As “Black Ink Crew” New York comes to an end, part two of “Black Ink Crew: Chicago” season 5 returns for a whirlwind of drama, and fans seemed to be anticipating every bit of it.
Before the midseason finale, Walker became the topic of conversation on social media after coming to blows with her former co-worker Lily Barrios. She was extremely vocal about Barrios’ use of the n-word which eventually led to the tattoo artist quitting the shop.
Walker also spent the beginning of the season trying to get back in her boss Ryan Henry‘s good graces after being on the outs with him during season 4. She and a few others were seemingly the reason he decided to abandon his shop and move to another location last season following his cheating scandal with Katrina “Kat” Jackson.
Fast-forward to the show’s upcoming return on June 4, and it seems Walker’s time at 9MAG may be up. The trailer showed the television personality in tears as she told the crew “a lot has changed.” It’s unclear why she was crying, but whatever the case was, Walker apparently was over it. Another clip also showed her walking out of the tattoo shop, saying, “I can’t do this anymore.”
The scene drummed up a mass of reactions from “Black Ink Crew: Chicago” viewers, some who clamored for Walker to stay and others who hoped she quit.
“I don’t want Charmaine to quit 9 mag 😢 that’s my girl.”
“Charmaine is my favorite from 9mag she is what Sky is to Black ink, the show just won’t work without them.”
“I hope Charmaine leaves she can go ❗️.”
“Ugh can @charmainej_tv leave already I’m tired of her ass…. I was so happy when Ryan kicked everybody out..”
“Charmaine so ugly and annoying 😂 and I don’t give a f–k what y’all say 🤷🏽♀️so she needs to go.”
Despite Walker being at the center of drama in the season’s return, she appears to be happy in her personal life. Her and boyfriend Neek Bey recently got engaged in March. Their wedding is apparently set to take place in fall 2020.
