He faced criticism for his participation in a National Rifle Association interview released days before "March for Our Lives."
Reid replied to the rapper, saying that “H&M” referred to hair and makeup, not the retailer. She also snuck in a reference to the sunken place from Jordan Peele’s film “Get Out.”

“‘H&M’ stands for ‘hair and makeup,’ Mike. The two women beside me in this pic did my hair (H) and makeup (M) for a shoot. The blouse I’m wearing is by @norisolferrari and I doubt you can buy it at the retail chain you’re thinking of. (I got it from the designer via a stylist.) And here I was thinking you were an intellectual, and not just the guy who hangs out in the sunken place talking guns with the NRA’s ‘official black guy’ who literally changed his last name to ‘black.’”
Killer Mike apologized for the misunderstanding on Twitter and said he spoke to the producer of Reid's MSNBC show about appearing there to discuss gun reform.
"My apologies for my misunderstanding @JoyAnnReid and I hope we get that Black Gun owner Minus the NRA interview," he tweeted.
