21 Savage Responds to Accusations of Promoting Rape Culture
It doesn't take much to have the Internet all up in arms. 21 Savage was recently the target of backlash, after tweeting out something that appeared to have rape connotations.
Yesterday (Jan. 20), the Savage Mode rapper hopped on Twitter and expressed his feelings about how he should be treated by the opposite sex. "I work hard so I feel like the ladies supposed to fuck me and let me do my thing. It's mandatory you please me for all this hard work," he posted
Taking the tweet as meaning he advocates rape culture, many questioned the rapper's motives. "Young Savage why you rape culturing so hard?," one user asked.
"@21savage Issa man engaging in rape culture," another responded.
In since deleted tweets, the Atlanta rapper has clapped back at those who he says misconstrued his words. "Everything I say y'all try and twist it fuck I look like supporting rape y'all dum as fuck," he responded. "A real bitch should see how hard a real nigga is working and want to give him Lee way and not try and make him commit or tie him down...Read next time before y'all try n find any reason to hang me I'm to player and nice to women to support some sick ass shit like dat."
