While everyone has an opinion regarding Donald Trump, it seems that even more people have an opinion about Chrisette Michele. While I’m not going to front as if I’m not a fan, because I am. Chrisette’s music was the soundtrack of my wedding, and “Epiphany” has found itself in heavy rotation on my iPhone. Regardless of all of those facts, I believe in going to the horse’s mouth and not the horse’s ass.
Many people took to Black Twitter and Instagram to roast Chrisette, including Spike Lee, who took to Instagram to
Promote his Netflix Show insert himself into a conversation about Chrisette’s decision to perform at the Trump inauguration festivities.
So because Spike was “Thinking”about adding Chrisette’s song “Black Girl Magic” to his show’s soundtrack, he felt that his feelings would be best expressed via social media. Honestly, I’d expect that behavior from my teenage daughter, not from a 59 year old man. I don’t think it’s a good look.
On a personal note, I happened to be surfing the internet and I came across this picture from 2013 of Spike Lee and some very interesting people:
In #youtriedit news Chrisette Michele's fiancé @biggs4k posts a pic of #SpikeLee with that guy and his wife to call Spike a hypocrite. Here is the original #GettyImages caption of the pic from 2013: "Melania Trump, businessman/TV personality Donald Trump, and filmmaker Spike Lee attend The New York Observer 25th Anniversary Party at Four Seasons Restaurant on March 14, 2013 in New York City." #chrisettemichele
Spike Lee decided that he was going to come after me for pointing out his hypocrisy.
So because he decided to jump in my mentions, I decided to point out a few facts that my brother chose to ignore:
While folks decided to talk about how 2013 was before The Donald decided to run for POTUS, I decided to point out that Trump started the birther movement for attention back in 2011, still making Spike a hypocrite.
There’s a way to disagree without being disagreeable, and Spike decided to do the very thing that Trump does: Get on the internet and complain and drop attacks instead of having adult conversations.
