Lil Wayne Apologizes To The Till Family … Kind Of

Published

on

After comparing sex to the brutal beating and murder of Emmett Till, Lil Wayne is finally acknowledging that his offensive lyrics were wrong.

In February, Lil Wayne hopped on the song “Karate Chop” and dropped this verse, “Pop a lot of pain pills, ’bout to put rims on my skateboard wheels … beat that p***y up like Emmett Till.”

Obviously, this angered the Till family who then claimed the lyrics “infected the Internet” and demanded an apology from the “Lollipop” rapper.

Well, after a two month wait, they’ve finally got what they asked for…well, kind of. Wayne issued the following statement to the Till family.

“It has come to my attention that lyrics from my contribution to a fellow artist’s song has deeply offended your family. I would like to take a moment to acknowledge your hurt, as well as the letter you sent to me via your attorneys.”

If you notice, the letter doesn’t say “I’m sorry” but it does “acknowledge” their hurt.

Weezy went on to say, “As a father myself, I cannot imagine the pain that your family has had to endure. I have tremendous respect for those who paved the way for the liberty and opportunities that African-Americans currently enjoy.”

Still no “I’m sorry”…

Will also snapped some fun flicks with his son Jaden before greeting fans and speaking with reporters including HipHollywood.

He told HipHollywood that he was super excited to reunite with his Suicide Squad director David Ayer for the film, and would “work with him whenever he wants to.

“I love his madness how he creates,” gushes Smith. “How he thinks about scenes, the way he works with actors, it’s some of the best psychological work of any director I’ve ever worked with.”

In the film Smith plays an LAPD cop in a mythical world of orcs, elves and fairies … and Ayer told us, he couldn’t think of anyone better for the role.

“We had such a good time on Suicide Squad together and this role is kind of perfect for him, it’s an edgy movie, buts it’s funny. He’s got the best sense of humor of anybody I know.”

BRIGHT debuts on Netflix December 22. Peep the newest trailer below.
