Black Twitter reacts to Chloe Bailey, Gunna sighting at Hawks game after flirty comment

Bailey stopped by The "Tamron Hall Show" this week and spoke about "Have Mercy," going solo and more.

Lord, have mercy! Black Twitter had plenty to say after Chloe Bailey and Gunna were sighted together at an Atlanta Hawks game Thursday night.

The singer and rapper were spotted sitting courtside together, just a month after Gunna shared an Instagram photo of her performance at the MTV Video Music Awards writing, “its the (tongue emoji) for me.”

Even though a question mark remains whether or not these two are romantically linked, Black Twitter naturally had plenty to say about them attending the game together.

Some fans tweeted how protective they feel about Bailey, writing, “keep rappers away from her.”

One user wrote, “what’s this about chloe and gunna? keep the rappers away from ha..”

Another shared similar sentiments, posting a video of the meme of Florence Pugh crying in the horror movie Midsommar and writing, “Just saw Chloe Bailey at the Hawks game with Gunna.”

Bailey has had a busy year so far with the release of her debut solo single, “Have Mercy.” Her first official song without her sister Halle Bailey is a hit, going viral on TikTok.

Bailey recently stopped by The Tamron Hall Show and talked about her single and her career thus far.

“Everything went by like a complete blur, and even just watching that is making me emotional almost because every moment, every single second that I prepared for led me up to that moment on the stage,” Bailey shared when Hall played a clip of her VMA performance. “I had so much passion and energy into that moment. I was overwhelmed, emotionally I was scared, but I’m just so happy with how it turned out.”

She also opened up directly about exploring music without her ride-or-die sister, Halle, citing her casting as Ariel in The Little Mermaid as a catalyst.

“She’s my best friend, and so when she was [in London], when I create music it’s therapy for me. I just couldn’t stop…it kept piling up and I was like, ‘I gotta do something with it!'”
