Lil Wayne is as unapologetic as they come and doesn’t hold his tongue when it comes to his feelings on matters. Wayne has come under intense scrutiny after Nightline dropped an interview where the rapper made it clear he doesn’t rock with the Black Lives Matter movement. Wayne posted one response to the fallout from the interview and at the time it seemed like he was sticking to his guns asking in a tweet “Is intelligence always misunderstood?”
Well it looks like Wayne is taking back those words after he issued and apology through TMZ.
Wayne was quickly called out for his comments and the internet took him to task for his at what seemed at the time hypocritical statements on the movement.
Video footage of Wayne shouting Black Lives Matter during a concert immediately surfaced after the Nightline interview hit the web.
So what was Wayne’s reasoning to his rant? Well Wayne is blaming the questions that was asked about his daughter as the sole reason he made those comments about Black Lives Matter.
Wayne exclusively told TMZ:
“When the reporter began asking me questions about my daughter being labeled a bitch and a hoe, I got agitated. From there, there was no thought put into her questions and my responses.”
Wayne then followed that up with:
“Apologies to anyone who was offended.”
We hope that apology is sincere. The issue has not gone away yet though,today rapper Vic Mensa who is very vocal when it comes to social matters in the black community touched on Wayne’s comments.
During an AMA on Reddit, speaking on his upcoming album Mensa had this to say about the Wayne’s Black Lives Matter comments:
“I think it’s a very ignorant, selfish & isolated position to take.”
Well said Vic!
While Wayne’s excuse for his statements and behavior were very lame, do you accept his apology?
