Rap megastar Lil Wayne spoke out about the tragic death of George Floyd and the riots happening all over America today during an Instagram Live.
Wayne’s comments were surprising. He told protesters to stop blaming every cop and making it all about race.
He continued by saying the people protesting need to get the facts straight before they blame anyone.
“I think when we see these situations, I think we also have to understand that we have to get very specific.”
“We have to get so specific and what I mean by that, we have to stop viewing it from such a broad view, meaning we have to stop placing the blame on the whole force and the whole everybody of a certain race or everybody with a badge.”
“We have to actually get into who that person is…And if we want to place the blame on anybody, it should be ourselves for not doing more than what we think we’re doing.”
“What we need to do, we need to learn about it more. If we want to scream about something, know what we’re screaming about. You wanna protest about something, know what we protesting about. It’s a bunch of facts that we think we know that we don’t know. If we want to get into it, know what we talkin’ about before we talk about it.”
