Erykah Badu Responds To Critics Blasting Her For Those Hitler Comments: ‘I Was Just Using My Own Brain’

Erykah Badu doesn’t care if you’re mad at her… just don’t call her “problematic.”

The singer was gassed by Twitter this week over an interview with Vulture where she said she sees the good in everyone — including Bill Cosby and Hitler.

Badu’s point was that people shouldn’t rush to anger as society so masterfully does these days, and instead should think with a more empathetic mind and draw our own conclusions. But she still said she “saw something good in Hitler.”

Many blasted the Appletree songstress for her comments, seeing empathy for Hitler as “problematic” in a society where racism and anti-Semitism are so prevalent. But when Badu responded the next day, she emphasized that only those who read the ENTIRE article understood her “message of compassion.”

In response to the backlash, the 46-year-old admitted she used “one of the worst examples possible” to illustrate extreme compassion to others. Still, she encouraged fans to say what they feel — unless it involves the word “problematic.” (It’s a word for dummies, she says!)

She continued Thursday morning:

Her address also included a bombshell announcement, which we can only imagine is her trying to deflect from all the backlash:

Okay, Erykah. So, she clearly doesn’t feel she owes anyone an apology.

Although, the songstress could be more explicit as her message could be taken a couple of ways, whether she means she triggered “people in pain” or if she’s just stating facts.

You still stanning Badu??
