Weezy is under fire.

Lil Wayne has sparked outrage on social media after he claimed that he doesn’t understand the Black Lives Matter movement in a new interview.

When asked about the topic by a host on ABC show Nightline, the rapper appeared very confused.

"What is it? What do you mean?" he asked.

He then said he was “a young, black, rich mother*cker,” so he wasn’t connected to the movement, adding: “my life matter”.

In the full segment that aired on ABC, Lil Wayne reportedly moves his mic and storms out of the interview, saying: “I ain’t no f*ckin’ politician.”

Fans on Twitter have since slammed Lil Wayne for his opinions:

The interview reflects recent comments from Weezy on Black Lives Matter, where he told TV show Undisputed: “there’s no such thing as racism”.
