Chance The Rapper catches heat from an Instagram comment
When you donate $1 million to a public school system and consistently use your platform to speak out against systemic injustices, it pretty much goes without saying that you’re one of the good guys. So fans were a bit disappointed when Chance The Rapper liked an offensive Instagram comment the other day.
The “No Problem” star hit headlines over the weekend after he ‘liked’ a comment posted under an Instagram photo featuring three topless ladies squeezing their curves into skinny jeans, using their hands to preserve their modesty.
“Just puked,” read the remark.
Rather than stay mum and face the impending storm with a “wait and see” approach, Chance took to his Twitter account to fess up to the mistake and clear up any misconceptions.
“This isn’t fake, I accidentally liked an offensive comment on IG. I apologize to anybody hurt by it and it doesn’t reflect my character,” he explained.
For the most part, people seemed to trust his apology, and the tweet’s since been retweeted over 27,000 times and earning a total of 104,000 likes.
