Remy Ma Backtracks Partially In Face of Backlash for Saying She’s OK with Non-Black People Using the N-Word

Remy Ma responded to backlash after she said it doesn’t bother her that some non-Black people use the N-Word.

“When it comes to the word n—a or n—er or n—–s or however you wanna do it, I usually don’t get offended, regardless of what your nationality is, if I feel like you’re not using it as a racial slur,” she said on the “State of the Culture” podcast. “I hear it so frequently from people that are not just Black people.”

Remy Ma Responds To Backlash After Saying She's Fine With Non-Black People Using The N-Word


After people caught wind of Remy’s stance, not only did they express their disagreement, they also hurled insults.

“Remy Ma clearly doesn’t know what prejudice means,” someone wrote.

“Dear Remy Ma, you’re entitled to your wrong opinion, that’s fine,” a second person commented. “P.S., Any black person who is cool with non-Blacks using the n-word in any context cannot be trusted.”

Remy then responded to the criticism, showed some contrition but didn’t fully recant her words.

“We have way more important pressing issues to tackle,” she wrote. “I don’t want to nor would I promote my people to attempt to own a word and try to stop certain people from using a word that has caused so much pain and oppression, a word that nobody should be using regardless of the color of their skin.”

“I try to tell them to own property/real estate, life insurance, health insurance, degrees, etc.,” Remy added. “Words that is only allowed to be used by certain races is no different from bathrooms, water fountains and section on buses … And this is coming from a woman that is Black, that has been in the prison system that unfortunately uses the n-word. I’m not perfect, but I aspire to be the best I possibly can.”
