Michelle Walker Apologizes to Young Dolph’s Family for Leaking DM
Michelle Walker apologized to Young Dolph’s family for having leaked her DM with the late rapper.
She uploaded an apology video to her Instagram where she explained it wasn’t her intention to disrespect the rapper’s family or fans who found her actions unsavory.
Walker, who goes by michellewalker000 on Instagram, started by saying she had been getting a lot of hate comments.
The messages I’ve been getting is ridiculous. I’m getting hate comments, people telling me I should die. All types of shit… I’m going to say sorry to the family or to whoever I hurt. That was never my intention. That was really a friend of mine, I was hurt.
Walker had previously leaked a snap of her DM with Young Dolph, and people didn’t take kindly to her actions. Many called her out for chasing clout using his death.
During her Instagram Live, people began leaving comments saying her actions of posting a screenshot of her DM with the late rapper were disrespectful to his family and that she should take it down.
Walker lost her cool during the session, saying she didn’t understand how she was disrespecting his family. She also added that she had known him for a long time, before his daughter was born.
I’m not. How am I disrespecting his family? How? I did not say that was my *******, that was my boyfriend… You can clearly see, I’ve been knowing him before his daughter was even born. Before y’all even knew who Dolph was, I’ve been knowing him. So how have I been disrespecting him? I even got his baby mother’s number on my phone.
