Grandmas On Facebook Keep Tagging Grandmaster Flash By Mistake

Grandmaster Flash is a pioneer in the world of party DJing, helping to innovate and perfect several of the most popular techniques that shaped hip-hop as we know it. It’s no wonder that he was one of the first hip-hop artists to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. His name also contains the word “grandma.” You probably see where this is headed.

It’s well known that awesome calamities happen when the gnarled hands of the elderly wield Facebook. However, this new phenomena captured and recorded by the tumblr Love, Grampa and Grandmaster Flash, might be the most hilarious yet. Facebook’s auto-tagging is causing a large number of grandmas to accidentally tag their messages to loved ones as “Grandmaster Flash.”

Senior citizens aren’t the only ones confused by the auto-tagging. Grandmaster Flash himself had been puzzled by it for some time. Today, he has closure.
