On the Black Ink Crew: Chicago episode “Reese, Scheduled,” while Neek returns from Africa, Lily is depressed on the sofa at Loyal Ink. She’s upset about the ICE deportations and the family separation crisis at the U.S./Mexico border. It has her thinking and worrying about her family. When Don rouses Lily to sit up, Lily tells him and Cobra what’s really on her mind.
Lily says cartels in Mexico are killing innocent people. “That’s how my f—king father died. Because he got kidnapped and he got killed.” Lily says she has two baby sisters still in Mexico who she “fears for.” As Lily says, “As long as they’re in Mexico, they’re never safe.” When Lily went to Mexico last year she said her aunt wouldn’t let her see her sisters “all of a sudden.” Don suggest doing a charity event, a donation tat day. Cobra’s on board too. Black Ink Crew: Chicago airs Wednesdays at 8pm on VH1.
