Early Wednesday morning (1/24/18) Vulture ran an article with Erykah Badu that found the Queen of Neo-Soul defending Adolph Hitler, while sharing other unpopular opinions. So after the back-lash erupted on Twitter, Miss Badu went on Twitter to defend herself. She began with, “What a world” before responding to her condemnation by “Black & Jewish Twitter.”

“Say what u must,” Badu wrote. “Dialogue is cool . I invite it. But please do me a favor if you can , Black & Jewish Twitter, just don’t use the word ‘problematic’ any more. Y’all using that too much .. oh and read the article.”

She also explained why she hates the word “problematic” when someone accused her comments of being “of the ego.”

“I hate when people use the word ‘problematic,’” Badu wrote. “I think it’s a word dummy’s use. Not saying you are a dummy I’m just saying.”

When a fan asked Badu what happened, her response was, “Nothin. I was just using my own brain again. I know it’s against the rules. I know I know.”

Erykah Badu, who owns the fact that her opinions aren’t always popular, hosted the 2017 BET Soul Train Awards last November where she took a knee in honor of Colin Kaepernick. While her opinions are currently ruffling some feathers, Badu unapologetically has remained true to herself. And honestly when I first saw the report, I wasn’t thrilled with he statement but after knowing the person she is and re-reading what she said in the article I understand what she meant. Understanding that Miss Badu can see the Yin and Yang (Good and Bad) in anything, she wasn’t praying him for the bad and horrible things he did but saying see saw what good the man did outside of those things. Again It is not a popular opinion but It is hers and i can respect that.
