Singer Lyfe Jennings has faced backlash from his followers, including The Breakfast Club host, Charlamagne Tha God and Insecure actress, Amanda Seales.
In Lyfe's new song, he sings: "I'm gon' beat it like a slave, so you don't run away, cut the whips and chains, call me master."
Seales posted a video, criticizing the new single, blasting him for trivializing "the exploitation of black bodies against their will."
Charlamagne then reposed the video. "Some of y'all don't have any friends. If you did you wouldn't make mistakes like this record," he captioned the post.
Lyfe took exception to the critiques. Although he apologized for causing any offense, he sent a clear message to his haters:
"That's what's wrong with you Black folks right now, you always want to grasp on to the most negative part and put it, but you can't support the good," he said.
Is he right?
