Even though Pharrell gave his stamp of approval for Hilary Clinton to be the next leader of the free world, it seems that the King of The South, doesn’t feel the same. In a sit-down interview with DJ Whoo Kid, T.I. made it known that a female shouldn’t be the next female president.
“Not to be sexist but, I can’t vote for the leader of the free world to be a woman. Just because, every other position that exists, I think a woman could do well. But the president? It’s kinda like, I just know that women make rash decisions emotionally – they make very permanent, cemented decisions – and then later, it’s kind of like it didn’t happen, or they didn’t mean for it to happen. And I sure would hate to just set off a nuke. [Other leaders] will not be able to negotiate the right kinds of foreign policy; the world ain’t ready yet. I think you might be able to the Loch Ness Monster elected before you could [get a woman].”
After receiving heavy backlash for his comments about
Clinton a female president, Tip issued an apology via Twitter.
My comments about women running for president were unequivocally insensitive and wrong. I sincerely apologize to everyone I offended.
