As we previously reported, Wale got into an altercation with a fan, who was taunting him via Twitter, during last nights WWE Raw event in Washington D.C. Now, Wale speaks out on the incident.
During a recent interview with MTV, Wale spoke on getting into a fight last night during a D.C. WWE event with a trash talking fan, who he noticed was tweeting from the same location as him, and not some location on the other side of the country where most Twitter haters feel safe.
“It was just a dude that was like, ‘I’mma kick your ass. I better not see you here.”
The MMG rapper adds:
“I was like, ‘Yo, is this you?’ And one thing lead to another, and I just kind of mushed him a little bit. Honestly, if there wasn’t kids right there, it would have went a little bit differently, but I just wanted to be conscious of them. It’s not to say it was the right decision. But in the moment, you know.”
“People get it misconstrued. “Like, ‘Oh, you’re so butt-hurt.’ It’s not even that. I come from a place where when we was at the lunch table and n—as was jonesing on each other, I’ll respond. I’m gonna have something better, too. And now we’ve come to a place where, if you respond, you’re a bitch. Somebody could say ‘F— you’ 100 times, if I say ‘f— you’ back, then I’m a bitch. And people be like, ‘You’re famous, you shouldn’t care.’ “
As he wrapped things up, Wale stated:
“I just don’t understand, [in] society, why we champion people like that in this day and age. I remember when people used to admire real people that stand behind their words or are stand-up men. I come from that. I had to address him as such. It wasn’t nothing really serious.”
