21 Savage showed a strong sense of humor by admitting he found some of the memes regarding his immigration status funny. As a result, fans of Demi Lovato are taking this comment out of context to try to pressure Wale into apologizing to the pop star. But Folarin is not folding.
During an interview with the New York Times, 21 spoke on about the support he did and didn't receive. This turned into a conversation about the memes that circulated following his arrest. "Some of them was funny—I ain’t gonna lie. I was appreciative of that. I coulda been another person who just, 'He locked up? Damn,' and nobody said nothing," Savage said. "Some people, I see why they was mad. It ain’t about the meme, it’s about the bigger picture. But I done been through way worse things in my life than somebody putting me on a meme."
Many took this response and directed it toward Wale, who criticized Lovato for citing the 21 memes as the "best part" of the Super Bowl. However, the rapper is not crumbling under the pressure, letting it be known he won't say sorry.
This is true. When checking Lovato, Wale never degraded the singer, even taking the high road when Demi suggested this was stemming from an unanswered direct message.
"Still ain't gon disrespect you, still praying for you Demi," Wale said. "Glad you seen my old tweets. Hopefully you seen the ones providing comfort and prayer when you were down. I don't kick people when they down."
Because of this, Wale will not let the stans or internet backlash make him apologize for something that never happened.
