Chuck D claimed that Public Enemy's messy public breakup with Flavor Flav in March was actually all a hoax to promote "Food As A Machine Gun," a new song from Enemy Radio ("the DJ+MC auxiliary unit of Public Enemy made up of Chuck D, DJ Lord, Jahi and the S1Ws") which both Chuck D and Flavor Flav appear on as guests. It is April Fool's Day but it was still a little weird, and now Flav has responded to Chuck on Twitter, saying "I am not part of your hoax."

"There are more serious things in the world right now than April Fool's jokes and dropping records," Flav continued. "The world needs better than this,,,you say we are leaders so act like one,,,donate to those in need." He then linked to MusiCares' Coronavirus Relief Fund.

In his message, Chuck D wrote, "hearing the confused mush of political talk while under the bowels of Trumpotus made me use a presidential stage as my platform. Out of this storm came a plan between Flav and me to remind people that what’s important should have as much, if not more, value than just what’s popular. Thus came the HOAX, our ‘War Of The Worlds.’ Believe half of what you hear and NONE of what you see."
