Fat Joe Speaks Out, After Being Accused Of Anti-Racism Criticism For Referring To COVID As “Wuhan Virus” On Recent Verse

Fat Joe is facing some criticism, as some accuse him of making an anti-Asian comment on a recent verse.

The particular song is featured on Benny The Butcher sequel to The Plugs I Met. On the track “Talkin’ Back,” Fat Joe raps,

“Track me in and out of court, Harvey Weinstein / Threw that white up in the pot, gave ’em pipe dreams / And watch it spread like the Wuhan virus / Do ’em dirty for the low like Wu-Tang ’Sirus (ODB).”

Both the mention of Harvey Weinstein and referring to the coronavirus as “Wuhan virus” was met with some backlash.

Fat Joe took to Twitter, responding to the backlash writing:

I’ll adress [sic] the Benny verse i did that verse a year ago when the news was calling it the wuhan virus before they called it COVID i support and love all my asian brothers and sisters never hate
