Tina Queen gained popularity on TikTok after posting videos dancing with her co-worker Mitch who many call her “work bae.” Recently, she and her co-worker have been the topic of many Black Twitter conversations because he posted a photo that many were not happy about.
After outrage from Tina’s fanbase, Mitch deleted the post. It showed a black cat and a white dog and a caption that compared the animals to the current political climate. Mitch wondered why everyone couldn’t get along like cats and dogs.
However, every viral tweet has a back story. FM Hip Hop sat down with Tina to discover what happened between the two and where Tina goes from here.
In the interview above, she stated that she agreed the post he made was tone-deaf however, she did not think he was a racist. She discussed the situation with him and encouraged him to delete the photo. The situation between the two coworkers did not escalate until he refused to delete the photo.
Tina said, “his white privilege was showing.”
She took Twitter to share her frustration.
And y’all go head and cancel Mitch.

She went on to explain after she tweeted to cancel him, Mitch apologized but, he didn’t “appreciate people telling him how to use his platform.”
While this angered Tina she realized she couldn’t change his mind and left their friendship. While she is no longer will associate with Mitch she explains he is not a racist and does not think it’s okay to bully him.
Amidst the situation, old tweets have been brought up calling Tina anti-Black men. She addressed that idea saying she often “trolls” and was not serious.
However, she apologized for stating she “hates all Black men” however, reiterates that was never true.
