Earlier this week Lil Kim – hot on the promo trail in support of her new album, ‘9’ (due October 11) – got into a heated altercation with animal rights activists who not only invaded the rapper’s personal space, but shouted for her to stop wearing fur.
The protesters, who gathered outside Verizon Media Studios in New York City Tuesday (October 8), almost caught hands from the pint-sized rapstress as she exchanged words and had to be held back by her security detail.
In her first televised interview since the incident, Kim took to our friends at ‘Extra’ to address the hoop-la. Dishing on that, her new LP, motherhood, and more, look inside to see what she said:
“I do not mind protesting,” she told resident interviewer Nate Burleson. “I think you should definitely stand up for your right. I love, love animals…However, you do not take things into your own hands. You do not get aggressive. You do not jump into anyone’s space.”
