Over the course of their illustrious career, TLC have been no stranger to controversy.
Last week saw the group’s surviving members T-Boz and Chilli engulfed in exactly that after an interview with an Australian news outlet seemingly saw them “take aim” at Rihanna.
In the segment that aired, the Grammy winning duo supposedly slam the Bajan star for her barely-there outfits.
Naturally, the model-with-a-mic charged back, which subsequently encouraged her fans to do the same.
The result? An onslaught of online abuse aimed at TLC by RiRi’s Navy.
Clearly exhausted by the foolery, T-Boz and Chilli sat down with Yahoo Down Under to clarify their comments – which they insist were cleverly edited and had nothing to with Rihanna at all.
The situation in their words after the jump…
Kudos to the ladies for classily keeping it real. Hopefully it serves as a lesson to a certain fanbase to not jump the gun.
