In an apology letter he posted to his website, Macklemore states he never meant to dress like a “Jewish stereotype.”
Macklemore has come under fire — and hey, it’s not for something he rapped this time — after a recent performance that saw him don a costume while rapping breakthrough single “Thrift Shop.”
Macklemore is now in hot water with those who found his appearance at a recent show to be offensive to the Jewish community.
“Yes, I’m grateful that I lived,” Julie Lewis, who is HIV positive, says. “But I want to do something to honor all those people that we love dearly who died along the way.”
Macklemore and Ryan Lewis made a surprising announcement today, via their YouTube channel. In a just-posted video, Macklemore revealed that Lewis’ mother, Julie Lewis, has been living with HIV for 30 years. He followed that by announcing the duo’s support for an Indiegogo campaign called the 30/30 Project. The project is seeking $100,000 in donations to build clinics worldwide that will provide healthcare, with the first planned for Malawi.
Drake is calling out Macklemore for, what he believes, was a not-so-convincing apology text to Kendrick in regards to his Best Rap Album win.
