In other Chance The Rapper news, the star yesterday hit out at Tumblr for the apparent hypocrisy in  banning porn but not ‘murder’.

The social media platform has a reputation as often being a hub for explicit and pornographic materials, but this week revealed a reversal on its policy.

However, Chance said that this wasn’t enough, claiming that he regularly sees violence and murder on the app every day.

“They banning nipples on tumblr but I’m seeing people get murdered graphically every day on this app,” he wrote on Twitter. “Like real snuff videos, non related to police shootings. Wtf yo.

“That shit honestly terrible for my mental and fucking up how I value human life.”
