In a recent interview with The Breakfast Club, Wiz Khalifa urged heterosexual men not to eat intact bananas, as doing so could be considered “suspicious.”
In the opening segment, the rapper claimed, “If you bite a banana, you sus. N*ggas gotta break the banana in half, pause.” While host Charlamagne tha God queried his stance, Khalifa remained adamant, adding, “You gotta break it in pieces, bro.”
On Twitter, some users tried to find the humor in Wiz’s claim, while many were none too pleased, calling out the rapper’s fragile masculinity as the basis of his belief.
The news comes after the rapper was accused of racism (as reported by The Korea Times) regarding a lyric on his song “Hot Now.” The line went, “Smoke got my eyes lookin’ Korean.”
When asked about the article on The Breakfast Club (around 14 minutes in), Wiz responded, “Chill out, I’m not racist. I love all races. I have Korean friends who are not offended, so I don’t know those people who are saying that. My art is up for interpretation.”
