Lil Wayne has a history of making controversial statements about race and police brutality, so it was no big surprise he said some provocative things about the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minnesota police.


"I think when we see these situations, I think we also have to understand that we have to get very specific. ... And what I mean by that is we have to stop viewing it with such a broad view, meaning we have to stop placing the blame on the whole force and the whole everybody or a certain race or everybody with a badge," Wayne said during a discussion with Fat Joe. "We have to actually get into who that person is. And if we want to place the blame on anybody, it should be ourselves for not doing more than what we think we're doing."

Wayne also criticized those who think Tweeting something is taking action.

"Some people put a tweet out and they think they did something. Some people wear a shirt and they think they did something," Wayne explained. "What you gonna do after that? Did you actually help the person? Did you actually help the family? Did you actually go out there and do something? So, if I ain't about to do all that, then I ain't about to do nothing. I'll pray for ya."

Atlanta star Lakeith Stanfield was among those who don't want to hear it from Wayne.

"Wayne STFU," he typed under a vintage photo of police protests.

Here's some more reaction.
