Trina has attempted to backtrack on her comments referring to protesters as "animals" and said she hoped for the Miami-Dade County curfew to be strictly enforced.
She returned to Trick Daddy's 99 Jamz Radio on Thursday to clarify what she meant. "Me, in my Trina's world, I'm automatically speaking for black people," Trina said. "I am black people, that's who I'm speaking for, so I'm not gonna say 'black people are animals.' I'm not talking to the protestors or those that are trying to make change. "
She went on to say that through talking to others she learned it's a process to enact change. "And this is why, the day after when we spoke to the commissioner, I said to Trick, 'Well, I learned a lot more about what's really happening,' because I'm trying to get what's the solution, what is the answer to everything that is happening."
Trina also addressed calling protestors "animals" directly. "I would never say that, or call black people animals or any names. I am a black person, I must be an animal, I must be this same person. I mean, that's not who I am."
"They need to make the curfew at 6 p.m.," Trina said when the topic came up earlier this week. "Keep everybody off the street, these animals off the streets, that are running around in Miami-Dade County acting like they have escaped from a zoo. Lock them up at 5 p.m. so the streets can be nice and clean, that's how I feel."
This new statement is definitely not an apology, and many on Twitter felt the same, voicing their discontent with Trina on the timeline.
