Earlier today (Wednesday, 04-0-13), as we reported, Wayne sent a letter to the Tills … to “acknowledge” the hurt he caused the family when he compared Emmett’s violent death with the violent way he has sex with women.
You may have noticed that nowhere in his missive did he atone for what he did. It seems the Till family noticed that as well.
Now, according to TMZ, Airickca Gordon-Taylor, Executive Director of the Mamie Till Mobley Memorial Foundation and a Till Family Representative, says the family does not view the letter as a formal apology.
“While it’s commendable that he has vowed to respect the legacy of Emmett Till and his memory to ‘not use or reference Emmett Till or the Till family in his music,’ this statement falls short of an apology, as none is mentioned.”
The ball it seems is back in Lil Wayne’s court.
