Carnival season is in full effect and French Montana was sure to make his presence known when he arrived in the dual-island Caribbean nation Trinidad and Tobago.

The “Famous” hip-hop artist was present to perform at “Machel Monday” on Feb. 5. The event is held by popular soca artist Machel Montano. The Moroccan-born rapper posted a photo on Instagram of him dressed in a red fur coat, blue joggers, a black t-shirt, and red sneakers to match his attire with the caption, “Immigration waiting for me when I landed in Trinidad 🇹🇹 🤞🏼 but much love to all the beautiful people in Trinidad we had a blast #3rdworld #dreamers❤.”

Montana may have meant well with his initial caption, however, it opened a flood of comments from “Trinis” calling out the rapper for being disrespectful and rude.

A social media user by the name Ankhqueen_29 wrote, “Wow @frenchmontana! I was actually a huge fan until you made that third world comment..the immigration is doing there job. Don’t ever come to Trinidad 🇹🇹 if that’s how you see us. #WeAreNotThirdWorld. #F**kYou #Unfollowing”

The dragging didn’t stop there, people were blasting Montana for setting Cuba as his location instead of Trinidad.

The rapper has since removed the #3rdworld hashtag due to the backlash he’s received. On the flip side, not everyone was ready to throw Montana off the island and some people came to his defense.
