NEW YORK, Nov. 3 (UPI) – Lil Wayne apologized for dismissive comments he made about the Black Lives Matter movement during an interview with ABC’S Nightline.

Speaking with TMZ, the rapper later said he was negative toward Black Lives Matter due to earlier questions from reporter Linsey Davis about his daughter.

“When the reporter began asking me questions about my daughter being labeled a [expletive] and a hoe, I got agitated,” Wayne said. “From there, there was no thought put into her questions and my responses.”

“Apologies to anyone who was offended,” he said.

Wayne orginally called Black Lives Matter “weird” and said he did not feel connected to it.

“I am a young, black, rich [expletive]. If that don’t let you know that America understand black [expletive] matter these days, I don’t know what it is. Don’t come at me with that dumb [expletive], ma’am. My life matter, especially to my [expletive],” Wayne said Tuesday.

“I don’t feel connected to a [expletive] thing that ain’t got nothin’ to do with me. If you do, you crazy as [expletive],” the 34-year-old added before he took out a red cloth and cut the interview short. “I’m connected to this flag right [expletive] here, because I’m connected. I’m a gang banger now.”

As Wayne walked away from the interview, he could be heard explaining “I ain’t no [expletive] politician.”

The questions regarding his daughter came about after Davis pressed Wayne about the content of his music, which includes misogynistic and offensive language.

When asked if he would have a problem with someone calling his daughter a hoe, Wayne responded, “If they’re calling her a [expletive] or a hoe, I have a huge problem with that. Yeah, but I’ve never called a certain female that name unless I got a real big problem with her.”

Wayne had appeared on Nightline to promote his recently released jail memoir Gone ‘Til November that covers his time spent at Rikers Island in 2010.
