Twitter Erupts After Lil Wayne Says He “Doesn’t Feel Connected” to Black Lives Matter

"My life matters, especially to my b-tches."

Lil Wayne is fed up with people asking him about the current state of Blacks in America. During a recent chat with ABC’s Nightline, the rapper was asked whether he regretted saying there is “no such thing as racism” and his stance on Black Lives Matter, and he went off!

Weezy said, “That just sounds weird. I don’t even know why 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-cked up reason… I am a young, black, rich motherf-cker. If that don’t let you know that America understand Black motherf-ckers matter these days, I don’t know what it is. Don’t come at me with that dumb sh-t, ma’am. My life matter, especially to my bitches.”

Lil Wayne didn’t stop there, he added, “I don’t feel connected to a damn thing that ain’t got nothin’ to do with me. If you do, you crazy as sh-t,” right before pulling a red cloth out of his back pocket. He said, “I’m connected to this flag right f-cking here, because I’m connected. I’m a gangbanger now.

His antics opened the door for a huge debate on social media. Many fans and supporters sympathized with Lil Wayne’s comments.

While others dragged the rapper for being so detached from issues plaguing his community.

Maybe in Lil Wayne’s world, racism doesn’t exist. He’s been wealthy and detached from poverty for so long that maybe he just doesn’t relate to the social and political injustices faced by people who look like him. What do you think?
