Hot on the heels of news that Tina Knowles Lawson has filed for divorce from husband Richard Lawson, folks on Twitter are blaming the series “Black Love” … and Richard’s Twitter likes. But we’ll come back to that.

One user wrote: “That #BlackLove show has had Tia & Cory, Meg & the pastor, Niecy Nash before she switched teams AND Tina and Richard Lawson on and where are they now? Divorced. OWN is the damn problem.”
