French is under fire!

French Montana has sparked an outrage in Trindad and Tobago after labelling the Caribbean nation a “third world” country. 

The ‘Unforgettable’ rapper, who was in the country during its popular Carnival season, let his fans know about his arrival at the airport with a controversial Instagram post.

Posting a picture of himself in Piarco International Airport, he wrote: “Immigration waiting for me when I landed in Trinidad. But much love to the beautiful people in Trinidad we had a blast #3rdWorld #Dreamers” 

However after he posted the image, he was immediately flooded with comments from fans, who lots agreed he was being disrespectful. 

Since the initial backlash, French Montana has removed the hashtag from the post.

Meanwhile, Trindad and Tobago has welcomed other celebrities during its Carnival season including Cardi B – who has family that originate in Trinidad.
