Boosie Badazz refuses peace talks with Jay-Z, says 'not sorry' for rant aimed at Dwayne Wade's transgender child
After appearing on The Breakfast Club show, Lil Boosie told the host Charlamagne that he wouldn't apologize, saying, 'I said what I said, man. I felt that was right'
The rapper Boosie Badazz aka Lil Boosie recently revealed that he turned down a clear-the-air meeting organized by the hip-hop mogul Jay-Z after his controversial comments about Dwyane Wade’s transgender daughter Zaya started going viral on social media. Appearing via video chat on the popular show 'The Breakfast Club' from his home, Boosie explained to the host Charlamagne tha God why he refused to apologize for his transphobic rant against Wade's 12-year-old daughter.
It all started when the NBA superstar appeared on Ellen DeGeneres's talk show on February 11 to talk about how his child Zaya was coming out as transgender. Shortly after this revelation, Boosie delivered a startling rant against the transgender community in a highly publicized Instagram video dated February 18. Addressing Wade directly, Boosie pleaded “You gone too f****** far... That is a male. A 12-year-old. At 12, they don't know what their next meal gonna be... Don’t cut his dick off, bro.” He also added, “He’s not up there yet. He hasn’t made his final decisions yet. You f****** trippin’, dawg.”
However, despite Boosie saying in the same Instagram clip that Wade's child could be gay if they chose to be, he again had to clarify that he was not homophobic in a recent 'The Breakfast Club' interview dated April 13. At around the 7-minute mark, Boosie let loose: “Let me make this clear... I have nothing against no gay people,” he said. “I got gay people in my family. My tour manager's gay. They flipped it on me.” Charlamagne chided him, saying that he should've have been minding his own business, instead of other people's affairs.
When Charlamagne asked Boosie whether he wanted to apologize for his controversial transphobic stance to the Wade family, the rapper retorted, “They already tried to do that. They were trying to hook up a meeting with Jay-Z.” He continued, “They say Jay-Z was gonna get him on the phone and all that s***, I need to apologize to save this, and save that..."
Boosie then made it absolutely clear that he wasn't planning to say sorry and doubled down emphatically: "Hey, tell Jay-Z I don’t wanna talk. I’m not apologizing for s***. I don’t give a f*** if Jesus calling to tell me to apologize. I said what I said, man. I felt that was right.” After Boosie explained his righteously indignant stance, Charlamagne advised him to “Mind your own business. Let people raise children the way they want to raise their children.”
