Vic Mensa stands for what he believes in.
Now the 2018 BET Awards have not yet aired, but during the filming of the award show, rapper Vic Mensa allegedly dissed the late XXXTentacion by calling him an “abuser” during Vic’s cypher.
Vic later took to Instagram to explain his side saying that he did not know that X’s mother, Cleopatra Bernard, would be in attendance to accept the award for Best New Artist on X’s behalf.
Protect women. Domestic & sexual abuse are not excusable because you have talent or you are troubled. With that said I was not aware his mother would be in attendance & I offer her my deepest condolences.

According to DJ Scheme, Vic said that “Your favorite rapper is an abuser,” in the cypher.
yo bro how u gone say "Your favorite rapper is an abuser" and then follow it with a line saying "some shit X some shit so I won't live long" u can deny it but everyone who was there heard that shit
So far, Vic has received major backlash already and the award show doesn’t air until Oct. 16th.
Did Vic Mensa just retire himself or do you think he has a point?
