SHOW TRANSCRIPT

[MUSIC] The symbol, before a new edition came out, I do comedy. Woody does comedy. You know what I mean? So it was a Tweet that was tooken out of content what I said. The Tweet that I wrote was, If it ain't white it ain't right. Me going up through comedy, that's a comedy reference. Once you go black, you never go back. That's a comedy reference. So I feel like somebody took that Tweet, added more Tweets, photoshopped it, undefeated, you will not beat Photoshop. And they're adding more to my Tweets. I love black women, I always push for black women. When I shoot my videos, go to follow me @woody_thegreat, you will see all my content, I promote black love. If I was going to switch up, I would have did it three years ago when I started social media, you feel me? So there is no switching up for it. My mother is black. My sister is black. I love my black friends. I push my positivity. Every time I do my comedy videos, I'm doing it to put us in a positive light. So you see what I'm saying? So I'm not even mad that this happen. I'm actually happy. So I want my little African-American brothers, listen Y'all gotta understand this is not a joke. It's not sensitive, it's not funny no more. So yeah. [MUSIC]
