The 35-year-old rapper said he couldn’t vote for a female president because “it’s kinda like, I just know that women make rash decisions emotionally — they make very permanent, cemented decisions — and then later, it’s kind of like it didn’t happen, or they didn’t mean for it to happen.” He ended by pointing out that it would be easier to get the Loch Ness Monster elected.
T.I. has since apologized, but Twitter hasn’t quite forgiven or forgotten. See celebrity reactions to T.I.’s statement below:
Thanks TI, I was quite offended, lucky for you I’m not having an emotional day or I might have sent a nuke your way– https://t.co/gtArTvA6qK

Dear T.I. please refrain from discussing politics, stick to rapping. You’re good at that. #Hillary2016

I’m not offended, I’m just disappointed you feel that way about women. It’s beneath your brilliant mind, frankly. https://t.co/4kWDO4By0n

And a little tip for Mr. @Tip: nothing great has ever come after the phrase “Not to be sexist, but…”. Ever. Ever ever.

Pharrell says “it’s time” for a woman to be President; T.I. said the opposite. And now we need Robin Thicke or Marvin’s ghost to tiebreak.
