Recording artist Erykah Badu cautions the community not to rush to judgment…
She asked is every had all the facts straight since “every headline written about me was all out of context and manipulated to trigger YOUR outrage.”
The singer explained, “This is not in ref to my brother Jussie. This is across the Board. Period,” she warned “Don’t try it, fam.”
“I was encouraging the group to wait for the FACTS before making a sound judgment on ANYTHING,” she later clarified. “I used my situation as an example. At the same time I received news our bro Jussie was attacked. I had already started this convo when I was alerted.The two were entangled.”
