Lil Wayne apologizes for BLM comments: ‘I got agitated’

During an interview on “Nightline,” Lil Wayne said “I don’t know what you mean” when asked about the Black Lives Matter movement, but after his comments sparked severe backlash against him, he is walking them back.

At first, he wrote on Twitter, “Is intelligence always misunderstood?”

Then, he explained his comments, saying that he was “agitated” when he was asked about Black Lives Matter: “When the reporter began asking me questions about my daughter being labeled a b***h and a hoe, I got agitated. From there, there was no thought put into her questions and my responses.”

“Apologies to anyone who was offended,” he added.

Originally, Lil Wayne said of the Black Live Matter movement: “That just sounds weird, I don’t know, that you put a name on it. It’s not a name, it’s not ‘whatever, whatever,’ it’s somebody got shot by a policeman for a f***ed up reason.”

He then continued, “I am a young black rich motherf***er. If that don’t let you know that America understand black motherf***ers matter these days, I don’t know what it is.”

“I don’t know what you mean, man, don’t come at me with that dumb a** sh*t, ma’am. My life matter,” he added.
