During a recent interview, Chilli of TLC explained why she feels that all lives matter. She said,
“For me, All Lives Matter. With the police brutality against these young black boys and stuff like that. All of that kind of stuff is wrong. Even if it was a Caucasian teen kid that this was happening to, it’s just not right.”
After receiving much criticism, Chilli clarified her statement via The Shade Room and said,
“Of course Black Lives Matter and the killing of young black boys is heartbreaking to all of us. 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.”
Glad she came to her senses.
