THE WORD | BLACK TWITTER IS NOT IN FAVOR OF THIS FREE ASAP ROCKY PETITION. THEY CAN'T "RELATE' TO IT.

Rapper ASAP Rocky (real name Rakim Mayers) is currently sitting in a Swedish jail after he was involved in a street brawl in Stockholm earlier this month. Now, his celeb friends are boycotting, signing petitions, and calling out injustice in his defense. They allege he has been denied the right to fair representation and that he's being held in "inhumane conditions." He filed an appeal on Monday (July 8th), but it was denied, so the Swedish court ordered him to spend two weeks in pre-trial detention while police investigate the incident.

People haven't forgot about the time he turned a blind eye to racial injustices a few years ago. In 2015, ASAP made some comments about Ferguson and the #BlackLivesMatter movement that rubbed people the WRONG way. The Harlem took twitter to defend his comments in a series of now deleted tweets.

Black Twitter didn’t think his “apology” was sincere enough. The Bad Girl of Blogging Diamond Dosage sparked a conversation via twitter that got people talking, and the rest of black twitter chimed in as well.
