you a bitch
It’s called copula deletion, or zero copula. Many languages and dialects, including Ancient Greek and Russian, delete the copula (the verb to be) when the context is obvious.
So an utterance like “you a bitch” in AAVE is not an example of a misused you, but an example of a sentence that deletes the copular verb (are), which is a perfectly valid thing to do in that dialect, just as deleting an /r/ after a vowel is a perfectly valid thing to do in an upper-class British dialect.

NBC News: The FBI and Apple announced Monday that they are investigating an apparent hacking of iCloud accounts that lead to photos of Jennifer Lawrence and other female stars being posted online.
A spokesperson for Lawrence said the incident was “a flagrant violation of privacy” and that authorities were poised to prosecute anyone who posted the photos.

The goddamn FBI is investigating nudes being leaked but we couldn’t even get them to stomp out crooked cops tear gassing citizens for protesting.
I mean, I would expect the FBI to be on the hacking of a major company (Apple) but dayum they jumped on that quick!
The FBI’s priorities tho… SMDH
