Lil Wayne knew his Nightline interview would be so controversial that he and his camp repeatedly demanded that ABC News pull the plug on the entire thing.
Wayne faced criticism for the interview after he denounced the Black Lives Matter movement, saying, “I don’t feel connected to a damn thing that ain’t got nothing to do with me.”
According to reports, Weezy’s team sent the network several emails insisting that the interview never air on television, but ABC never responded. Wayne’s reason for nixing the segment was that interviewer Linsey Davis asked him questions that were not pre-approved, including one about his daughter.
But sources from the network say that Wayne’s team was never given a pre-approved list of questions from them. The rapper reportedly fired his publicist when the interview ultimately aired. A source revealed that his publicist may have even been fired the night after the interview was taped.
Weezy F. Baby and the F is for “fired.”
