Kodak Black Walks Out Of Ebro Interview After Sexual Assault Question
Kodak Black lost his patience with the Hot 97 host.
Tempers flared during a recent interview between Kodak Black and Ebro, prompting the Dying To Live rapper to cut the conversation short. Though Kodak originally stopped by to discuss his upcoming album, the Hot 97 host closed the conversation by addressing Black's upcoming sexual assault trial.
"It's good to meet you man," starts Ebro, clearly sitting on the inevitable bomb drop. "Looking at all your cases man, and everything you've been through, and I know the recent one is very sensitive. With respect to everybody involved in that case, and we can't get into details, but we take sexual assault very serious. We can't get into details, but we hope to have you back so we can have a deeper conversation about that, because it's a serious topic. We're hearing these stories a lot."
The speech prompts an uncomfortable silence from Kodak, who appears visibly angered by Ebro's words. His seething does not go unnoticed, as Ebro, somewhat aggressively, observes that Kodak seems upset that it was brought up at all. The subsequent cuts to Rosenberg and Laura are unintentionally comedic in their awkwardness, though Kodak is far from amused. Ebro merely stares on, challenging the rapper.
"I feel like," says Kodak, shifting uncomfortably. "Sometimes when n***s like me going through shit, ya'll be entertained by bullshit. Change the subject or I finna walk out." Rosenberg attempts to keep the peace, but Ebro's mind is made up. "We don't have to talk about nothing else," says Ebro. "We can be done right here." Kodak agrees, and proceeds to walk out. As they cut to "commercial," Ebro can be heard declaring "you won't tell me what to talk about on my show."
While not quite Birdman on Breakfast Club levels of awkwardness, it certainly toes the line. Ebro took to Twitter to address the debacle, in a series of tweets as seen below.
