T-Boz of TLC ignited a firestorm after she retorted quite nastily to one of the alleged “fans” who supposedly contributed to the duo’s Kickstarter fund that raised in excess of $400,000 towards the completion of their final album.
Originally, Chilli and T-Boz said they would have the album released by mid-October after raising about three times their original goal of $150,000 for their bon voyage CD.
But since that time has long passed and it is now rolling through the first week of November, fans had questions, and one of them bluntly inquired about a refund:
That needle-sharp sarcasm didn’t sit well with that fan, nor the rest of Twitter for that matter, and they went all in on the best-selling girl group of all time.
After enduring hours of push back from the fans, the group finally produced a statement to notify fans their album has been postponed until 2016 because the duo were bogged down by multiple projects in 2015:
“After seeing and greeting so many of you on our tour this summer, we took a short break and now we are in the studio recording our new album with Ron Fair, coming out in 2016. The music is coming out great and it’s only with your support of TLC on Kickstarter that this is possible. We thank you and promise that we will continue rolling out all the Kickstarter prizes except the album by mid-October. We are moving the album back to 2016, so that we will have more time to finish the record the TLC way. Thanks as always for your love and support and we can’t wait to deliver a new record and tour next year.”
