Trina Responds to Backlash After Calling Protesters ‘Animals’

59

Trina is under fire for her comments about the protests following the death of George Floyd.

While speaking with Trick Daddy on the “Trick & Trina Morning Show” on 99 JAMZ, the Miami rapper was “fired up” and lashed out at the protesters in her hometown, referring to them as “animals” and urging Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez to push up the curfew from 9 p.m. to 6 p.m.

“They need to make the curfew at 6 p.m.,” said Trina. “Keep everybody off the street, these animals off the streets, that are running around in Miami-Dade County acting like they have escaped from a zoo. Lock them up at 5 p.m. so the streets can be nice and clean, that’s how I feel.”

She also voiced her disapproval of the property damage, revealing that her friend’s business was destroyed. “It’s definitely personal… I don’t approve of it, period,” she said after being confronted by Trick Daddy.

When asked about the murder of black men at the hands of police, Trina said she does not support any killings, whether by a police officer or civilian. “We can’t bring back nobody lives that has been taken away, whether it’s from the police or at the hands of another civilian,” she continued. “We cannot bring them back. You cannot pump life back into them at all. I can’t bring back my little brother’s life, his life was taken by the hands of a man, a black man. I can’t bring his life back.”

Derek Chauvin, the police officer who kneeled on Floyd’s neck for nearly nine minutes, has been charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter. But Trina said that’s not enough. “And that’s supposed to justify everything, right? Are you gonna put him in the death chair ’cause otherwise all the other stuff that y’all doing don’t make sense to me.”

Trina went on to call the protesters “fake” for their demonstrations. “Half of y’all marching are not even caring about this man. People are just doing it maliciously,” she added. After her comments hit social media, “Not Trina” became a trending topic—and she had time for anyone who called her out.

“Some of y’all are plain fuckN ignorant and nothing nobody do will help period,” tweeted Trina. “I’m at work and I’m muthafuckn ready.”

Someone even called upon her rival Khia to come for her. “Nobody can stay in my ass u fuckN loser,” responded Trina, while clapping back at Khia: “And dirty dreds your ugly ass always talking about somebody pussy. You want it so bad. Worry about them old ass gold in ya mouth and that dusty ass shelf u sit in front of bum.”
