Chaos ensued after an old video of Saweetie laughing at colorist comments while interacting with rapper and record producer Too $hort resurfaced on the Internet. The ‘Tap In’ hitmaker soon started trending as social media users got into a heated debate. The female emcee, however, decided to speak out and urged that the full video should have been shared.

Saweetie got dragged by a Twitter user to which the former decided to call out after she got blocked by the same. The award-winning emcee faced heat for laughing at Too $hort’s comments where he discussed biracial or multiracial people. In the old live-stream video, Too $hort said he hasn’t fallen in love with a woman that has not been mixed, adding that mixed kids were pretty, regardless of how their parents looked like. Saweetie was seen laughing at these comments which quickly broke the Internet. However, later in the video, she tells Too Short that Black women were "beautiful on their own," without having to be mixed with any other race.
