Kodak Black Defends Viral Video of Him Grabbing His Mother’s Butt
Rapper Kodak Black has made headlines after a questionable video made rounds online.
Less than two weeks ago, Kodak went viral after video footage began circulating online of him groping his mother's backside and trying to kiss her on the lips.
In the clip, Kodak and his mother Marcelene Simmons were dancing to Rutshelle Guillaumes' 'M Pa La Ankò' at a birthday celebration reportedly for the controversial rapper's brother, John Wick. Kodak was seen twirling his mom as they slow danced mixed with a two-step.
However, the sweet dance suddenly turned questionable when Kodak grabbed his mother's rear end and attempted to kiss her near her lips. The mother and son shared laughter afterward, but then Kodak tried to kiss her on the lips again.
At the end of the clip, the mother walked away, but Kodak tried to reach for her butt again.
Social media users immediately took to Twitter and chimed in with many claiming that the South Florida rhymer's actions were "disgusting." One person tweeted his actions were not normal and that he needed help.
But on October 23, the rapper spoke up about his actions.
Kodak Black Defends His Actions
Kodak was upset at his fans for insinuating that anything unpleasant was happening between him and his mother.
He went on Instagram Live and lambasted his fans for questioning his relationship with his mother. He claimed that some of them did not even stay in touch with their own woman or call up their mother or spend time at home with them.
He continued saying that they needed to stop expecting women to love them when they did not even love their mothers. Kodak then defended his actions.
“I grabbed my mama because I treat my mama like my lady. That’s my queen…So what? She isn’t trippin’. I don’t [expletive] my mama. We aren’t doing any crazy [stuffs]…I grab her like I try to make her feel really beautiful.
He added he wanted to let his mother know that he was crazy in love with her.
Kodak Black's Mental Health Problems
Although fans are not convinced that his actions were out of love, it wasn't long ago that the rapper had fans worried about his mental health.
The rapper had tweeted some troubling message. In the first tweet, he mentioned he was lonely and depressed and that no one cared about him. He wished he was never famous and iterated that he wanted to "go back to the start."
In a second tweet, he said, "Sitting In My Room Crying Feel Like Killing Myself."
He then deactivated his social media accounts, but shortly after, he reactivated them and apologized to his fans for making them worried. He shared a lengthy message, reassuring his followers that he was doing better.
