Tiny defends T.I
T.I.’s wife, Tiny, has come to the defense of her husband after he was criticized over comments he made regarding Hilary Clinton.
The Swagger Like Us rapper had said he couldn’t vote for a female president because they made rash, emotional judgments.
“Not to be sexist but, I can’t vote for the leader of the free world to be a woman,” he said. “Just because, every other position that exists, I think a woman could do well. But the president? It’s kinda like, I just know that women make rash decisions emotionally – they make very permanent, cemented decisions – and then later, it’s kind of like it didn’t happen, or they didn’t mean for it to happen.”
“And I sure would hate to just set off a nuke. [Other leaders] will not be able to negotiate the right kinds of foreign policy; the world ain’t ready yet. I think you might be able to the Lochness Monster elected before you could get a woman.”
The rapper has already apologized on his Twitter page, and Tiny defended him, saying he was “joking”.
“I know him and I know the man he is but I think the comments were distasteful,” Tiny said. “He believes the man should take care of a woman but I think he was joking.”
“He might have been thinking about me at the time. He Just wants to be the man and take care of everything, women should be treated like princesses. But a woman has the right to do as much as a man!”
