Wale Explains Why He Confronted Twitter Troll At WWE Raw


Monday Night before rapper Wale flicked it up in the club with newly-signed Washington Redskins receiver DeSean Jackson, the rapper confronted a Twitter troll who wanted a bit of attention while both were checking out WWE RAW. Wale now explains why he confronted the Tweeter.

A user with the handle @Chefboyrnach fired off a series of since-deleted threatening tweets: “Did wale just walk by me!? Nahhh b he better come collect this fade,”. “You at Monday night raw f—boy? Come see me in the ring and catch this stunner @wale.”

“It was just a dude that was like, ‘I’mma kick your ass. I better not see you here,’” the rapper told MTV News on Tuesday. Because the posts were launched from the same location Wale was at rather than some far off IP address, like most Twitter hate, the DMV native decided to find their author. A video surfaced of their interaction, but at less than 20 seconds, it’s hard to decipher exactly what went down.

“I was like, ‘Yo, is this you?’ And one thing lead to another, and I just kind of mushed him a little bit,” the rapper explained, stressing that things didn’t turn violent. “Honestly, if there wasn’t kids right there, it would have went a little bit differently, but I just wanted to be conscious of them. It’s not to say it was the right decision. But in the moment, you know.”

“People get it misconstrued,” he went on. “Like, ‘Oh, you’re so butt-hurt.’ It’s not even that. I come from a place where when we was at the lunch table and n—as was jonesing on each other, I’ll respond. I’m gonna have something better, too. And now we’ve come to a place where, if you respond, you’re a bitch. Somebody could say ‘F— you’ 100 times, if I say ‘f— you’ back, then I’m a bitch. And people be like, ‘You’re famous, you shouldn’t care.’

People often think that their Twitter or online life is separate from their physical world. People have been fired from jobs, confronted and more, all because of those 140 characters. Best to keep the same attitude online as you would in person.


Side note, the altercation looked as if it could’ve been featured as one of the rivalries featured on WWE. Just a lot of pushing, but no real action.
