TLC’s Chilli Receives Huge Backlash After Saying ‘All Lives Matter’

In a recent interview with Channel 4 News, TLC were asked about their involvement and opinions on the Black Lives Matter movement. Here’s how one half of the group, Chilli, responded:

“I personally didn’t go into any marches, or anything like that, but for me, all lives matter, you know what I mean? 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. It’s just not right.”

Asked about Trump, TLC’s T-Boz said: “I don’t care about Donald Trump. So, I mean, God is my President. I just feel sorry for people it affects, but I don’t care about him.”

The fan backlash to this interview has not been warm, to put it lightly:

TLC have a final comeback album due out June 30, though after these probelmatic comments, we wonder if it will be able to maintain the hype it’s achieved so far. Ironically, they’ve just released a single titled “Haters.” Listen:
