Amid 'Nappy' Tweet Backlash, French Montana Made a Drastic Move on Instagram

He's not the first rapper to make this rash decision.

Published 3 weeks ago

Earlier today (April 6) French Montana found himself under fire for a tweet that set the internet ablaze, and definitely not in a good way.

While the tweet in question was a disrespectful clapback to a fan and has since been "explained" — as well as an apology issued — the internet is not quite ready to forgive and forget.

Taking to social media, French Montana reactivated his previously deleted Instagram account, re-emerging on the platform to share an honest update with his fans.

After wiping his posting history clean, perhaps metaphorically to get a fresh start, he shared two promotional images, as well as revealed a bit of a personal story about where he came from.

However, despite his former apology, fans are still digging in at the rapper in the comments section on Instagram, with many keeping a razor-sharp focus on the disgusting nature of his discriminatory and distasteful tweet he previously made.

One can only hope he learned this lesson the hard way and will refrain from using such poor judgment when interacting with his fans in the future. 

Take a look at French Montana's approach at getting personal with his fans, following receiving a major dragging from social media, in the posts below.
