Politician Furious Lil Wayne Doesn't Like New York City

New Yorkers aren’t often thought of as among the more easily offended, but apparently, when it comes to the city they share, wild overreactions are good politics. New York State Senator Malcolm Smith has announced he’s holding a press conference this evening to condemn Lil Wayne for saying he doesn’t like New York. Yup. You did not read that sentence incorrectly. A politician has called a press conference to demand an apology from a musician because of his negative opinion concerning the biggest city in the United States.

Lil Wayne made his allegedly offensive comment during an interview with MTV News on Monday. You can take a look at the words State Senator Smith finds so horrifying below…
"Flat out: I don't like New York."

If you take it from Sen Smith, Lil Wayne should have to like New York City because it’s “the birthplace of the Hip Hop music movement” and a location filled with millions who “listen to his music every day.” Some of them are reportedly “outraged” by his words, and consequently, the politician feels it’s his job to make the situation right.

Bashing a city might not be the best way to please a fanbase, but it’s obnoxious to think more than a slither of New Yorkers actually give a shit what one rapper thinks about their city. That’s what actually makes New York City so great. It’s not because some politician can force an apology out of a celebrity. It’s because millions of people think, “this city I live in is awesome, and if you’re stupid enough to disagree, that’s your loss.”
