clip

Singer T-Pain recently admitted on an episode of Netflix’s This Is Pop, a docu-series that tells some incredible behind-the-scenes stories from some of our favorite music singers, that Usher had once told the singer outright that he had “f*$%#d up music”. T-Pain disclosed how the conversation took place on a plane on the way to the 2013 BET Awards, where Usher criticized the auto tune singer for his trademark sound. 

T-Pain, famous for songs such as “Blame It on the Alcohol” and “Buy You a Drink”, definitely changed music forever with his autotune style, but not necessarily for the worse. That being said, Usher, who has been around since the late 1990s, seemed to have a bone to pick with somebody who’s not as naturally gifted as him. Of course, one could argue T-Pain proved Usher wrong given his win on The Masked Singer. 

Regardless of T-Pain’s talent, the singer did disclose on the This Is Pop episode that that very moment with Usher on the airplane spiraled him into a four-year depression, forcing him to reflect on his own career and if he truly did ruin music. Lucky for T-Pain, he has the support of Twitter, who are reaching out in the masses to support the singer and his classic auto tune style. Care to read some of the best comments? Let’s delve in.
