He previously called actor Michael Jai White a “b*tch ass n*gga” and stated he can use the word because a DNA kit revealed he was 2% African.
Perry also stated that he was allowed to use the word after taking a DNA test that revealed he was 2 percent African, but it seems that he’s had a change of heart. On the first day of Black History Month, Perry returned to his Twitter account to reveal that he will no longer be using the n-word. “I know some won’t care but some might appreciate this. This is for my son and me as a son to be different than my father. Also black history month,” Perry wrote.
“I would like to apologize for any time I ever said n***a , plain and simple you won’t hear it from me anymore. #NoDisrespect.” The response to his post was mixed, as some readily accepted his apology while others weren’t as forgiving.
