Everyone has the right to free speech, but you have to be ready for the consequences when you say something controversial. Unfortunately, it seems Lil Wayne wasn’t.

Following the alarming comments he made about Black Lives Matter during his interview with Nightline, Weezy received some major backlash. Friends and foes alike ripped Wayne a new one on social media. Even rapper T.I.

This past week Gina has been very vocal via social media about gun legislation and the idea behind policy and change following the tragic high school massacre an Parkland, Florida.
Annihilation, also starring Oscar Isaac, hits theaters on February 23.
