Lil Wayne is backtracking on his comments tied to the Black Lives Matter movement during a recent interview with ABC’s Nightline, pinning his remarks to the reporter’s line of questioning.
“When the reporter began asking me questions about my daughter being labeled a bitch and a hoe, I got agitated,” he said in a statement to TMZ. “From there, there was no thought put into her questions and my responses.”
Lil Wayne also adds this statement on his social media account. “Is Intelligence Always Misunderstood?”
