T.I. is under fire for saying he won't vote for a woman for President because he thinks they are too emotional.
Pharrell Williams, Katy Perry and Christina Aguilera have all recently shared their support towards Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Someone who won't be casting their vote for Clinton? T.I.. He believes women make rash decisions under stress.
He said today (Oct. 13) during a sit-down with DJ Whoo Kid: “not to be sexist but, I can’t vote for the leader of the free world to be a woman,” he said. “Just because, every other position that exists, I think a woman could do well. But the president? It’s kinda like, I just know that women make rash decisions emotionally – they make very permanent, cemented decisions – and then later, it’s kind of like it didn’t happen, or they didn’t mean for it to happen. And I sure would hate to just set off a nuke. [Other leaders] will not be able to negotiate the right kinds of foreign policy; the world ain’t ready yet. I think you might be able to the Lochness Monster elected before you could [get a woman].”
Tip also had a few words for Donald Trump. As a business man he approves, noting Trump could be “beneficial” if he is “sincerely concerned about the economy of America.” He also added he could not support Trump because of his racist remarks.
“He’s interesting and I feel his the best showman of them all. And I do feel that if he is sincerely concerned about the economy of America and the working public, he would be the best person to flip the money that we have […] But you know, his racist remarks and all of his off-color statements and all that s**t it makes it impossible to be completely supportive of him. But just knowing what he’s done for business for himself, if he intends to do that for America, it would be beneficial. But I can’t cash no vote for him.”
T.I. (or his PR) since apologized for his remarks, but too little too late. He said: "My comments about women running for president were unequivocally insensitive and wrong. I sincerely apologize to everyone I offended."
