Lil Mama Apologizes For Insensitive Comments

Lil Mama

On last week's episode of America's Best Dance Crew, Lil Mama made some comments about transgender contestant Leiomy Maldonado that might have came off as insensitive.

"Leiomy, your behavior, come on, it's unacceptable. You need to remember your truth… you were born a man and you are becoming a woman. If you're going to become a woman, act like a lady."

Well, Lil Mama realized that she might lose fans (she has fans?) so she issued an apology to GLAAD:

"I would like to clarify anything that was misunderstood from Sunday's show. My remarks were never meant to be disrespectful regarding Leiomy's gender nor offensive to the LGBT community, which has been a community that has supported me in all my endeavors. However, in hindsight, I recognize that my words may have come across as hurtful. I spoke with her privately after the taping to express that it was not my intent to offend her or any member of the transgender community and that I still live for Vogue Evolution."

Well kudos to Lil Mama for realizing what she said might have been a little insensitive. Shit, it looked like Leiomy was about to cut a bitch up in there.
