People are ROASTING the singer right now.
Daniel Caesar decided to go on Instagram live and address black people specifically saying, “why are we being so mean to white people?” He also defended media personality of YesJulz who has been accused of making negative comments about black women and being a “culture vulture”.
Caesar told viewers he was “drunk as f***” during the live before continuing his statements. “That’s a serious question,” the “Best Part” singer explained. “Why is it that we’re allowed to be disrespectful and rude to everybody else and when anybody returns any type of energy to us…that’s not equality. I don’t wanna be treated like I can’t take a joke.”
The joke he was referring to was the comment made by Dave Chappelle who called him “very gay”, to which Caesar said he was offended. “I just went through that f***ing Chappelle s*** and I had to in the moment acknowledge that I was being f***ing sensitive and that I need to be able to take a joke just like everybody else. That’s what it is. People are allowed to say whatever the f*** they want. White people have been mean to us in the past. What are you gonna do about that? Tell me what you’re gonna do about that. There’s no answer other than creating understanding and keeping it moving. That’s some biblical s***. You have to bridge the gap.”
Those bold comments are getting him dragged on pretty much every social media platform and people now calling themselves former fans are saying they’re canceling him. He of course had something to say to those people as well, “I’ve said what I’ve said before and y’all tried to cancel me and I apologized like a b****. I don’t believe in that s*** because I think you guys are wrong and I’m right.”
As of now the singer hasn’t addressed the drunken rant but we’ll soon see if he stands by what he said or if he’s gonna make like T-Pain and blame it on alcohol. #YIKES! Watch a snippet of the live video belowL
