Erykah Badu has got jokes.
And she let one of her most hilarious ones loose on a picture of her former beau and Chicago rap savant Common and the painful black eye he experienced at the hands of a basketball game—or, just a hand rather, as Fat Belly Bella hilariously suggested.
Common posted a selfie photo of his injury, showing what looks like a painfully bruised and swollen eye. His caption let everyone know how it happened as well.
“I got my eye blackened playing [basketball] today,” he wrote. “However, the fight must go on!”
Erykah must have taken the word “fight” to heart, jokingly suggesting there’s another cause behind the damage.
“Look like a [fist] print to me,” she joked.
From the comments on her response, it seems like everyone took her words as the hearty, innocent joke it was intended to be, unlike the response she received from recent comments on Adolf Hitler. She ended up clarifying her statements, which the internet didn’t take kindly to.
Thankfully, it seems she won’t have to do the same in this case.
See her side-eyeing comment to Common’s black eye in the post below.
