T.I. Apologizes For His Comment About Women Running For President


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.
