“Black Ink Crew Chicago” is suffering a massive drop in ratings.

It’s unclear what’s caused the decline. But some believe it’s the departure of former cast members.

And others wonder if it’s the N-word controversy, too.

Regardless, it’s clear VH1 won’t be giving up on the “Black Ink Crew” franchise.

A Compton version will premiere soon.

In the meantime, Charmaine from the Chicago show threw some shade recently.

And Kat joined in.

    I stopped watching because of the damage these three did in the beginning seasons. THEY are the ones that destroyed the show with their immature, classless and hoarish behaviors. We don’t need them in Chicago or on any show that makes reference to the city…. We’ve just had enough of that kind of misrepresentation. People everywhere think females from Chicago are exactly like them when the fact is a lot of us are ladies…

      I’m pretty sure the men weren’t any better. Just say it offends you to see women be free and s-xual and call it a day. Also, Chicago has bigger issues than what happens on Black Ink Crew Chicago.

    Ever since they brought Jr. Lilly , Bella on the show it went down hill. After Kat left because she & her boss slept together & till this day he hasn’t said he did i just lost interest in it. Why would they want jr. Lilly and DRUNK bella there all they do is get drunk and fight. Naw they need to change alot of stuff. Just like Black Ink.. Sky is so uneducated she brings that show down always fighting loud she’s so immature..

    Black Ink dont tattoo on the show. When they finally show you their work its horrible (Donna, Van, and the list goes on. If they could tattoo like the way they throw hands. I promise I’ll watch every episode withoit missing one.

      Facts, I never see a real tattoo done anymore.Not that am a fan of Lily just everyone always talking bad about her but at least she was a tattoo artist and not just along for the ride like Charmaine and her cousin.This is a tattoo show afterall.

        Lily being a tattoo artist doesn’t erase the fact that she causes 99% of the problems. Maybe that’s why “everyone always talking bad about her.”

    It was from the beginning people just got caught up in drama. All of them benefited from the show. Non of them are broke. Its time from ryan to get his life straightened back out. Something just bigger than reality show. Being put on blast to keep rating you got too move on from the negativity and get back being positive. All of them doing what they love. So it’s really no sense of people in their feeling unless you like drama.

    The original crew may be the best the show had but it’s time to grow up and save the business. It’s not about ratings for Ryan its about loosing money and saving the shop, who could be mad at that?
