Of course, folks weren't here for it.
Update (October 17, 2018): Remy Ma has doubled-down on her controversial stance on the word "n****r." The rapper defended her view (namely, that people of any ethnicity can use the N-word) in response to a fan's comment on Instagram that said they were “disappointed” in her statement but were “still team #BlackLove.”

The rapper suggested Black people focus on owning "property/real estate, life insurance, health insurance, degrees, etc." and concluded her statement by saying, "I'm not perfect, but I aspire to be the best that I can."
Original: After getting some side-eye for her defense of Bill Cosby, Remy Ma is getting major pushback for her hot take on the word "n****r."
As Wild 94.1 reports, the rapper spoke about N-word usage on the latest episode of the popular Revolt show State of the Culture. According to WGCI, the topic popped off when the hosts began to discuss white rapper Lil Xan using the word.
“I don’t usually get offended, regardless of what your nationality is if I feel like you’re not using it as a racial slur,” Remy said.
And Scottie Beam's facial expression promptly said it all, y'all.
“I hear it so frequently from people who aren’t Black people," Remy said. "Like Fat Joe, he’s the Blackest Spanish guy on this planet Earth, and I’ve never questioned it.”
Twitter wasn't having it at all:

if remy thinks that non blacks should be able to say the n word then that’s her, with her ‘platform’ she is normalising a word all black people don’t think should be used.— Asha🧡 (@GottaMinaj) October 16, 2018
