Radio personality, Angela Yee, has responded to Gucci Mane‘s claims that he’s banned from The Breakfast Club and his insulting comments targeted at Yee personally.
Speaking to Too Fab, Yee explained, “I just don’t really care. It doesn’t affect me, like, it’s not going to affect anything we have going on. I’mma just continue to do my job.” She also theorized Gucci’s comments were a publicity stunt, saying, “Every now and then, some person does something — somebody says something crazy about us and then they get a little press out of it. And then life continues.” Responding to Gucci’s claims that Yee was romantically interested in him, she said, “Just Google what he looked like in 2009 and you’ll see what I’m talking about.”
Even though Yee confirmed The Breakfast Club never banned the rapper she doesn’t believe he should appear on the show anytime soon: “If you’re going to threaten to slap a host on the show I don’t think you should be allowed in the building.”
Gucci Mane addressed the alleged The Breakfast Club ban in a recent interview. While sitting down with Charlamagne Tha God, the rapper talked about growth, his time in prison, his beef with Yee and DJ Envy — who co-host The Breakfast Club alongside Charlamagne — and rumors that he’s banned from the radio show.
“It came from that punk ass bitch,” said Gucci, referring to Angela Yee. “And DJ Envy, he’s a pussy, too […] I’mma confront him about what he and Angela did, and if he come at me wrong, I’mma slap the shit out of him… It ain’t gonna be his first time getting slapped.”
Gucci Mane has also denied claims that he had planned to apologize to Yee. “I didn’t apologize to Angela Yee. I hate that she said that I was going to apologize to her. I don’t know where she got that from, because I didn’t do nothing to her.”
Rumors that he was banned from The Breakfast Club started in 2016 after Gucci was interviewed on the show. During the interview, Gucci Mane called out Yee for allegedly wanting to have a sexual relationship with him some years ago. Yee strongly denied the accusations and the uncomfortable conversation sparked rumors that he was then banned from the show.
Following Gucci’s latest comment, DJ Envy has responded on Instagram. “This isn’t the first time I’ve been threatened by an artist and probably won’t be the last time. […] He’s upset because my coworker defended herself. Never in a million years will I tell my co-hosts what to say or what not to say. We share that platform. When Gucci did that post about Yee, she defended herself on the Breakfast Club and he’s mad because ‘I let her do it.'”
Earlier this month, Angela Yee and DJ Envy addressed the Gucci Mane situation on the Breakfast Club Court. “Somebody hit me up and said Gucci Mane would like to get on the phone with you and have a conversation and he wanted to I guess apologize for what he did and I said,” said Yee. “I don’t do that behind the scenes… You said something publicly that wasn’t true, you should publicly apologize.”
