You would probably hate to be Lil Wayne right now! Then again, knowing how tough the showbiz and entertainment industry is, controversy, is not always an automatic a negative thing. You would be surprised celebrities and artists deliberately stir up controversy (positive or negative notwithstanding) just to remain relevant in the industry. However, that is by no means an excuse for what Lil Tunechi said in an interview with ABC’s Nightline show on Tuesday night.
And boy, did Lil Wayne go at it, and kept going, even when you thought he would realize he’s making a fool of himself and a lot of people furious. Especially, Black people! Wizzy was asked what were his views on the Black Lives Matter movement. His answers were as ignorant as they were arrogant.
This what Wizzy had to say about BLM:
“What is it? What do you mean? 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.”
And just when you thought some sense was about to kick in, he now turns arrogant.
“I am a young, black rich m#$&#^$r. If that don’t let you know that America understand black m#$&#^$rs matter these days, I don’t know what it is. That man white, he filmin’ me. I’m a ni*$&a. I don’t know what you mean, man.
Don’t come at me with that dumb S*#!t, man. My life matter. Especially to my b!#*!s”
Wizzy then takes off his mic and ‘bounces’ off the set like the ignorant gangbanger he really is.
“I’m a gangbanger,” Wizzy says as he bounces off the set. “I ain’t no f*cking politician.”
Naturally, that level of ignorance and arrogance coming from such a famous hip hop artist would not go unnoticed. And boy, aren’t people roasting his ignorant a$$ on Twitter. Below is a sample of a couple tweets angry tweeps are throwing at the damn Lil Tunechi:

Ngl Lil Wayne doesn’t know what racism is until one of his closest family gets killed by a white cop for no reason.

Wizzy is in the business of making ‘ill lyrics’ not apologies. Although it appears he later gave an apology for his BLM comments.
