French Montana attends the GQ Men of the Year party at Chateau Marmont on Dec. 8, 2016 in Los Angeles.

UPDATE: After this story was published, French Montana took to Twitter to defend his comments.

"My mother is african queen and I was married to a beautiful black queen All I did was defend myself if I affended anybody I apologize," he tweeted. "But this is a perfect example of even when u defending yourself and minding your Business social media would drag your name thru the mud [??] But on another note #STAYWOKE"

Being a celebrity in the age of social media is tough. You can be showered with love simply for existing and then receive an abundance of hate because someone doesn’t like you. So to remain balanced, it’s understood why a lot of celebs don’t pay too much attention to their mentions or comments.

However, French Montana may have had some downtime Wednesday night (April 5) and decided to search his name. User @artdecoxxx isn’t a fan of the Coke Boy and because of America’s First Amendment right, voiced that on Twitter.

Montana, real name Karim Kharbouch, got wind of the tweet and decided to respond in what many believe was in an unsavory fashion.

There are many who have taken Montana’s side claiming it was the young woman who started the quarrel. Yet, user @artdecoxxx tweeted if you can’t take the good with the bad, then why be in the spotlight?

A debate about race then erupted with many insisting Montana doesn’t have the right to disrespect a black woman about her hair. Montana replied saying it isn’t about race and if it were, he’d be well within his right being as though he was born in Morocco.

In addition, French Montana's Instagram feed has been wiped out as of press time. 

Reps for French Montana did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
