Chainsmokers Drew and TI beef explained
Celebrity feuds aren’t uncommon, but fans were shocked to hear there could be bad blood between The Chainsmokers’ Drew and TI
The alleged bad blood began with the two meeting at a club and ended with Drew being slapped in the face.
The Chainsmokers later addressed the altercation in a TikTok video, in which Drew explained that he kissed TI on the cheek, which resulted in him being punched.
“I gave him a kiss on the cheek and it was totally my fault,” Drew explained in the TikTok video titled When Meeting TI Goes Wrong.
“…First of all, TI is absolutely right here,” he added.
“I felt the vibes … and I kissed TI on the cheek, and he slapped me in the face for it … it’s totally fine,” he continued while laughing with other people in the car.
Even though Drew was punched by the star, he didn’t appear to be bruised in the video.
What did TI say about the altercation?
While fans might assume there is bad blood between the two, TI was quick to put the rumors to rest.
In one Instagram clip, the rapper even went as far as inviting The Chainsmokers over to his ExpediTIously podcast to sit and hack.
In the video, TI tries to hold back the laughter as he talks about the interaction and goes on to explain that all is well between the stars.
“First off, I love The Chainsmokers, okay, so let’s get that straight,” he said.
“I don’t have anything negative to say, you know, we just had to work through things, you know what I mean?
“We’ve gotten to a much better place… I have nothing but good things to say about them, good guys… I don’t want to go into too much detail, but I love The Chainsmokers, they make great music,” he added.
What did people say about the altercation?
After The Chainsmokers’ TikTok went viral, several people took to Twitter to offer their take on the events.
While some people brushed off the argument, there were some TI fans who weren’t happy with Drew’s actions.
One TI fan said, “Good for TI that person invaded his space, disregarded his boundaries, and unintentionally touched him.”
Another added, “Well don’t try to kiss people without consent if they invade people’s space that’s not cute at all.”
Other Twitter users pointed out that kissing people on the cheek is common in some cultures.
One user wrote: “In Latin American culture, kissing on the cheek is considered a greeting and a hug. But these men are so MANLY and think everything is gay. If it had been a woman, I’m sure he would have kissed back.”
Another added: “I hope he realizes that men in other countries greet each other with a kiss on the cheek, a handshake or a hug.”
