Da Brat has faced backlash for comments she made during a recent interview. On an appearance of Tamron Hall, the musician and her wife Judy Dupart talked about their difficulties finding a sperm donor. However, Da Brat raised a few eyebrows when talking about the final choices available to them.
"And that [dude] looked like Jiminy Cricket. I was like, 'I'm sorry but that wasn't gonna be my choice.," Brat said of the remaining Black donor. She continued, "Because we didn't have a lot to choose from, he definitely wasn't Black. But I think we did a great job with picking. He's handsome, he's tall and I think he's going to look beautiful with my wife's egg." Da Brat has now issued an additional statement on the interview.
Da Brat Says Comments Taken Out Of Context
"I didn't think it would be offensive to anybody. I cracked jokes about almost everybody that I saw, that one just happened to make it in the show," Da Brat said. "I wasn't trying to be mean or say anything negative about Black people. I guess they thought it was funny and I didn't think it would bother anybody or else I would have taken it out." She continued, "I had no idea people were going to be so offended, but I meant no harm whatsoever," the rapper said. "People take things and run with it. I'm like, 'What?' People who know me know that I didn't mean any harm."
She continued, "We were looking for a Black donor. We're Black, we wanted a Black donor. So it was just misconstrued and taken way out of context." However, she also apologized wholeheartedly for her comments. "If I offended anybody, I do apologize. But it was a joke between me and my wife and the doctor, like, we joke like that, we play around so it wasn't meant to be offensive in any way."
