After Daniel Caesar went on an epic rant that resulted in a monumental dragging on social media, Waka Flocka and Tammy Rivera are offering the artist some words of advice.
Twitter called for the cancellation of the Canadian-born crooner after he delivered a drunken rant on Instagram Live, as Blavity reported. Caesar took to Instagram attempting to defend media personality YesJulz, who herself is under fire for sharing remarks seen as anti-Black.
"Why are we being so mean to Julz?" Caesar asked. "Why are we being so mean to white people right now?"
The singer later attempted to clarify his stance by saying, "You can't win the game by choosing to not accept the winning team's strategy. You have to acknowledge the strategy and then build a strategy on top of that. Being a victim doesn't get you paid."

Many interpreted Caesar's comments to mean he feels Black people should get over the racism of the past, a stance that completely ignores the racism that continues to be a problem today.
TMZ caught up with Waka Flocka and his wife, artist Tammy Rivera, and asked them about Caesar's rant.
"It’s not about white people of the millennium, it’s about the old motherf**kers that’s still being racist," Waka said. "A white man just killed all them Muslims, they pulled all the hashtags down [supporting the victims]; but you see all the Black kids dying [on your timelines]."
After the couple was informed Caesar is from Canada, Rivera insisted the more liberal politics of his homeland are the reason for his stance. She said Caesar is probably ignorant to the reality of life in the United States.
"Tell him drive by the street in a car and speed and get pulled over by two white cops, then he’ll figure out why," Rivera said.
Flocka, on the other hand, said he felt nationality was no excuse for Caesar's comments.
“Bruh, don’t speak American business," he said.
"And make sure you stay the f**k away from Bricksquad, 'cause we might get over on your a*s, bro,” he said, referring to his record label. “Don’t you ever in your life talk about Black people like that, boy you stupid?”
Finally, when responding to Caesar's assertion Black people need to let go of the past, Wacka summed up the situation like this: “N***a got his hair blonde, he shouldn’t talk about Black people.”
