J Balvin is Under Fire For Comments About Rihanna Being A Woman "Just To Fool Around"
J Balvin ignited the ire of the internet.
The Colombian singer was a guest on a YouTube show by Portuguese vlogger Sir Kazzio, in which they played a game of "F*ck, Marry, Kill".
One of the questions (at the 4:20 mark) was about Rihanna to which J Balvin said, "Rihanna isn't a good woman to marry, just fool around".
Watch the video below:
In a statement to The Fader, one of J Balvin's reps said: “J Balvin has the utmost respect for Rihanna, which he has stated multiple times in interviews – repeatedly naming her as one of the artists he would most like to work with one day. In this particular case, which is being taken out of context by some, a Brazilian video Blog interview requested he answer two rounds of Kiss, Marry, Kill. J Balvin lightheartedly choose his two recent ‘Machika’ collaborators Anitta and Jeon as his ‘Marry’ responses because he knows each of them well – leaving only the ‘kiss’ or ‘kill responses remaining. He would no more wish to show any type of disrespect to Rihanna, as he would wish harm on the other names presented."
However, it was too late. The NAVY noticed his comments and are "canceling" J Balvin.
