Young Thug Responds to Criticism for Calling Airline Staff 'Nappy Peasants'

He says he doesn't "do politics."

Published December 8, 2016

Young Thug has found himself in quite the predicament after an attempt to generously offer two young airport employees $15,000 a piece to quit their jobs went horribly awry. 

The strange gesture was also met with offensive commentary, with him referring to the two Black women as "ants" and "nappy peasants" after he claimed the two were interfering with him making his flight. Naturally, no one with a Wi-Fi connection was going to let the rapper get away with such horrific and disrespectful commentary towards the women. Now Thugger is succumbing to pressure to respond and apologize.

In light of his Twitter mentions absolutely being set on fire, Young Thug posted a series of now-deleted tweets, including one saying, "Oh ya and the ladies behind the counter was disrespectful too... two sides to every story #UDIGG."

The rapper later took to his Instagram to address the situation once more, but didn't necessarily share any remorse for his inexcusable behavior.

"Ya’ll so much of hypocrites," he says in the clip. "If a n***a godd**n put a b***h in place for playing games, you out there tryna bash him. But ya’ll be the same motherf**kers that upload 15 black girls round this motherf***er fighting and godd**n tryna kill each other with knives and bats and s**t."

So yeah, that's that. There's a good chance that Young Thug may not be met with as much love from his fans as usual at his show this evening as the video clip of him lashing out at the women continues to go viral

Young Thug is slated to perform tonight in Portland along with 21 Savage. We'll keep you posted if anything else regarding this disgusting incident goes down.

Take a look at Young Thug's latest commentary on the matter in the clip below.

I don't do politics is too close to police.....
