Following his ill-advised comments in a Playboy magazine interview, in which he used the “N” word, John Mayer has drawn some fire from the hip-hop community. On Wednesday, Mayer apologized for some of the comments he made in the interview, in which he controversially made comments about black women and his lack of a “hood pass” that many have perceived as racist.
Talib Kweli rubbed it in a bit, writing on his Twitter page, “My man John Mayer must love the taste of his own foot.”
Noreaga wasn’t having it, from Mayer or the magazine, re-tweeting a comment that read, “Playboy set his ass up good on black history month!” which followed a much more harshly worded comment from Nore himself: “Dear John Mayer, black women don’t like u cause ur a a–hole.”
Joell Ortiz tweeted, “John Mayer will get off the hook just like Asher Roth did. Throw money, a lame apology and some good PR at us and we forget.
