Vince Staples Defends Christian Mother That Criticized His "Norf Norf" Song

(AllHipHop News) One Christian mother from Oklahoma is not feeling Vince Staples' single "Norf Norf" at all.
Krystle Partido became a viral sensation this week after posting an 11-minute video to the web where she was ranting about the Summertime '06 song playing on her town's radio station.
She even took time to read some of the lines from "Norf Norf" on camera before breaking down over children possibly hearing the track.
"I could not believe what I was hearing. This is on our local radio station. This crap is being played,” said Partido. “I couldn’t even believe the words that I was listening to. As a mom, it infuriated me. Like why is this one here? Obviously the cuss words were bleeped out, but I’m not stupid.”
The collective internet then began bashing the woman by posting memes and remix videos making fun of her.
Partido also faced negative reactions from social media users for repeating curse words and the word "n-gga" in front of her young child that was in the background.
However, Staples is not jumping on the backlash train. The Long Beach, California representative apparently defended Partido in an interview with The Independent.
“I don’t really have much to say about the video. I don’t think it’s funny at all,” said Staples. “It’s not right to attack someone over their stance, their opinions, and their religion. I think that’s very immature.”
"We already have a lot of issues between black and white relations in this country based on misunderstandings,” Staples is quoted saying. “In my eyes, she doesn’t look like a racist. She doesn’t look like a mean person. But it’s not very responsible for people to try to take that and jump, looking for some sort of commentary on these issues [in the community].”
However, Staples later claimed on Twitter the author of the article misquoted him, and the Def Jam recording artist further clarified the point he was attempting to make.
