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.
The picture of my mother and father at their wedding in Africa is my favorite picture. It’s unforgettable for so many reasons since it was the same year I was born and the same year my father was incarcerated for unfortunate circumstances. He named me from jail. After he was released, we were granted US visas and in 1996 I went on my first plane to go to America. I didn’t know any English. It was tough because I thought we were moving into the high rises of NYC, but we ended up in the back streets of the South Bronx lol. It was still better than back home in Morocco, but my father had a hard time and wanted to move back. My mother knew we couldn’t because there weren’t any opportunities there and she sacrificed a lot for us to survive in the states. We were on welfare and she worked overtime to keep us fed, clothed and a roof over our heads. I promised my mother that I would hustle and make my accomplishments unforgettable once I found my opportunity. I want other people who might be struggling to know that the sky is not the limit… You can do unforgettable things, so I present to you my single "Unforgettable". Feat @swaelee
