In a new interview, Tip said he singled Wayne out for the world to see so other people wouldn’t feel so compelled to.
“In a way I kinda did it so the people wouldn’t be able to do it. I felt like everything I said I said out of love. And I used Instagram as a forum because it was such a public matter. It wasn’t really me speaking to him as much as it is speaking to the kids I know that’s following him.” (“Sway In The Morning”)
Last fall, Wayne’s daughter Reginae Carter aired Tip out for publicly going at her dad.
Tip initially bashed Wayne on Instagram for not acknowledging the importance of Black Lives Matter.
Entertainment personality Dr. Boyce Watkins publicly ripped Wayne over his open apology for exploding during the “Nightline” interview.
“Hey what’s up, I’m Dr. Boyce Watkins. I’m here in Treport, Louisiana and I heard that Lil Wayne apologized for his disrespectful remarks about Black Lives Matter, about black people, about black women and you know, I would say it’s fine to apologize. But the thing is, he has to show that his apology is more than just a ploy for money or to protect his brand. The fact of the matter, brother, is you have a lot to apologize for. You really need to kind of apologize for the last 15 years. You’ve got a daughter and you’ve been calling a lot of other people’s daughters b*tches and h*es but in the interview you got mad because the interviewer said – asked you how you feel about your own daughter being cast as a b*tch and a h*e. Well, if you don’t like your own daughter being cast in that light, why are you putting my daughter in that light? Why are you putting other black men’s daughters in that light? Or just other men’s daughters and women’s daughters in that light? It’s wrong. I think you need to apologize a lot. I think about 8,000 apologies will do the trick.”
After massive backlash, Wayne issued an apology over his hard-hitting Black Lives Matter remarks.
Wayne tells TMZ … “When the reporter began asking me questions about my daughter being labeled a b*tch and a h*e, I got agitated. From there, there was no thought put into her questions and my responses.” Wayne told us, “Apologies to anyone who was offended.” (TMZ)
