While many believed Lil’ overracted by pulling Nicki Minaj from New York’s Summer Jam concert, Weezy insists his decision was justified. Why? Because women DESERVE respect.

Weezy told MTV News

“That’s a female. First and foremost, Nicki Minaj is a female. I don’t know what anyone else believes, but I believe females deserve the ultimate respect at all times, no matter when or where or how.”

“As soon as she called me and told me she felt disrespected, I just declined everything. I pulled her from the show because . . . no person that works with me will be disrespected in my presence as long as I’m on this planet.”
