Chili Explains “All Lives Matter” Comment
Chilli from TLC knows you’re BIG mad that she said “All Lives Matter” in a recent interview and she’s issuing a response. As previously reported she and T-Boz were doing press in the U.K. when they were asked about the Black Lives Matter movement.
And while T-Boz didn’t get a chance to respond to the question, an eager Chilli had a (headassy) answer on deck.
“I personally didn’t go to any marches, or anything like that, but for me, all lives matter, you know what I mean?” she said. “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’s since chatted with #TheShadeRoom to explain herself. According to Chilli, she had an “inclusive” response and she would never diminish the black lives matter movement because of her black son.
“Of course Black Lives Matter and the killing of young black boys is heartbreaking to all of us,” said Chilli. “Everyone knows I am a black mother of a black son so there is no way I could watch what’s happening and not be affected.
That video was from an interview in London asking me about issues happening in the U.S. My response was inclusive of everyone, but not meant to undervalue the Black Lives Matter movement or to suggest police brutality against blacks is acceptable.”
Surely you didn’t think Chilli was a sellout, right???
