Holly Robinson Peete posted a video of her 15-year-old son Rodney thanking J. Cole for his public apology after offensive autism lyric.
In the video posted on Peete’s Instagram account, Rodney shared a very sweet message. “I just read your apology. Words can be powerful. Thanks for what you wrote,” the 15-year-old said.
On Monday morning, J Cole released an apology for using an offensive autism lyric in Drake’s “Jodeci Freestyle.”
“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.”
