Chad Johnson responded to a tweet asking him how he stays so positive by saying he was happy for a second chance, after he lost his temper once in his life for three seconds. He was referring to the domestic violence incident with then fiancee Evelyn Lozada that put her in the hospital.
What's the secret? How do you stay so positive? Was it therapy? Not being funny...really asking for myself

I lost my temper for once in life for 3 seconds & it cost me a lifetimes worth of work, I got it all back plus some after getting a 2nd chance & NOTHING will ever get me out of that happy space again... https://t.co/svU3F0FeYP

The "Basketball Wives" star wasn't a fan of Johnson's response and spoke out, both in an Instagram video and in her IG Story (see the gallery below). She called him a liar and questioned whether or not he was suffering from memory loss for saying it only happened once.

I’m sorry to my kids, my family & friends, my fellow cast-members, their kids & family, the viewers & anyone else I hurt or affected with my actions. I hope & pray my message is received and that this video makes sense. 🙏🏽 I’m sorry for being so upset 💔 but this is HEAVY on my heart. #ILoveAllOfYou
Chad has no doubt about it made the most of his second chance. Did he deserve one? That might be up for debate, but what isn't up for debate is that he shouldn't minimize domestic violence. And his tweet did do that.
Whether it was three seconds or three minutes, it doesn't matter. The result was the same. He split a woman's head open and put her in the hospital. You can't minimize that.
