R&B singer Mary J. Blige never got over the public response to her racist "Crispy Chicken" Burger King commercial in 2012.
The commercial set in motion a backlash that ultimately derailed her career and her marriage.
"It hurt my feelings and crushed me for two days," Blige told Hot 97's Angie Martinez.
Apparently Blige didn't learn a thing from her spectacular lack of judgment in 2012.
A day after the first presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, Blige serenaded the 69-year-old Democratic candidate with a song so wretched and horrible in scale and scope that Clinton could only sit and stare.
Blige sang a song reminiscent of "Mammy's Angel Chile," where she implored her imaginary son to comply and be polite to officers who stop him -- lest he be killed by the officer who mistook his wallet for a gun or a knife.
If an officer stops you
Always be polite
And never ever run away
Promise mama you'll keep your hands in sight
Is it a gun? is it a knife? is a wallet?
This is your life
It ain't no secret, it ain't no secret
No secret, my friend
You can get killed just for living in...
Your American skin
Black Twitter erupted and dragged poor Mary unmercifully. What was she thinking? Did she forget that Clinton is the same politician who nagged her husband, former President Bill Clinton into writing the '3 strikes bill' that sent thousands of black men away to prison in the 1990s?
“Did you see that Mary j blige video? Chile…," wrote Twitter user @BobbySnarks. "Who is her management! A Blonde bobb, librarian glasses, and illiteracy lyrics. She's a human kaleidoscope!"
