UPDATE (8/1): A day after going on a homophobic rant towards fans and trolls who criticized how he interacted with his son, 42 Dugg is not only apologizing but vowing to never share his family on social media again.
“It never be my intentions to offend anybody even when I’m offended so for that I am sorry,” he began. “I’m Ah very private person when it come to personal shit such as my son or my family in general. People tell me I need to take more pictures or you know let my fans see something about me other the music.”
He added, “For y’all to take that moment and make it what y’all did just reminded me of why I keep my family private,” he added. “I will not be showing my son or any of my family on this Shit again y’all lost that privilege this for me to promote my music and that’s what I’m gone use it fr nothing more nothing less.”
ORIGINAL STORY: 42 Dugg is back in the news but it isn’t for misheard lyrics or some manner of criminal activity. Instead, a video posted by the Detroit rapper featuring his son has Twitter ready to call Child Protective Services.
Dugg, 25, has a post up on Instagram celebrating the third birthday of his little man and it’s clear he loves that boy as a proud father should. However, one particular video had social media in its clutches as it showed the Free Dem Boyz star hugging and playfully kissing his son but using a bit more tongue than most would in that situation. Some users found the display a bit over the top and there is a general refrain of confusion from the masses.
Still, and the end of it all, it’s a father and son having a little fun with his baby boy so the reactions on Twitter might be a touch overblown, even if the act inspired the flurry of Twitter responses isn’t something you see on the daily.
Because 42 Dugg’s son is just three years of age, we won’t share the now-viral video. Do your Googles, weirdos.
Instead, keep scrolling to see the reactions from Twitter.
