From the moment rumors began to swirl that R&B legend Toni Braxton is dating rapper and hip-hop mogul, Birdman, there's been a great deal of fascination, and dare one say, obsession over their alleged love affair.

On Centric TV.com, for example, the comments have been painfully cynical.
The general consensus is that Birdman is not good enough to date the likes of Toni Braxton.
That a 7-time Grammy winner and multi-platinum singer is a fool to date a diamond teeth-wearing, tattooed rapper.
Some have gone as far as to flat out say that Birdman is ugly, or as one reader called him: "trash"--though, of course, it was spelled wrong.
"I'm so disappointed in her, I thought she had class but I guess she likes thrash , and for him she's just another piece of ass," wrote a commenter identified as Michael Jamison.
Even more horrendous, many nasty critics brought up Braxton's bankruptcies, and suggested that she's only dating the rapper--who's worth an estimated 0 million--because she's desperate for his money.
One reader argued that because of rumors that the record executive is gay (based on a picture of him kissing his "son" Lil Wayne on the lips), Braxton is in jeopardy of contracting HIV--which is more foolish and reckless than I care to explain. I guess because he got money and she don't know how to manage hers she's willing to catch HIV or anything messing with him. smfh." Who the hell is anyone to make such egregious comments about a man's rumored sexuality (and furthermore his health status) and assumptions about a woman's choice to date?
"Toni Braxton is so desperate if she learned how to budget her money she wouldn't have to scrape the bottom of the barrel for a man with money," Mertice Watkins commented. And how miserable of a person one must be to spew such horrid and ignorant remarks.
I get that with being a public figure comes public opinion, and I honor the right of free speech, but it's toxic negativity like this that further breeds a world filled with hate and violence.
