“I don’t feel connected to a damn thing that ain’t got nothin’ to do with me,” Wayne said when asked about the movement on Nightline. “I’m a young black rich motherf—er.” Wayne later apologized for the comments, claiming an earlier question regarding his daughter had flustered him.

“I think it’s a very ignorant, selfish & isolated position to take,” Mensa wrote. “Because even someone as big as Wayne is just a black man minus all of his ice and fame, and can be treated the same way.”

Later in the AMA he elaborated on his own feelings on the movement.

“I think the Black Lives Matter movement is incredibly positive. It’s opened a lot of discussion and discourse about the problems in our society and communities and that’s important,” he wrote.
