Chance The Rapper is learning the hard way just how tricky social media can be. Over the weekend, the “No Problem” rapper appeared to like an offensive Instagram comment aimed at three plus-size models.

A screengrab, captured by Twitter user @gabifresh, shows Chance liked a comment that read, “Just puked.” The comment was posted in response to a Fashion Nova advertisement on the World Star Hip Hop Instagram account featuring three topless plus-size models. After being called out by @gabifresh, the rapper eventually admitted to accidentally liking the comment and offered an apology.

In response to @gabifresh's tweet, “Ugh, Chance. Why??!!?? I loved you,” Chance wrote: “This isn’t fake, I accidentally liked an offensive comment on IG. I apologize to anybody hurt by it and it doesn’t reflect my character.” The original tweets have since been deleted but can still be seen on The Shade Room’s Instagram page.

Announced in 2016, Instagram rolled out the like feature in February, stating likes would allow users to “show support” and encourage “positivity throughout the community.” While it’s uncertain if Chance’s liking of the comment was really by accident, it isn’t difficult to like a comment as all it takes is taping the heart next to a comment.

This is not Chance The Rapper’s first time catching heat from fans. In March, the Grammy-winning artist took to Twitter after it was revealed he signed an exclusive deal with Apple Music to stream “Coloring Book.”

Known for his independent status, Chance tweeted, “I never felt the need to correct folks on my relationship with @apple but now that more people have tried to discredit my independence, I wanna clear things up.” He added, “@apple gave me half a mil and a commercial to post ‘Coloring Book’ exclusively on applemusic for 2 weeks.”

According to Chance, after the second week, he was able to put his album on SoundCloud -- where his other projects were offered. The rapper also wrote, “I needed the money and they’re all good people over there. I feel like if I didn’t clear it up people would keep trying to discredit all the work we did to make ‘Coloring Book’ what it became. I think artist can gain a lot from the streaming wars as long as they remain in control of their own product.”
