Former 3LW singer Kiely Williams addressed a long-rumored incident involving former group member Naturi Naughton — and chicken.
It began Monday after fans criticized Naughton’s decision to “stand with” Phylicia Rashad, who received backlash for supporting Bill Cosby’s release from prison last week.
“Why are Black People so quick to #Cancel each other! We are ALLOWED to have different opinions and it doesn’t make you ANTI-anything!” Naughton wrote on her Instagram story, according to The Shade Room. “@phyliciarashad, I stand with you! #TheCosbyShowChangedLives.”
As the post spread to Twitter, fans began tagging Williams, who responded with, “OMFG. Somebody bring me a two-piece. She talking crazy again.”
Naughton then tweeted, “Finally, she tells the TRUTH! Haha…worrying about me, you done told on yourself! #GrabMeABiscuit while you’re at it, boo! #Lying4 years.”
The Shade Room also shared a clip from a 2019 episode of TV ONE’s UNCENSORED series, where Naughton detailed what happened.
“We had this huge fight which I’m sure many of my fans that remember cause I was on [BET’s] 106 & Park,” Naughton says in the clip. “People started talking about ‘Oh, there’s a two-piece chicken. She threw chicken in her face. It wasn’t just about the chicken, but that did really happen.
“For the record, a lot of people ask me, “Did yall really have a fight at KFC?’ she continued. “Yes, we did.”
Williams returned later to suggest she was making a joke, though fans took it as an admission.
“How you mad when I make the same joke ya’ll been making about me for years?!? I didn’t make it a joke; you did,” Williams tweeted. “Learn to laugh at yourself, people. I promise it makes life better. Also, complicity in rape culture is unacceptable and needs to be called out. #BillCosbyIsARapist.”
