Trina has issued an apology to fans after referring to protesters as “animals” earlier this week on her morning radio show with Trick Daddy on Miami’s 99 Jamz. She begins by saying that she is sorry, and her rant was fueled by the love she has for her city.
“I just want to say I apologize sincerely to everybody I offended by what I said,” Trina said. “I spoke passionately about people destroying our community here in Miami, Florida, Dade County, Liberty City, the inner cities. I’m not trying to take away anything from anyone or anybody that was abused from the police. And I can see where that was insensitive.”
She then said that she wasn’t referring to the people out protesting as animals.
“Me and my Trina’s world I’m automatically speaking for black people and I’m not gonna say ‘Hey black people are animals,'” Trina said. “I didn’t say all of my people. I’m not talking about you, not the protestors, the people trying to make change. Not a store, not nothing, nobody’s fancy car, I’m just speaking from where I felt, things that I saw. I would never say that or call black people animals. That’s not who I am.”
As previously reported the internet came together to cancel Trina after she made comments about the rioting that has been taking place throughout Miami.
“They need to make the curfew at 6 p.m.,” Trina said when the topic came up earlier this week. “Keep everybody off the street, these animals off the streets, that are running around in Miami-Dade County acting like they have escaped from a zoo. Lock them up at 5 p.m. so the streets can be nice and clean, that’s how I feel.”
She also that protesting would not bring back any lives and proceed to bring up black on black crime.
“We can’t bring back nobody lives that have been taken away, whether it’s from the police or the hands of another civilian. We cannot bring them back. You cannot pump life back into them at all. I can’t bring back my little brother’s life, his life was taken by the hands of a man, a black man.”
Trina also added that she is safe from police brutality because she has her license and registration.
