Recently, Saweetie came under fire after an old Livestream with Too $hort made its way back to social media. In the clip, the two artists talked about biracial or multiracial people, and Too $hort revealed that he hasn’t fallen in love with a woman that has not been mixed. He said because there are so many mixed people in the Bay, it formed his attraction to biracial women.
Saweetie could be seen laughing during that part of the video and after the clip resurfaced, many people took to social media and blasted her for her reaction. The rapper saw the backlash she was receiving and uploaded the remainder of the video where she told Too $hort that Black women are “beautiful on they own,” without having to be mixed with any other race.
“This shouldn’t even be a conversation but thank you for having my back baby. I’m going back to my shoot [peace sign emoji] Y’all have a Jesus blessed day,” she tweeted.
Many of Saweetie’s fans came to her defence as well as they also made it clear Saweetie was taken out of context and their favorite rapper could never be accused of colorism.
