Rapper Killer Mike is being accused of sexism after a quote he made was taken out of context. During a Bernie Sanders rally at Morehouse College on Tuesday, Mike recounted a conversation he had with anti-racism activist and feminist, Jane Elliott.

” … I talked to Jane Elliott a few weeks ago, and Jane said, ‘Michael, a uterus doesn’t qualify you to be president of the United States. You have to be—you have to have policy that’s reflective of social justice. Paying women a fair wage is social justice … ending a bullsh*t drug war is social justice. Making sure our children can go to college is social justice,” the rapper turned political activist shared.

Unfortunately for Mike, a clip of him only saying “a uterus doesn’t qualify you to be president” began circulating online. Brad Woodhouse, president of pro-Clinton super PAC Correct the Record, tweeted that Killer Mike’s words were “sexist bullsh*t.”

Fortunately, a lot of people saw right through the political games being played and defended the rapper.

Jane Elliott also defended Killer Mike, telling the Huffington Post, “I think the reaction is because a man said what I said. If a woman had made that statement there would have been no problem, but because a man said it, it becomes a sexist statement. It’s a ridiculous thing to be upset about,” Elliott told The Huffington Post. “It should be a fact of life that neither gender nor skin color should determine whether you are appropriate for leadership of the government of the United States of America.”
