Vince Staples is coming to the defense of a Christian mother who became emotional after reading the lyrics to his “Norf Norf” song.
Over the past few days, the Internet has made a mockery out of an unnamed woman who recorded herself crying as she read the lyrics to Staples 2015 single, which she claims to have heard on the radio while driving her children to school. In the video, the mother condemns the rapper’s language, describing the track as “crap.”
The Independent spoke with the rapper on Wednesday about his feelings regarding the video, which already garnered over 800,000 views. “I don’t think it’s funny at all,” he reportedly said. “It’s not right to attack someone over their stance, their opinions, and their religion. I think that’s very immature.”
Once the interview was released, however, Staples took to Twitter to clarify his claims, blaming the writer for misquoting him.
