Chilli Fights Back!! Starts Online Petition Defending Her Son

Submitted by on November 3, 2013 – 12:48 pmNo Comment

Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas is fighting back against the online bullying suffered by her son, Tron Austin. Tron has been criticized for his appearance and fashion choices, and some have even questioned the sixteen-year-old’s sexuality.

Well known gossip blog Mediatakeout is at the forefront of the online ridicule that Tron receives, and Chilli isn’t taking it anymore. Chilli has launched an online petition against MTO, and it has garnered support from both the 42-year-old pop icon’s fans and celebrity friends. According to the petition:

“Most of you know me as a member of the group TLC, but everyone who knows me personally knows being a MOM is my number one priority. The health and safety of my son means more to me that any accomplishment or achievement I’ve received being an entertainer. Recently my son was targeted negatively by popular gossip site MediaTakeOut.com. I can’t describe the anger I felt at my son being ridiculed continuously by MediaTakeOut.com for no other reason than the fact that he’s my son. MediaTakeOut.com has posted numerous false stories about me, and other celebrity friends of mine and while I don’t like it, I realize that is a part of what comes with celebrity. However when my 16-year-old son is being attacked, that is when I take off the celebrity hat and become the protective Mother that I am, and I know many of you are.”

Reportedly, the owner of MTO, Fred Mwangaguhunga, has apologized and removed the post that prompted Chilli to speak out. The petion has generated over 1,500 ‘signatures’. Check it out on Change.org.
