Sexyy Red Responds To Critic Who Says She’s Misguiding Black Women
Sexyy Red clapped back at a critic who thinks the “Pound Town” rapper is partly responsible for misguiding Black women.
A Twitter user took aim at Sexyy Red on Tuesday, September, 19, in a tweet that accused the St. Louis rapper of being an industry plant tasked with leading Black women down the wrong path.
“Sexyy Red was really put out to misguide our blk women , And ITS WORKING 😮💨,” they wrote.
Once the “SkeeYee” rapper caught wind of the tweet, she issued a swift response that seemingly explained her goal when making music.
“Makin y’all shake a** misguiding y’all?” Sexyy Red asked.

There were many firing off at the critic to defend Sexyy Red by noting male rappers’ long history of violent and misogynistic rap lyrics.
“Tweet about the black men rapping tryna ruin the community, they been around A LOT longer,” one user quipped.
“Y’all always wanna have a come to Jesus black community meeting about female rappers. But when it’s males y’all wanna say that their experience they’re rapping about or they jus having fun,” another user opined.
“Sexy red will never represent all black women. Her music is just hype and fun to rap.”
