As reported by HotNewHipHop, the video in question shows Kodak making it rain, then allegedly stop tipping when a darker-skinned dancer gets onstage.
“I went to booby trap last night...Kodak Black pulled up,” the TikTok user wrote. “He was so lit turning up all night on every girl. He spent so much money...until!!! A dark skin girl got on stage. He completely stopped tipping. She was so entertaining. … I never believed in colorism until tonight…it’s real I felt bad for her. I can tell it killed her spirit she just turned down..darkskin girls have it hard….sheeesh and it be from our own people.”
It didn’t take long for Kodak to take to social media and defend his actions.
“Whoever recorded that lame af,” he wrote. “I threw money on all kinda women. My money don’t run out in dat club. Everybody love me there. I love dark women. They queens wit dey black ass. Faxtz tho they beautiful.”
It isn’t the first time Kodak has had to deny colorism accusations, having made controversial comments about Black women in the past. In 2017, the Pompano Beach MC caused a stir on social media after saying he prefers light-skinned women. During a subsequent interview with ChaneyTV at Master P’s charity basketball game, he defended his comments.
Referencing a hypothetical person who made similar claims, Kodak said that “if he prefers skinny women more than a chubbier or heavy-set woman, if he can say that and nobody can get mad him, I just said I don’t like women with my complexion.”
He continued, “I love African American women, but I just don’t like my skin complexion. We too gutter, light-skinned women more sensitive.”
