First, Murda Mook and now Daniel Caesar.
Let the cancellation begin. Daniel Caesar decided to hop on Instagram Live last night and share his unnecessary thoughts and opinions on the YesJulz incident. Julz is a social influencer who was also slammed for calling out Scottie Beam, Karen Civil, and Joe Budden. Because of Julz’s racially insensitive comments of the past, her statements were not taken lightly. Daniel Caesar decided to chime in.
The Grammy Award-winning crooner starts his IG live video by asking, “Why are we being so mean to Julz?”
“Why are we being so mean to white people right now? It’s a serious question. Why is that we’re allowed to be disrespectful and rude to everybody else, and when anybody returns that energy to us…..I don’t want to be treated like I can’t take a joke!” People immediately began flooding the comments section of his Instagram Live with reasons why they didn’t agree with his opinion, to which he responded, “White people have been mean to us in the past, yeah, but what are you going to do about it? Tell me what you’re going to do about that? There’s no answer, other than creating and understanding and keeping it moving. You have to bridge that gap.”
Although the “Best Part” singer admits to being drunk during the rant, it is not an excuse. Drunken words, speak sober thoughts. Caesar will remain unapologetic about his comments. He urges black people to stop playing the victim because it is not a means of income.
“I think you guys are wrong and I think I’m right. You can cancel me. I’m making music right now and you guys don’t have to listen to it.”
PSA to ALL Black Men: Please stop capping for YesJulz.

Table full of boys knowing he was drunk and not one of them snatched his phone and ended this monstrosity. You need new friends, @DanielCaesar. This is on top of all the ignorant things you said. https://t.co/fqPYSYCUSl
