Lil Wayne apologizes to family of Emmett Till while performing ‘Karate Chop’


Lil Wayne apologized to the family of Emmett Till while performing “Karate Chop” before thousands at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee.

According to a report by Karen Civil, instead of rapping the controversial lyric, Lil Wayne switched the rap and said, “I apologize to the family of Emmett Till,”

Lil Wayne issued a written apology earlier in the year, but it appeared to be written by a publicist and never came across as sincere to many. Because of the controversial lyric, Mountain Dew dropped Lil Wayne as a spokesperson for their brand.
