Stephen Jackson has once again come out on behalf of George Floyd's family in reaction to statements made by the musician formerly known as Kanye West.
In a recent Instagram post, Ye stated that he contributed $2 million "out of my pocket for the family" to support Floyd's daughter.
“Now for Roxie Washington and Roxie Washington ALONE,” Ye, who’s continued in recent days to make harmful comments widely condemned as anti-Semitic, wrote in the since-removed post. “I gave 2 million dollars out of my pocket for the family. To help George’s daughter…Your daughter! I can guarantee that most of those that came for me after my comments didn’t do what I did! Even those with millions of dollars in the bank!”
In the same post, Ye handled a recently announced $250 million lawsuit wherein Washington is acting on behalf of her minor child, who is the sole beneficiary of Floyd's estate, as previously reported.
“You’re either being controlled or you’re being greedy,," Ye wrote in the deleted post.
“First off, Roxanne could care less what you think about her hat. That’s number one,” Jackson said in the clip. “We ain’t gon’ talk about that bullshit you be wearing and marking it up for your own people to pay for. But we ain’t gon’ talk about that. You say stupid shit, you get stupid prizes. Nobody asked you to say nothing about George Floyd but you decided to say that on your own so you gon’ pay the consequences. Roxanne was minding her business, Gianna was minding her business. Oh, and also, Roxanne and Gianna and the family is two different people. She don’t stand with the family and the family don’t stand with her. They had different lawyers during the whole court process.”
When presenting a conflicting statistic, Jackson referred to the artist as "delusional" when addressing the donation-focused component of Ye's new statements.
“Kanye delusional,” he said. “You didn’t give Gianna $2 million. She got $250,000 that they broke down through the families that Roxanne is giving back to you.”
Ye has now reacted to Jackson, although through the right-wing portal Parler, which he is said to be purchasing. It's worth repeating that the CEO of Parlement Technologies is married to Candace Owens.
“I’m a digital prisoner right now but if you keep talking Ima keep talking,” Ye wrote on the platform, as seen in screenshots shared to Twitter and elsewhere. “If you shut the fuck up I’ll leave it alone.”
