All hail Chance The Rapper. The 24-year-old took to Twitter over the weekend to pledge his allegiance to the comedian amidst her ask for a Netflix boycott.

The Chicago MC referred to the comedy special, Mo’Nique: I Coulda Been Your Cellmate, where she performed at The Ohio Reformatory for Women in 2007.

It strikes me as odd (actually, no it doesn’t) that there have been no black men publicly stand up in support of Mo, despite her approach (Jada Pinkett Smith and even Wendy Williams spoke out in support early on in the call for the boycott). I guess the #TimesUp movement only applies if you’re likable.
