Waka Flocka Flame’s camp is firing back at critics who slammed the rapper after he mad remarks about what he sees as the increasing popularity of White women.
“Used to be black girls was the baddest sh*t, you know what I mean? … White women are poppin’ right now, man. They f*ckin’ poppin’. Imma just be real,” the “No Hands” rapper shared in a recent interview.
The comments ignited a debate on social networking websites, with many Black women taking offense to the comments. “It was so hard to follow this interview and it makes me sad that we have Black men that actually talk like this. It is disgusting that some of these rappers can barely speak clearly in an interview,” one woman wrote on Facebook.
HipHollywood reached out to Waka’s camp following his comments to give him a chance to respond to the drama, and this was the statement released to us by Kali Mari-Bowyer.
“Waka said nothing wrong. Everyone wants to jump on the ‘racial band wagon’, however if the tables were turned and he praised African American women instead, it would have not been an issue because its hip-hop. Waka sees beauty in all women.”
Another source close to the rapper added, “Tell them to get a life, he said NOTHING wrong.”
Everyone is certainly entitled to their opinion, but do you think Waka’s comments were out of line? Sound off in the comments.
