Twitter Is Dragging TLC's Chilli For Saying "All Lives Matter"


By Sharon Lynn Pruitt

TLC is in the middle of making their big comeback, but will a recent interview cost them their fans?

During an interview with UK's Channel 4 News earlier this week, Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas and Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins of TLC were asked their opinion on the Black Lives Matter and whether or not they participated in any of the marches.

"I personally didn't go into any marches, or anything like that, but for me, all lives matter, you know what I mean?" Chilli responded. "Because there is a time when different groups are targeted for different things, you know what I'm saying? So, I just think that, just the whole — what happened, police brutality, against these young black boys, all of that kind of stuff is wrong, even if it was a Caucasian teen kid that this was happening to or whatever."

She did go on to say that it isn't right for anyone with authority to misuse that power, and suggested, as a solution, more thorough background checks. The interviewer then went on to ask how it feels to be a black woman living in a country where Donald Trump is president.

"I don't care about Donald Trump, so, I mean, God is my president," T-Boz replied. "I just feel sorry for the people it affects, but I don't care about him."

Twitter wasted no time in dragging Chilli and T-Boz for their political comments. Take a look below.
