T.I. is calling comments Lil’ Wayne made about the Black Lives Matter movement unacceptable.
“I’m at a loss for words here, ” posted Clifford “T.I.” Harris in an Instagram Post.
DeWayne “Lil’ Wayne” Carter conducted an interview with ABC Nightline in which he said that the Black Lives Matter movement didn’t have anything to do with him.
“I don’t feel connected to a damn thing that ain’t got nothing to do with me, ” responded Lil’ Wayne to a question about his thoughts on the Black Lives Matter movement. “If you do, you’re crazy.”
The comments, which included sentiments such as Wayne not feeling connected to Black Lives Matter and him commenting that his life mattered, whipped up a social media storm. Wayne attempted to block the interview from being aired on television and fired his publicist when he was unable to do so.
Wayne would clarify his comments by saying that he got upset when the reporter in the interview asked questions about his thoughts on his daughter possibly being called vulgar names when he uses those same names to refer to women in general.
“From there, there was no thought put into her questions and my responses,” said Wayne. “Apologies to anyone who was offended.”
“I KNOW you wired a bit different than most other responsible adults, but still … U TRIPPING!!!!” posted T.I. in response to the Lil’ Wayne comments. “I don’t know what you goin thru,or what you are attempting to avoid but this … is absolutely unacceptable!!!! You’re disrespecting yourself, bringing shame on your family name & tarnishing your legacy.”
