Celebrities React to Lil Wayne’s Meeting with Donald Trump

A number of celebrities are baffled by Lil Wayne’s recent meeting with President Donald Trump.

Thursday on Twitter, the “Lollipop” rapper, born Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., shocked fans when he revealed he sat down with Trump to discuss the politician’s “Platinum Plan.”

Unveiled earlier this month, the proposal, among a number of things, plans to build up “peaceful” urban neighborhoods with the “highest policing standards,” expand school choice, improve economic opportunity for Black Americans, prosecute the Ku Klux Klan and Antifa as terrorist organizations, and make Juneteenth a federal holiday.

“Just had a great meeting with @realdonaldtrump @potus besides what he’s done so far with criminal reform, the platinum plan is going to give the community real ownership,” the MC wrote in what many believe is a presidential endorsement.

“He listened to what we had to say today and assured he will and can get it done,” he added.

However, after Carter’s post went viral, several celebrities voiced their disapproval.

Responding directly to Carter’s tweet, Yvette Nicole Brown wrote, “I am so glad I love people more than my bank balance. There’s nothing a white supremacist could offer me that is worth my people or the lives of any other group of people in this country who are suffering.”

When asked to co-sign Carter’s support of Trump, Lil Jon exclaimed, “HOW ABOUT ------- NOOOOOO.”

On his Twitter page, 50 Cent posted a screenshot of Carter and Trump’s photo, and wrote, “oh no WAYNE, I WOULD HAVE NEVER TOOK THIS PICTURE. #bransoncognac #lecheminduroi.”

However, a fan then responded with a pic of 50 and Trump.

50 also previously supported Trump’s tax plan but has since rescinded his endorsement.

In a video taken by The Hill and reposted by The Shade Room, Trump told reporters that Carter asked for a meeting.

“He wanted a meeting. He’s a really nice guy. He’s really an activist in a very positive way,” Trump said about the musician.

Back in 2016, Carter made headlines when he told “Nightline” that he didn’t feel “connected” to the Black Lives Matter movement.

“I don’t feel connected to a damn thing that ain’t got nothin’ to do with me,” he said at the time.
