Chuck D Gives His Thoughts On Flavor Flav's Chicken Franchise

Chuck D shows his support for Flav's Fried Chicken via Twitter, says the press focuses too much on the negative.

Days after the opening of famed hypeman Flavor Flav’s new restaurant franchise, Flav’s Fried Chicken, fellow Public Enemy member Chuck D has given his opinion on the opening of the restaurant.

Chuck D expressed his support for Flav’s business venture and explained that the press rather focus on the negative rather than the positive.

"He does groundbreaking sht in South Africa etc 71 tour 76 countries and press rather pay attention to asking me about Flavs chicken WTF?" Chuck D explained in a Tweet. "I give FLAV credit I rather him sell something most people EAT why does Popeye Bojangles and The Colonel get automatic blackfolk?"

Flavor Flav announced that he would be opening a fried chicken franchise back in November of last year. He also revealed that he would be releasing a line of flavored liquors.

“I want you all to keep on the lookout – it should be on the shelves by January – I'm launching a thing called 'Le Flav Spirits’…I'm also launching FFC – ya'll heard of KFC right? – well this is FFC, Flav's Fried Chicken,” said Flav. “The Colonel better watch his back, G! The Colonel might end up in my fryer.”

Flav’s Fried Chicken opened in Clinton, Iowa on Monday, January 24.

    Like Chuck D said, IT'S FUCKING CHICKEN! If you black and scared to let people know you eat chicken OR watermelon you're the one that's being racist and stupid at the same time. Worried about fucking food, really?

  • Say what, Chuck?!

    Hypocrite. Now since it's a friend "perpetuating a stereotype" you ain't got nothing to say?! Get outta here, man. This has "jigaboo fried chicken" written all over it. What the fuck is a FFC, anyway?! Fake KFC?!! Fuckin' logo looks like a thirteen year old drew that shit. For god's sake if you going into business. At least make an attempt to make it LOOK like your serious about it. The visionaries for this shit are need to take off the blinders. Anyway, good luck Flav.

    • Say what, Chuck?!

      Oh wait...since I don't have my own business that means I can't have an opinion?! GTFOH with that nonsense. And I'm not acting like I have a successful business. I'm acting like a PE fan who knows that Chuck D's "breaking steretype" inner workings are probably filled with disdain about Flav's decision to be break into the "fried chicken market" (could he chose something else?) You ever see "Burn Hollywood Burn" the video? Yeah that's what I think about Chuck D's idea about black stereotypes and Flav looks like he just painted himself as one. But since Flav's his man everythings cool now?! Say what?! Whatever, man. But what do I know? I mean, I don't own a business or anything.

      @ Say what, Chuck?! Where's your business at? How come your time is taken up by posting comments on HHDX? Real business folks don't usually have time for that...while you acting as if you got a real successful business...which I highly doubt!!!!

  • Atl2Trill
