Nelly says Spelman ain’t isht for protesting his sister’s search for a bone marrow donor…
Nelly Blames Spelman College Protest For His Sister’s Death
Via HuffPo reports:
In the past, Nelly has expressed his frustration with a group of protesters who boycotted his 2004 bone marrow drive at Spelman College due to his sexually explicit music video, “Tip Drill.” The planned drive was in support of his sister, Jacqueline Donahue, who later lost her battle to leukemia in 2005.
And while the multi-platinum rapper may have been mum on the college’s protest in recent years, today during an appearance on HuffPost Live he revealed the one thing he would’ve done differently in retrospect to the demonstration.
“The Spelman thing, the only thing I feel I would’ve did different is kick somebody’s azz…that’s just how it felt to me, Pimp,” he said to host Marc Lamont Hill. “I don’t have my sister. And I doubt it if half of those girls are still campaigning for what they quote, unquote took advantage for that opportunity for.”
“You [protesters] robbed me of a opportunity. Unfairly, my brother. Because we could’ve still had your conversation after I got my opportunity, but it could’ve been somebody that was coming to that bone marrow drive that day, that was possibly a match for my sister. That didn’t come because of that…”
Nelly’s sister was dying and he was making an effort to save her life. Women, not his sister, have their whole lives to protest strip clubs (which they don’t.) Do you think Spelman was out of pocket to protest at that effort?
