“In a recent verse on the song “Jodeci Freestyle”, I said something highly offensive to people with Autism. Last week, when I first saw a comment from someone outraged about the lyric, I realized right away that what I said was wrong. I was instantly embarrassed that I would be ignorant enough say something so hurtful. What makes the crime worse is that I should have known better,” the rapper wrote.

Holly, the mother of 15-year-old Rodney who is autistic, was offended and hurt by the rapper’s choice of words. During a recent interview with Access Hollywood, Peete expressed that J. Cole needed to apologize.

Looks like Holly is proud of Cole’s decision to publicly say “I’m sorry.”
