Wale was two seconds from laying ‘dem paws’ on a white chick outside Bootsy Bellows Tuesday night. Per video posted on TMZ, the DMV rapper was seen confronting a woman outside of the club when she blew a massive cloud of cigarette smoke in his face … and he went nuts.

 

It’s not clear what caused the altercation. In the video you can hear the woman, with lit cigarette in hand, say, “Are you really following me?” before intentionally blowing the smoke in Wale’s face. Angered, he then knocks her food to the ground, and appears to be ready to full-on fight her and her friend when his friend pulls him away. It’s kind of hilarious … sorry.

Wale did go on “TMZ Live” this morning to explain his side of things. Apparently, the girl’s friend (pictured in the yellow) had gotten into a fight earlier in the evening and Wale tried to make light of it. Evidently, the girls didn’t find it humorous and hit him with a “you people,” which he took as a racial insult. He said, with his daughter in his lap, that he would never hit a girl, but at the time, he didn’t think she deserved to eat. Ha! His words, not ours.

Exclusive: Sorry, Folks, Diddy Did NOT Offer H&M Model A Contract

Published

Last week rumors started circulating that Diddy had offered Liam Mango, the young model featured in the H&M ad a Sean John modeling contract. Unfortunately those reports, as sweet as they sound, aren’t true.

Diddy spoke to reporters backstage before a tapping of his new show The Four  and clarified what really happened.

“I didn’t actually offer a modeling contract to him I told my people to reach out to him so we could use him in the next shoot that we do,” he explained.  “But with that being said, I think that what we’re seeing is just a general insensitivity to how we feel you know. I think that H&M is going to feel the results of that.”

H&M has issued an official apology for featuring Mango on their website in a “Coolest Monkey In The Jungle” hoodie, saying in a statement : “We sincerely apologize for offending people with this image of a printed hooded top. The image has been removed from all online channels and the product will not be for sale in the United States. We believe in diversity and inclusion in all that we do and will be reviewing all our internal policies accordingly to avoid any future issues.”

After photos of the young boy hit the web, folks started speaking out against the retailer calling them racist and insensitive. But one person not feeling that way was Mango’s mother. She posted her thoughts Facebook questioning what all the fuss is about. “I really don’t understand but not coz am choosing not to but because it’s not my way of thinking, sorry.”

She and the boys father Terry Odhiambo have since had a change of heart appearing on ITV on Monday, saying they don’t think that there’s ever an “overreaction when it comes to racism”.

They also said they’ve had to move from their home in Sweden, and haven’t been able to live a normal life since the controversy started.
