After the show aired, Chance took to Twitter to claim that “the quote was taken out of context,” adding that “the truth is any of us who ever ignored the R. Kelly stories, or ever believed he was being setup/attacked by the system (as black men often are) were doing so at the detriment of black women and girls.” He posted a clip of his chat with Lemieux, in which he expands his reasoning: “We’re programmed to really be hypersensitive to black male oppression. It’s just prevalent in all media, and when you see n***as getting beat up by the police, it’s men.”
