Hot 97’s Ebro Darden has woken up to praise and admiration this morning after he quizzed the rapper Kodak Black, who is accused of sexual assault, on the serious matter.
His questioning saw the entertainer end their filmed conversation abruptly and score praise from Hip-Hop fans who feel the genre and its culture shield sexual predators from the criticism some say Kodak is trying to run from.
Full story below…
The assault is alleged to have taken place in February 2016 at the Comfort Inn and Suites in Florence County, South Carolina following Octave’s show at the Treasure City nightclub. The victim, a teenage girl, is said to have initially reported the assault to her school nurse.
Well.. that was awkward. Kodak Black walks out on his interview w/ @EBROINTHEAM.

Ebro been trending for like 2 days for bringing up Kodak’s current sexual assault case and y’all aren’t mad at the person allegedly performing the sexual assault but the dude interviewing him because…?

If Kodak was so innocent he wouldn’t have been so offended by Ebro bringing it up period.

Exactly. And I seen trick daddy’s ass talking some huge nonsense!!! When really Ebro did step up, he is directly telling Kodak to face his bullsht. Clear the air. Own it so it can be dealt w/.
But idk if he wants to deal with it, or become a new person.
Kodak is a cancer sun https://t.co/sc38W2cJGk

I’m gonna be honest everyone getting mad that @oldmanebro spoke up about Kodak black’s sexual assault case is the reason why women and little girls are afraid to speak out being sexual assaulted. it’s really sad. when I got raped I got so much backlash for speaking out. it’s sad

Judging by the comments on several posts about Kodak Black you can tell there’s a whole generation/sector of folks that have normalized sexual assault, rape culture and lewd behavior against women. Especially within Rap fandom. So salute @oldmanebro for gettin that convo going…

You’d think Kodak Black w/ a rape trial ahead and who had to revamp his social-media after that (ironically) anti-dark skin (black) women rant, would be minding his image but alas!
The anger is directed at Ebro (a host/ interviewer) for asking a celeb questions. pic.twitter.com/FkPkLGMVvt

I looked at why Ebro trending, and it’s a bunch of motherfuckers mad at him for standing against sexual predators… Hip Hop has never truly cared for women, and definitely not LGBT people. KODAK BLACK IS A RAPIST.

These types of tweets are toxic to our community, you’re essentially refusing to hold Kodak Black accountable for his recent case and slamming the interview for asking a question. No one should feel like they are above the law, he is a public figure & should’ve owned his wrongs https://t.co/8D9Wb0aAFe

Meanwhile, y’all want all the smoke to defend Kodak Black, but you know who’s left out of the equation?! THE TEENAGER HE ASSAULTED!!!! WHO’S DEFENDING HER?! I’m confused. Oh wait she not y’all little sis so she’s fair game. Y’all disgust me. Seriously.
