On the latest episode of their fresh VICELAND series Desus & Mero, Desus Nice and Kid Mero held nothing back when going in on Wayne's claims of not feeling "connected" to the movement. "What the fuck are you talking about?" Desus said, noting that the "F" in Weezy F. Baby most likely stands for flip-flop. "Lil Wayne went on Nightline. Did not know that Nightline still came on. Also, who at Nightline was like, 'We're going to talk about Black Lives Matter, let's get Lil Wayne.'"
According to Mero, people shouldn't really be taking Wayne's opinions on pressing societal seriously. "He wakes up in the morning, he drinks cough syrup for breakfast, he eats 45 Xanax a day, he smokes weed every 20 minutes," Mero noted, before the two reminded viewers of Wayne's previous pro-Black Lives Matter comments at a recent Tidal event:
Wayne ultimately apologized for his controversial Nightline remarks in a statement to TMZ. "When the reporter began asking me questions about my daughter being labeled a bitch and a hoe, I got agitated," Wayne said Wednesday. "From there, there was no thought put into her questions and my responses. Apologies to anyone who was offended."
