Killer Mike, half the duo of Run the Jewels, took to social media to apologize for the timing of his pro gun interview. Mike sat down with NRA TV to talk about his stance on guns and the organization aired it on the same day as students across the country marched to get better gun control laws to end school shootings. In a series of videos, Mike apologizes for the timing of the interview though not really taking back his pro gun stance.
He says, “That interview was used a week later by NRATV to disparage a very noble campaign that I actually support,” he said. “I’m sorry, guys. I’m sorry that an interview I did about black people in this country and gun rights was used as a weapon against you guys. That was unfair to you and it was wrong, and it disparaged some very noble work you’re doing.”
Basically Mike sums up his stance as “I do support the march and I support black people owning guns. It’s possible to do both.”
Here’s Mike’s original interview with the NRA.
