J Cole Is Ashamed Of The ‘Jodeci Freestyle’ Track
The rapper J Cole had to apologize for using ignorant lyrics in his songs.
The ‘Jodeci Freestyle’ track, the result of the collaboration that the musician had with Drake, uses derogatory terms when referring to people with autism.
The autism organization considered the lyrics offensive and thus the rapper felt obliged to apologize:
"I realized right away that what I said was wrong. I was instantly embarrassed that I would be ignorant enough to say something so hurtful. What makes the crime worse is that I should have known better," he wrote.
"To the entire Autism community who expressed outrage, I'm moved and inspired by your passion, and I'm amazed at how strong you are as a unit. I have now read stories online from parents about their struggles and triumphs with raising an Autistic child and I admire how incredibly strong you have to be to do so. It's touching. It also makes what I said even more embarrassing for me. I feel real shame. You have every right to be angry. (sic)"
