J. Cole Apologizes For Offensive Autism Lyric

Published

J. Cole issued an apology on Sunday afternoon after offensive autism lyric. 

“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.

“Go check the numbers dummy, that’s just me gettin’ started /I’m artistic, you n—as is autistic, retarded,” is what Cole rapped during the song that offended mother’s and familes nation wide. 

“To the entire Autism community who expressed outrage, I’m moved and inspired by your passion, and I’m amazed at how strong you are as a unit … To anyone suffering from Autism, either mildly or severely, I am sorry. I’m bound to make mistakes in my life, but in my heart I just want to spread Love,” the 28-year-old wrote.

Actress Holly Robinson Peete, a mother of a 15-year-old autistic son, was one of several people who spoke out about J. Cole’s lyric.

“It hurt my feelings so much. I just don’t think these artists know how powerful they are. Because my son is struggling to fit in, and I mean struggling, so when I see an artist, with this kind of following, who is writing not just autistic, but trying to make it the new r-word, it is not going to happen on our watch … I hope he apologizes and I hope he takes it out,” Peete explained during a recent interview with Access Hollywood.

Reality Show Curse Strikes Again? Lyrica Anderson & A1 May Be Searching For A Storyline, Not A Separation

Published

Here we go again. Another reality TV couple bites the dust … or gets hella dramatic on social media in order to secure a new storyline. You decide!

Love and Hip Hop: Hollywood star Lyrica Anderson had everyone talking when she took to Snapchat to post this little message.

The singer/songwriter outed her husband A1 Bentley as a cheater and vowed that she was #single … all on Snapchat. We’re calling BS, and here’s why — Princess Love. This whole “my man is cheating so I’m outing him on social media” must be in the Love & Hip Hop playbook. Ray J’s wife pulled the same stunt just a few weeks ago and we all know how that ended … with them back together. Honestly, this happens every season, and every season we fall for it. Well, no more.

Lyrica, we know you just put out new music and you want everyone to hear it, but this ain’t the way, sis. And A1, nice try with the whole, “I’m going to delete all her pics on IG” move, but we’ve been here, done that. We not falling for these antics anymore so it would be really dope if y’all would stop playing games and just be a happy married couple. Save the forced drama for Joseline Hernandez.
