Yesterday, French Montana found himself under fire for a tweet that set the internet ablaze, and definitely not in a good way. After a female fan dissed him tweeting, “The fact that French Montana thinks anyone cares about him…,” the artist clapped back by calling her out.
“U musty crusty dusty rusty ass ho,” tweets Montana, doing his best Dr. Seuss impression. “With them nappy ass poetic justice braids take your cum drinking Dick banging ass somewhere n be humble.”
While tons of users and fans chimed in on the ordeal, the New York artist called into The Breakfast Club this morning, where he gave his candid thoughts on the exchange, as well as the outrage coming from the web.
Elaborating on the “nappy” comment, the MC stated, “I didn’t say that [to every woman], I said that to her. I love my Queens, but I can’t take it when somebody come at me then when I clap back…y ou know what I’m saying?” I’m not gonna let nobody say something to me and I don’t say nothing back. I don’t know why they turned it to like a racist thing. There’s other things to worry about that’s really racist out here. I’m just defending myself. You can’t defend yourself out here no more?”
As far as his understanding of the term, he said, “I ain’t know ‘nappy’ was a racist word. I didn’t know if you called somebody… if you say ‘they nappy’ it’s like you say ‘they black.’”
