Vic Mensa is owning up to dissing the late XXXTentacion during a freestyle at the BET Awards, which were taped Saturday night in XXX's hometown of Miami.

XXX's mom was in the crowd, and Mensa says he feels bad about that. But he is in no way apologizing for his bars, and in a web video he makes it clear that he thinks XXX was a scumbag for how he treated women and that he thinks those who promote him and other abusers are giving Hip Hop a black eye.

"Recently, I did a freestyle for the BET Awards Cypher addressing and condemning rappers who unabashedly abuse women and those who stand up for them and even call them legends. I stand behind those statements. It was recorded weeks ago and I had no idea a grieving mother would be in the audience to honor her lost son. I never intended to disrespect her, and offer my deepest condolences to her lose at the hands of gun violence. However, I vehemently reject the trend in Hip Hop of championing abusers, and I will not hold my tongue about it. I don't give a fuck about getting attention. I care about bringing awareness and holding people accountable for their actions."

What do you think about what Mensa said?
