‘Keep these animals off the streets’: Rapper Trina blasts Miami looters, forced to apologize for it

Trina, a rap legend who was once described by XXL Magazine as “the most consistent female rapper of all time,” is no fan of Black Lives Matter rioters and looters.

Speaking on her and fellow rapper Trick Daddy’s early morning radio show on Miami’s WEDR station this past Monday, the rapper unapologetically laid into the rioters and looters that have been tearing apart communities throughout the nation, including her own in Miami-Dade County.

They need to make the curfew at 6:00 pm to 6:00 am,” she said. “Keep everybody off the street, these animals off the streets that are running around in Miami-Dade County acting like they have escaped from a zoo. Lock them up at 5:00 pm so that the streets can be nice and clean. That’s how I feel.


Trick Daddy, a gangster rapper who’s always been about the streets, disagreed.

“What the streets got to do with the people’s lives? You got money. These people got to go to work. These people been locked down,” he said.

It’s not clear what that had to do with anything. The “protests” and riots and looting were supposed to have been about George Floyd’s death, right?

Regardless, Trina replied, “I’ve been on lock down too just like them.”

[They] run through, tear down our stores and burn down our stuff, breaking our stores and go and tear up Bayside Marketplace and tear up my friend’s shop that has a son and a family to take care of,” she added. “You gonna demolish her shop for something? No.”

“It’s always personal with you,” Trick Daddy replied.

“Yeah, it’s definitely personal, because I feel like at the end of the day …,” Trina tried to respond before being cut off.

“Your friend’s got insurance,” Trick Daddy said, echoing a common refrain heard among unempathetic riot supporters.

She got insurance, but she’s also been locked down for 60 days,” Trina responded. “I don’t approve of it, period — you know what, nobody’s burning down [Trick Daddy’s Miami restaurant] Sunday’s [Eatery], let’s be very clear. You have insurance.”

When people tried peacefully protesting against the coronavirus lockdown decrees last month, they were smeared. But now that people are “protesting” Floyd’s killing by rioting, destroying business, looting stores and killing people, they’re being praised.

And so naturally, Trina’s willingness to call out the rioters made her a target for some cancel culture attacks from people who care more about the “right” of hooligans and thus to “act like animals” than they do about the rioters’ victims.

Predictably, Trina eventually apologized for having committed the apparent sin of bashing people who are destroying the property, businesses and lives of innocent people.

“I just want to say I apologize sincerely to everybody I offended by what I said. I spoke passionately about how I felt about people destroying our community here in Miami, Florida, Dade County, Liberty City, the inner cities,” she said Thursday morning on her radio show.

“I was speaking about the community. I’m not trying to take anything from anybody that has been harassed or bullied or abused or anything from the police. That was never where I was coming from or any type of ill intention whatsoever. So I take full responsibility because it was a mistake. It came off wrong. I didn’t say the right thing.”


But she made no mistake. It was clear throughout her conversation with Trick Daddy that she’d been referring to rioters and looters, not so-called “peaceful protesters.”

Nevertheless, even with her having bent the knee to the irrational mob, she’s still facing attacks from those tolerant, forgiving souls who refuse to forgive her.

Look (*Language warning):

Her critics seem as righteous as their beloved rioters, looters and killers, no?
