Destiny’s Child singer Michelle Williams and her partner Chad Johnson are making headlines after Chad threw her mental illness in her face during a heated conversation about race.

The clip going viral is from the pair's new reality show on OWN called Chad Loves Michelle.

Williams has openly struggled with depression and pushed her wedding day back so that she could be admitted to a mental health facility to be treated for the condition.

In a promotional clip for the upcoming episode, the couple discussed a conversation about race, which made Chad very uncomfortable. Typically, he doesn't appreciate hearing about Michelle's struggles as a woman of color and hit her with a very low remark.

"I said something to him on the lines of ‘Well, Chad, because you are not Black you would not understand why I communicate the way I do. Maybe because you didn’t grow up around a lot of Black people.’ So that was very, very offensive to Chad […] And this is not to justify it, but yesterday when we had the disagreement, he said ‘Did you take your meds today?" Michelle explained to their therapist.

White people do not have the option to choose to be color blind, especially if they are in a relationship which could potentially bring about children of color.

Now Black Twitter is gunning for Pastor Chad!
