Hot 97 radio personality Ebro Darden addressed his statements to rapper Saweetie that she says triggered her PTSD.

Saweetie, 27, was promoting her single "Icy Girl" in 2018 when Ebro asked her whether she was a "rapper rapper" or just another "pretty girl who raps a little bit."

Holding her microphone tightly with both hands, Saweetie replied, "I'm a rapper. I'm a rapper rapper."

Saweetie recalled the "gut punch" encounter with Ebro in a cover interview for Cosmopolitan magazine's April 2021 issue.

She said she felt "ambushed" by Ebro, who told her she needed to do more to "impress" him.

"It was a really dark point in my life. I went from being so loved so quickly because of 'Icy Grl' to, on my first promo run, well, you saw the interview. The script flipped really quick, like night and day. I was like, Wait... I had PTSD from that."

Ebro addressed Saweetie's statement that she suffered from PTSD after he questioned her free styling skills.

"Apparently having an opinion on her freestyle rap gave Saweetie PTSD," he tweeted on Wednesday, "should I feel bad?"

On the Hot 97 blog, Ebro clarified the situation further.

"You want to rap and it is just 'cool,' we gone tell you," he wrote in the comment section of a Neighborhood Talk post. "So happy for her success, but that doesn't mean we can be dishonest about freestyle... love @saweetie tho."

Loni Love sparked a fierce debate on social media when she said all Black men cheat due to America's history of slavery that separated families.

During Friday's episode of The Real, co-host Loni Love said Black men - particularly men with money and power - cheat with no shame because slavery broke up families.

Loni, who is dating a Caucasian man, said Black men "really don't know how to have true, faithful relationships. They think because they have money, because they have power, that they can treat women any kind of way."

She added: "Money and power does not mean you do whatever you want to do."

Loni theorizes that Black men cheat with reckless abandon because "we are still dealing with slavery and we are descendants of slavery and because our families were broken up."

New co-host Amanda Seales agreed: "It's slavery; welfare reform in the '60s and '70s..."

And co-host Adrienne Bailon said privileged Black men work harder to keep their money and power, and their hustle affects their relationships with their wives.

Hot 97 host Ebro had something to say about Loni's comments that all Black men cheat due to the history of slavery.

"Imagine that pain when you're trying to be honorable and you're doing everything right and your family doesn't believe in you.

"And Black women continue to get on these platforms talking about all men do this and all Black men do that and all Black men have these problems. And as a Black man, you're working on those problems, and you're looking at your people - these suppose to be your people going out in public thrashing you all the time."

He added: "It's not just Black men out here cheating!"
