Russell Simmons wants fans to watch what they eat. Recently, the former Def Jam Recordings founder said that KFC and Popeyes are “poisoning our people.”
To put it in context, on Saturday (May 21), Russell Simmons slid in the comment section of Hollywood Unlocked’s blog post about Kodak Black liking KFC over Popeyes’ fried chicken. The South Florida rapper tweeted his love for KFC on his Twitter account on Friday (May 20).
“I Like KFC Over Popeyes,” Yak wrote along with a person shrugging emoji. Someone operating KFC’s Twitter account saw Kodak’s tweet and replied, “So do we Yak." Kodak responded, "I'm Dead," along with a skull emoji and a cry-laughing emoji.
