Cousins! In response to viral video clip of Chance The Rapper having a blast at the 2023 Carnival festival in Jamaica over the weekend; Charlamagne Tha God is asking folks to simmer down as they continue to drag the Chicago native on claims of him disrespecting his wife!
A viral clip shows Chance at the Jamaica located annual festival dancing with a woman identified as Mela Millz. She shared the video on her social media feed as she wined up and down dancing on Chance while wearing a multi-colored glittery costume that consisted of her bare butt and breasts being cut out.
Chance is seen playfully slapping the model’s bottom a few times during their dance as his friends held him up.
The spread immediately as folks debated over if Chance took things a little to far.
In a recently aired segment on ‘The Breakfast Club ‘ morning radio show Charlamagne addressed the backlash Chance has been receiving following the now viral eight second video clip.
“For all we know, his wife could’ve just been off to the side minding her business because it is Carnival,” said Charlamagne.
“Have you never been to a strip club with your significant other? Charlamagne responded when asked how’d he personally feel if was the one twerking on another man for the world to see. “…that’s a totally different discussion.” Yeah…we bet!
Social media users poured in heavily with comments stating that Chance behaved inappropriately while also questioning the location of his wife Kristen Corely wondering if she was present at the festival with him or at home.
The couple have been married since 2018 and share two young daughters.
Fans have noticed that the two haven’t posted each other on social media in quite sometime.
On the upside fans also defended Chance in noting that his dance participation is considered normal behavior during Carnival and that it is notably a part of the Caribbean culture when celebrating.
“Feel like people overreacting much about Chance the Rapper wining on a woman during Jamaica Carnival though,” wrote a social media user.
“If you have never been to #Jamaica Carnival; you wouldn’t understand that Chance The Rapper wining on a girl is part of the Carnival culture. It’s literally what happens at Caribbean Carnivals. Do your research people. He wasn’t cheating on his wife,” reads another tweet.
Cousins, what are your thoughts on this? Did Chance take things too far?
