Kodak Black Storms Out Of Interview After Host Brings Up Sexual Assault Case
December 13, 2018 at 5:12 pm
Kodak Black walked out of a radio interview after the host asked about his pending sexual assault case.
The rapper immediately shut down when Hot 97’s Ebro of Ebro in the Morning asked him about the incident, reports Billboard.
“Look, man, at this point, it’s a pleasure to meet you man,” Ebro told Kodak. “You know, looking at all your cases and everything you’ve been through, and I know the recent one right now is very sensitive. Respect to everybody involved in that case, we can’t get into details today… We take sexual assault here serious. We can’t get into details, but we hope to have you back so that we can have a deeper conversation about that. It’s a serious topic, we’re hearing these stories a lot."
Kodak Black responded to the question with a blank stare. Peter Rosenberg, Ebro’s co-host, brought up moon landing conspiracy theories to diffuse the tension, but the pivot was ineffective.
“What the f**k you all talking about?” Kodak responded.
Ebro noted Kodak appeared to be uncomfortable. The 22-year-old suggested a subject change and threatened to leave.
“I feel like sometimes when n***as going through s**t, y’all be entertained by bulls**t, you know what I’m talking about?” Kodak said. “So like, change the subject, or I’m finna walk out.”
Ebro reminded the “Zeze” rapper Rosenberg already tried, but Kodak said the topic was “bulls**t.”
“We don’t have to talk about something else. We can be done right here,” Ebro concluded.
“All right, I’m going,” Kodak replied before leaving the studio.
Rosenberg said his departure was a “bummer,” but Ebro was over the situation.
“You don’t tell me what to talk about on my show,” he said.
Ebro later addressed the incident on Twitter.

In 2016, Kodak Black was accused of raping a teenager at a Comfort Inn in South Carolina, according to WPDE. The girl eventually reported the incident to her school nurse. A grand jury indicted him in October 2017, and he will go to trial in April 2019.
