The rapper who filmed and posted disturbing footage of Maia Campbell at a gas station is suddenly apologizing for how his actions have been perceived and wants LL Cool J to get in touch with him so that he can bring her to Maia himself.

“I never meant to hurt her or her fans,” the man known as T-Hood says in the caption of his Instagram video. Initially, T-Hood refused to apologize for posting Campbell looking disheveled, missing a tooth and demanding crack. In fact, once backlash against his role in the video ensued, he posted a video of himself denying that his actions were exploitative, and even dismissed Campbell’s bipolar disorder as playing a role in her compromised state.

I apologize. This is a person from my neighborhood that I’ve been cool with for years now. Roasting each other and playing around is nothing new, we always play around and talk shit to each other, ALWAYS! Even when she is not under the influence of anything, just regular Maia, it’s something we’ve just done for a while. I understand how it was perceived but I just want to let it be known publicly, I never meant to hurt her or her fans. I show love in anyway I can: financially, emotionally and with my time to EVERYONE in my community, the entire city can vouch for that. When I saw all the negative energy, the first thing I did was go and talk with her about it. Where did I find her?? Around the SAME AREA she always is. We also talked about the topic of LL COOL J looking for her, I won’t disclose the convo but I will say this, with ALL these media outlets and concerned people.. NOBODY took action in REAL LIFE and made a move, so I did! With word getting back to me that @llcoolj was now looking for her, I reached out to him myself, of course.. no response! But I know LL is a busy man, so I figured I’m just going to take matters into my own hands: Maia and I spent some time together, kicked it, talked about the situation and we both learned a lot, but I wont go in to too much detail. As the day was coming to an end, we discussed options for rehabilitation, even went to a center, she didnt want to check in just yet and as a grown woman, nobody can make her. We then made an agreement regarding her, myself, her health and our careers, time to push and make a real change! Everyone that wants to help, PLEASE CONTACT ME! @LLCOOLJ INCLUDED…. Again, I am sorry for anyone I hurt with the video; I know many think what I did was wrong, and I feel that way too but not because she was a star actress (which is why most of you are even interested) but because she really is a friend from around the way. In a way all this attention was a good thing, because we live in a “out of sight, out of mind” world, everyone would’ve continued to not care, if the video didn’t go “viral.” The video the man posted of her in the barbershop was completely staged and he paid her to say those thing

    Now he is trying to get in contact with Uncle L to try and get his dry @$$ career started. Do it because you want to help her. I’m sure he wouldn’t post a video of his drugged out family member. He is a hypocrite, trying to get his career started. A real man would never disrespect a female like he did or the fool from the barber shop. I pray Maia get well and keep away from people like them.

  2. The name T Hood says it all about you, now you want to apologizes AFTER you refused to from the start…… BOY GO SAT YO A$$ DOWN SOMEWHERE!!! Like I stated before mental health and drugs is a deadly combination but prayer and the power of the HOLY GHOST is a life saving combination. If you were a true “friend” and cared for her like you say, then you would have contacted LL yourself or put him in direct contact with Maia when he asked initially but you did neither of those instead you published her downfall for all the world to see. It seems that friends like you are the very reason she is in the state she’s in and you honestly don’t give a damn. Who knows what YOU have paid her to do as well…. SMDH!!
