T-Pain is pissed — and rightfully so!
On Wednesday, the Bartender rapper took to Twitter to speak out about a racially charged encounter he had while out to dinner with some friends. Oh no.
While the record producer didn’t drop too many specifics about the incident, he did write:
Old white lady walks up to our table and asks “are you guys football players?” (Subtitles: how the fuck can y’all niggas afford to eat here)

Smh. That’s just not okay.
When asked by one follower about how he responded, the hitmaker noted:
HIGHlarious! Honestly, that’s the best answer the songwriter could’ve given in this uncomfortable situation.
Sadly, this isn’t the first time an A-lister has had to deal with racial discrimination. We mean, in this year alone, Jason Derulo, John Legend, AND Jamie Foxx have all spoken out about the ignorance they’ve recently dealt with.
In case you forgot, earlier this month, Derulo claimed he “experienced racial discrimination” at the hands of some American Airlines employees. And, back in January, Legend revealed a member of the paparazzi called him a “monkey.”
Not to mention, Mr. Foxx was pretty much called the Serbian version of the n-word while he was in Croatia for work. What is going on with the world right now?? This kind of behavior is NEVER okay.
