Lil Wayne Apologizes For Black Lives Matter Comments – Says He Was “Agitated”
Lil Wayne has apologized for his anti Black Lives Matter comments during a recent interview.
“I don’t feel connected to a damn thing that ain’t got nothing to do with me,” the rapper told Nightline in a recent interview. He added he was young, black and rich. “My life matter, especially to my b*tches,” he said, winking at the camera.
Wayne backtracked Wednesday, according to TMZ, apologizing for causing any offense he may have caused and blaming the reporter for his attitude.
Wayne tells TMZ:
“When the reporter began asking me questions about my daughter being labeled a b*tch and a ho, I got agitated. From there, there was no thought put into her questions and my responses. Apologies to anyone who was offended.”
