Wale speaks about the WWE “Monday Night Raw” incident that happened last night (March 31st) in Washington, D.C. Wale and an instigator on Twitter got into a war of words on Twitter which escalated into a physical altercation when Wale found him at the wrestling event.
“I was like, ‘Yo, is this you?’ And one thing lead to another, and I just kind of mushed him a little bit,” the rapper said to MTV News. “Honestly, if there wasn’t kids right there, it would have went a little bit differently, but I just wanted to be conscious of them. It’s not to say it was the right decision. But in the moment, you know.”
“People get it misconstrued,” says Wale. “Like, ‘Oh, you’re so butt-hurt.’ It’s not even that. I come from a place where when we was at the lunch table and n—as was jonesing on each other, I’ll respond. I’m gonna have something better, too. And now we’ve come to a place where, if you respond, you’re a bitch. Somebody could say ‘F— you’ 100 times, if I say ‘f— you’ back, then I’m a bitch. And people be like, ‘You’re famous, you shouldn’t care.’ ”
Video of the altercation can be seen below.
