A report from CNBC names Tennessee as one of the 5 worst states in the U.S. to live in, based on several contributing factors. While good air quality and attractions worked in the state's favor, the report cites high crime rate, a lower-than-average life expectancy, and lack of antidiscriminatory legislation protecting the LGBTQ community as marks against it.
Needless to say, there are some feelings on Twitter about the report:
