But it was like we was joking around,” she said during her confessional. “People were commenting about domestic violence, saying, ‘Oh why would you say that?’ What I did was I got on to live like I don’t give an f—. Not meaning I don’t give an f— about domestic violence but I don’t give an f— about what y’all talking bout. This is something else with myself I need to check. Like, stop reacting.”
