The disgraced former NAACP Spokane chapter president Rachel Dolezal set off on her apologia tour Tuesday morning. The first stop was NBC's Today Show, where she told co-host Matt Lauer that she's identified as black for a very long time. “I was drawing self-portraits with the brown crayon instead of the peach crayon,” she said.

Twitter users were not having any of it and quickly assembled Tuesday morning to give Dolezal a "good riddance" with the hashtag #ByeRachel, the new Bye Felicia, some are calling it.
