Recently, we compiled a list of the wild, tone deaf, antiBlack and outright ridiculous things Black celebrities had been saying in the midst of the protests surrounding the murder of George Floyd and other Black victims of police brutality.
At the time of publication, rapper Trina hadn’t said what she did to cause an uproar in the community.A
As we reported earlier, in a discussion with Trick Daddy, Trina said, “They need to make the curfew at 6 pm to 6 am, that’s how I feel.
As you can imagine, likening Black people to animals—a trope that has frequently been employed by White people—didn’t land well with the Black community.
“Me, in my Trina’s world, I’m automatically speaking for Black people.
That’s who I’m speaking for and I’m not going to say Black people are animals.
