Tiny Harris does not play about her grandchild. Nigerian-American rapper CHIKA had some backlash when she complained about the crying of a set of baby twins whose mother purchased first-class tickets on a flight recently.
“The lady next to me who thought it would be a good idea to buy yourself and your twin infants first class seats on a red-eye flight, who just woke me up by bringing your screaming bastard to OUR seats to soothe her, I just bought $34 WiFi at 4 am to call you a stupid bitch,” she began, per HipHopDX. “p.s., I hate you, and I hope you get a paper cut between each finger tomorrow, you senseless wench.”
CHIKA didn’t stop there. In several other since-deleted tweets, she called the mother a “h–” and to “choke.”
Come to find out, one of the “infants” CHIKA was referring to was Zoonique Pullins’ (Tiny Harris’ daughter and T.I.‘s stepdaughter) two-year-old daughter Hunter Zoelle James.
Zoonique responded to CHIKA in a tweet on Friday (June 2). “Wait I’m in tearssss not chika boo was mad my child was cutting up in first class [crying face emojis] you should of just sat there and been mad babe..she sky priority af,” she wrote.
Tiny later stepped in with a heated response. “Yeah she talking about my MF’n grandbaby!” she wrote on Instagram. “Talking like she wasn’t supposed to be in first class or something! TF!!!!”
She quote-tweeted her daughter, adding, “HEAVY ON THE AF!!!!!!”
Tiny’s niece Tamara Zackery, who goes by “beautifulrose_” on Instagram and called Zonnique her “niece,” said that the babies only cried for “three minutes” and that they were well-behaved for the rest of the flight. The other child belonged to Zachery, and she explained why the girls were in first class on an Instagram page on Saturday (June 3).
“I truly thought an overnight flight would be the best being the girls would sleep straight through it after wearing them out, and honestly it worked until my 2yr old niece woke up startled in pure darkness, forgetting where she was,” she explained in her message on IG. “So i comforted her kisses her, and rocked her back to sleep. It may have looked like a bit of a struggle cause I’m also 5 months pregnant. Bystanders never give concern to the mom who is actually having to deal with the crying baby while worrying about they grown a– too.”
After deleting her tweets, CHIKA explained her remarks and apologized to anyone who was offended, per XXL.
“Posting because [I] think it’s important & because [I] understand that people who actually do want to support me were also offended by my inflammatory thread yesterday,” she wrote. “[I’m] sorry cuz it was triggering/infuriating to many. [I] just don’t like being seen as someone [I’m] not.”
CHIKA’s profile on Twitter is now private.
