Rising rapper DDG upset some people online for what he said about an iconic Civil Rights activist and racism. The YouTuber-turned-musician even caught the comedic wrath of Insecure actress Amanda Seales.
“I didn’t know people were this racist. I didn’t know this,” said DGG in a recent interview with Bootleg Kev. He continued, “I thought that s### was gone. I thought Martin Luther King canceled this s### out. This s### is crazy.”
DDG’s statement was a response to the race-based vitriol aimed at his Black girlfriend, Halle Bailey, for starring as Ariel in the fictional The Little Mermaid. According to DDG, his MLK point was just an exaggeration, not a dismissal of bigotry in America.
