A$AP Rocky‘s recent statement about how only ‘light-skinned’ women can wear red lipstick caused an uproar recently.
He’s taking his words back and wanted to clear up his intentions.
“I’m sorry if it hurt any dark-skinned girls’ feelings,” Rocky told DC radio station 93.9 WKYS FM. However, in the next breath states that he meant what he said at the time. Here’s more from Rocky’s comments:
“Black girls just, ah man, went crazy. They just took it how they took it. This is actually my second time talking about it cause I really don’t really look at it as an issue. If people get upset at that I think it’s petty at the same time. It’s like they damn near wanna Rick Ross boycott me right now, over some lipstick controversy. Black girls, you know how sensitive they are, but they our sisters, man. It is what is man. I come from a black home, so I know how sensitive black women can be. Especially when you talking about they looks or something like that. You can’t say nothing about they glasses, they nails, none of that because then you’re a womanizer or you’re a racist. I don’t know how I’m going to be racist. I have to wake up and look at my black ass in the mirror everyday. It’s like, what are you talking about? But it is what it is, man. I’m proud to be black.”
What do you think? Was A$AP Rocky wrong in his comment about dark-skinned women?
