During an interview with Channel 4 UK News, T-Boz and Chilli were asked about the Black Lives Matter movement, to which Chili said she believes that “all lives matter.”
“I personally didn’t go into any marches, or anything like that, but for me, all lives matter, you know what I mean?” the singer explained to the host. “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.”
Needless to say, many TLC fans were not happy with the tone deaf comments, and promptly questioned how a group that was so socially-conscious and forward leaning in the 90s could seem so oblivious to the current racial climate. Chilli has not yet responded to the backlash.

@Channel4News She really said " i feel sorry for people it affects" like she's not an American living in America.
