Joe Budden wasn’t a fan of Megan Thee Stallion’s recent interview with Gayle King.
Budden and his co-hosts also went into depth about the unfairness on Tory’s side of the argument. “He cannot speak again. So, you’re going to sit down with Gayle King… while he can’t speak…” adding, “I don’t necessarily love it.”
While there are many different media outlets to choose from, Budden questioned Meg’s choice to speak with Gayle King, saying that she should have gone to a hip-hop outlet. “Go to Hip-Hop,” he exclaimed. “There are too many hip-hop f**king outlets. Go to somebody who understands all of this sh*t, is keeping up with all this sh*t, and can provide some type of pushback if you’re trying to come off organic.”
He then went on to compare Meg’s case to Evelyn Lozado and Chad Ochocinco’s domestic violence incident, stating that “there is such a thing as victim bullying.” Continuing with his perceived similarities he said, “For years, any time [Johnson’s] name came up, [Lozada] popped up. It had nothing to do with her…it didn’t matter the rehabilitation he had done. It didn’t matter the changes that he’d made. The apologies…” Understanding that Lozado was the victim, he said, “I don’t take that away. But that’s bullying.”
