Stevie Wonder Criticizes Lil Wayne for Emmett Till Lyric

The criticism keeps coming for New Orleans rapper Lil Wayne, whose recent "beat that pussy up like Emmett Till" quip on Future's "Karate Chop" remix has incited controversy.

In an interview with Associated Press, Stevie Wonder offered his own take on the situation: "You can't equate that to Emmett Till. You just cannot do that," he said. "I think you got to have someone around you that - even if they are the same age or older - is wiser to say, 'Yo, that's not happening. Don't do that.'"

Epic Records has pulled the unauthorized song and issued an apology.
