Comments Off on City Girls’ JT Faces Backlash After Insensitive Tweet As People Remember 9/11
Miami rapper JT is under fire again after a recent tweet.
As those in the US geared up to commemorate the 21st anniversary of the tragic events of 9/11, the “Take Yo Man” artist had Chief Keef lyrics in mind.
“Im sliding through New York, Finna go & blow New Jersey up!!!!”
As common as it is to tweet out lyrics, many fans found it strange due to the context and timing.
The comments were flooded with fans questioning the purpose of the tweet.
One fan asked: “on 9/11?”
Another user insinuated that the tweet shouldn’t have been made.
“JT this ain’t it at all NGL.”
Some fans defended the “Act Up” artist, stating it wasn’t insensitive since the tweet refers to “blowing up Jersey” and not New York.
“Y’all saying “on 9/11?” like the twin towers was in jersey. Pls ok?”
Rather it was a case of bad timing or not, it definitely raised the eyebrows of many Twitter users.
Birth Of A Nation
It is no surprise JT is a fan of Chief Keef’s lyrics.
Almighty Sosa first hit the rap scene at 16 and has made contributions to the culture that remain relevant today.
Popular terms that are often used would not exist had it not been for Chief Keef’s creativity.
