Rapper pushes blame onto news reporter.

Lil Wayne has apologised for his controversial comments on the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement, which he made during an interview this week. 

The rapper previously dismissed the movement, claiming that it has ’nothing to do’ with him and that he doesn’t feel ‘connected to a damn thing’.

Watch the interview here:

Public outcry ensued, with users on social media taking a strong stand against Weezy’s shocking comments.

However, Wayne went on to defend himself yesterday, claiming that the reporter riled him up afterr her previous questions surrounding his daughter, according to TMZ.

'When the reporter began asking me questions about my daughter being labeled a bitch and a hoe, I got agitated,' he said.

'From there, there was no thought put into her questions and my responses.'

Wayne told the site, 'Apologies to anyone who was offended.'

The questions Wayne was referring to enquired as to how Wayne would react to someone calling his daughter a 'ho'.

'By a certain person, if they're coming directly at her, yeah,' Lil Wayne said. 'If they're calling her a b---- or a ho, I have a huge problem with that.'

'Yeah, but I've never called a certain female that name unless I got a real big problem with her.'

Shortly after the interview went viral, Wayne posted this cryptic tweet, possibly hinting at his controversial views.

Wayne is currently busy promoting his upcoming biography, Gone 'Til November: A Journal of Rikers Island.

The book will cover the rapper's eight-month stint in New York's Rikers Island prison in 2010, following a weapons conviction.
