According to TMZ, the Hollywood producer is standing by what he said and refuses to apologize for it. Allen detailed his motivation behind not apologizing during an appearance on “TMZ Live.” In his eyes, the Obama diss was intentionally harsh because “Black life in America is harsh!”
As for why he went public with his criticism, Allen says it stems from having a face-to-face chat with Obama at a $40k/plate dinner. It was there that Allen brought his concerns to the commander-in-chief. From what Allen said, he never heard back from Obama.
Apparently the president wasn’t the only person Allen has a beef with. Allen went on to issue a warning to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton as he told her to address the concerns of black people or “”you’re not gonna get the black vote.”
