Hip Hop is tired of saying sorry….

“Recently there’s been a trend that includes rappers saying something
offensive, only to be attacked for it in the media and pressured to
apologize. I have to be completely honest and say there’s a part of me
that resents that. I view rap similar to how I view comedy. It’s going
to ruffle feathers at times. It’s going to go “too far”. I do not
believe that an apology is needed every time someone is offended,
especially when that apology is really only for the sake of saving an
endorsement or cleaning up bad press.”

-J.Cole , when addressing criticism on using a line referring to the autistic community,Although he did apologize for the verse in question, this is a common way of thinking in the hiphop community.
