Lil Wayne is backtracking on his confusing Black Lives Matter comments during a Nightline interview that caused an uproar once it aired.

When asked his thoughts on the movement, he appeared to not know it existed, nor understand its cause. He dug an even deeper hole when he said he didn’t feel any connection to the movement because it had nothing to do with him.

“I don’t feel connected to a damn thing that ain’t got nothin’ to do with me. If you do, you crazy as s—t. You. Not the camera, you. Feeling connected to something that ain’t got nothing to do with you? If it ain’t got nothing to do with me, I ain’t connected to it,” he said.

Wayne must have heard the outcry over his comments loud and clear, and apologized for them—though his reasoning was odd. He blamed his rant on questions Nightline’s Linsey Davis asked him about his daughter.

“When the reporter began asking me questions about my daughter being labeled a bitch and a hoe, I got agitated. From there, there was no thought put into her questions and my responses,” he told TMZ.

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

His apology may just be a day late and a dollar short, as many were surprised by how out of touch he appeared to be with the community.
