Dear journos. I will always make dirty, racist, sexist jokes as long as I live because I think it's funny. My mom raised me that way.— FLYLO (@flyinglotus) September 19, 2016
The controversy began while FlyLo was performing at Oakland venue the Fox Theater on Friday (September 16), where he started talking about Donald Trump. After apparently critiquing the Republican, he then put the focus on Clinton, cracking: "I couldn't possibly vote for a woman who doesn't give an awesome blowjob." This was a reference to husband and former President Bill Clinton's affair with Monica Lewinsky back in the '90s.
The producer quickly followed this up by reiterating: "I'm just kidding. I'm going to vote for her ass anyway."
After being met with a series of angry tweets that called the remarks misogynistic, Flying Lotus offered up more support for Hillary Clinton's campaign, and then expressed that the rise in PC culture has him wanting to grab a mic and "say some depraved shit u need to hear."
Vote Hillary 😰— FLYLO (@flyinglotus) September 17, 2016
The more PC and scared everyone gets, the more I love having a microphone to say some depraved shit u need to hear #cantwaitfortonight— FLYLO (@flyinglotus) September 17, 2016
Considering his latest remarks, you can expect more "depraved shit" from Flying Lotus sometime soon, possibly via his feature film, Kuso.
Just wait till they see "Kuso".— FLYLO (@flyinglotus) September 19, 2016
