Lil Wayne has finally broken his silence on his decision to pull Nicki Minaj from the Hot 97 Summer Jam line up. He makes it clear that he believes that all women should be respected no matter what, and stand by his belief that if his artist felt disrespected in anyway that it was a no brainer to pull her from the stage. In an interview with MTV News, Weezy stated:
“First of all, I approached the situation like this: that’s a female. First and foremost Nicki Minaj is a female. I don’t know what anyone else believes but I believe females deserve the ultimate respect at all times. No matter what, when, where or how. So, as soon as she called me and said that she felt disrespected, I just declined everything. I pulled her from the show because first of all no person that works with me will be disrespected in my presence as long as I’m on this planet. And like I said, she’s a female first and foremost so I expected the red carpet…in her manner the pink carpet to be laid out. It’s just an executive move. No bad feelings, no hard feelings, like I said in my opinion she said she was disrespected [and] that’s a woman. I feel like a woman should be respected at all times. Therefore I believe that I made the right decision.”
Do you think Wayne made the right decision?
