Chance the Rapper wasted no time silencing a fan on Tuesday (Dec. 5) after a new story by CBS Los Angeles headlined: “In Wake of Weinstein, Men Wonder If Hugging Women Still OK.” surfaced online.

The story -- which highlights the recent surge in sexual allegations pervading Hollywood -- questions if men should reconsider hugging women anymore in the workplace. In response to the article, the "Blessings" lyricist succinctly tweeted, "Gross. Don't," denouncing the concept of unwanted hugs. 

After being challenged by a Twitter user named Joey on the weighty topic, Chance returned the favor with a response of his own tweeting: "Stop trying to make people hug you Joey. No one wants your hugs or hyperbolic racist comparisons or unbuttoned top button. Keep it all to yourself, Joey."

Besides roasting users on Twitter, Chance's altruism has been on display this week after he gifted Chicago high school students unreleased pairs of Jordan sneakers as early Christmas presents. “Thanks to @Korporate00 for speaking and thanks to Jordan for bringing 300 pairs of unreleased 11s for the young creatives. Until next year… POWER TO THE PEOPLE,” he wrote on Twitter. 

The proverbial cherry on top came on Wednesday (Dec. 6) when Google donated $1 million grant to Chance's nonprofit organization SocialWorks for Chicago Public Schools. Check out his tweets below.
