Wayne explains why he dissed Black Lives Matter on Nightline.
Hours after standing by his rant against the Black Lives Matter movement, Lil Wayne has apologized for the comments. Wayne explained to TMZ that he was upset by host Lindsay Davis’s line of questioning about his daughter. “When the reporter began asking me questions about my daughter being labeled a b!tch and a hoe, I got agitated,” he said. “From there, there was no thought put into her questions and my responses.” He extended the following apology: “Apologies to anyone who was offended.”
Davis asked Wayne if he would be offended if someone called his daughter a “b!tch” or a “hoe,” as he has called many women in his music. Later in the interview, Wayne rubbed many viewers the wrong way when he said he doesn’t care about the Black Lives Matter movement and added that anyone who does is “crazy as shit.” “My life matter, especially to my bitches,” he said.
