Talking candidly with Hot 97 radio personality Angie Martinez, Blige said that she â€˜didnâ€™t realize she was making a mistake and thought the [Burger King] commercial would be a great opportunity to expand her brand.â€™ She admits that while she was heartbroken and frustrated by the outcome, she also â€˜understood the backlash.â€™

Blige makes it clear that doing the commercial wasnâ€™t the issue and she still believes it could have been a great look for her, but the problem was that the ad agency she worked with leaked an unfinished version that didnâ€™t include any of the creative elements the two parties had agreed upon.
