Rapper T.I. was asked about his thoughts on Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential run while on Sirius XM’s DJ Whoo Kid show and this is what he had to say:
Not to be sexist but, I can’t vote for the leader of the free world to be a woman. Just because, every other position that exists, I think a woman could do well. But the president? It’s kinda like, I just know that women make rash decisions emotionally — they make very permanent, cemented decisions — and then later, it’s kind of like it didn’t happen, or they didn’t mean for it to happen. And I sure would hate to just set off a nuke. [Other leaders] will not be able to negotiate the right kinds of foreign policy; the world ain’t ready yet. I think you might be able to the Lochness Monster elected before you could [get a woman].
T.I. then took to his twitter account to offer an apology:
My comments about women running for president were unequivocally insensitive and wrong. I sincerely apologize to everyone I offended.
