Well, it’s not going to happen on Tevin Campbell‘s watch.

The “Can We Talk” singer took to Twitter on Friday to get a few things off of his chest in regards to his legendary “auntie.”

Gladys Knight literally had to walk thru the back doors. She lived thru the “colored” and “whites” only bullsh-t. She marched with the civil rights leaders. She does not owe you manure. And she gives 0 f&cks about y’all cancelling. STFU, please. Carry on.

After cooling off and getting dragged on social media, Tevin came back and apologized for being “immature” in his original post.
