Rick Ross Issues Apology After Sexist Comments About Not Hiring Female Rappers

American rap star, Rick Ross has apologized for the sexist remarks he made during a recent interview on New York City radio show “The Breakfast Club” regarding female employees. Recall that during the chat he revealed the reasons why he cannot hire black women to his hip-hop record label, Maybach Music Group since its founding in 2009.However after the rants, social media went haywire, as people began to slam and call out the rapper. To our amazement, Ross has issued a statement denouncing his comments. “I want to address an insensitive comment I made on a very sensitive issue, especially in a minority dominated industry like hip-hop,” he wrote. “My entire empire’s backbone is led by 2 of the strongest people I know and they happen to be women, my mother and sister. The operations wouldn’t run without them and I have the highest regard and respect for women in this industry. I have a daughter myself, my most cherished gift in the world.“My comment is not reflection of my beliefs on the issue,” he added. “A mistake I regret. I hope to use my mistake, my platform and the community to create positive discussion to implement change on a very important issue. respect for the ones who stand up to say hey that isn’t right. Now it’s time to accept responsibility and all do better. I look forward to continue working with & supporting female artists.” This isn’t rick ross’ fist time to be caught up in a controversy as he has been accused of exalting rape lyrics before.Credit: Getty
