After he told Jet Magazine (and posted by Bossip) that he doesn’t think the president has been ‘gangsta’ enough, his comments sent the blogosphere to a whole ‘nother level.
So of course he needed to clarify his ‘careless’ words. Here’s what he posted via TwitLonger.com:
“I realize that when speaking to reporters who are looking for the juiciest comments to print, a word like gangster in connection with a black president uttered by a black celebrity can almost be too much to resist,” the Oscar-nominated actor wrote. “I say this not in defense but to offer some perspective. I believe I used the word gangster and I meant it. But I wasn’t talking about pants sagging and forties and ‘hoes’ or any of that other nonsense and I find it hard to believe that that is what some people thought I was saying. I was talking about wish fulfillment; my own and my desire to witness something more than I had.”
He continued explaining that he was true blue to the President Obama’s 2008 campaign and will gladly support him in the coming election, however he has not seen the anticipated and promised changes he (Obama) afore preached about before he won the position.
