Joe Budden Draws Flak With Picture of Sikh Man at Airport

No one ever said Joe Budden was the sharpest tool in the shed, and his recent social media antics proved just that. Recently, Budden posted a picture of an elderly Sikh man at an airport on Instagram, with the caption “Not on my watch Homeboy!”

Apparently Budden was stereotyping the Sikh as a terrorist because of the turban he was wearing. But of course Budden was schooled by others:




Eventually Budden deleted the offending photo, and issued an apology:



In a never-ending world of celebrities saying stupid sh*t and being publicly called to task, you’d think by now they would be on their Ps and Qs. Social media and celebrities are like train wrecks, you can’t help but to look at it.

    You know what? Joe Budden is so unimportant that I initially thought this post was about someone else. At a quick eye scan, I thought the post said “Joe Biden”.

    Anyway, Budden is dead wrong, and this is indeed racist/racial profiling.

    He would probably be the first one on twitter crying if someone racially profiled him.

    Does he have a new cd coming out or something, because lately half of these faux pas appear to be intentional in order to promote some new tv or music product. He knows that he can do almost anything as long as he follows the faux pas with an apology. This asking for forgiveness instead of doing sensitivity checks/asking for permission first thing seems to be the norm now.

    Smh idiot. Out here making us look bad. His picture and words are inflammatory, prejudiced and discriminatory. He should be ashamed. We need to quit crying racism only when it happens to us but we should also uplift and refrain from bashing other cultures. He’s ignorant. Yuck.

    What the hell is wrong with Black people?

    How can Joe Budden seriously defend his actions? Being a Black man in America where Black men are being hunted and killed at an all time rate by whites because of stereotypes? He thinks stereotypes are funny? Where do stereotypes come from, if not from racism?

    He’s too stupid for me.
