Posted February 4, 2013 by BlackIce in News

Young Money boss Lil Wayne was caught on video getting into a brief altercation with a cameraman this weekend. Wayne was one of the celebrity players at DirecTV’s annual Beach Bowl football game during Super Bowl weekend in New Orleans. After Wayne’s team lost the game he can be seen yelling at a cameraman during the post-game celebrations.

“Look at me motherfucker. Look at me when you apologize,” says Wayne toward someone off camera.

E! News’s Alicia Quarles later caught up with Wayne to ask him what got him so upset. Wayne’s explains that he didn’t appreciate being pushed by one of the cameramen, and then seems to suggest that he would have reacted by pushing the man back but the color of his skin would have been held against him after the incident.

“I don’t like to be touched by people that I don’t tell to touch me. So I’ma get out of the building because if I touch somebody I go to jail because they not the color of me. They not the same color I am so you know how that go,” says Wayne.

He ended the interview with, “but to them, fuck you!”

Wayne is still currently on probation after serving eight months at New York’s Rikers Island in 2010 for a gun possession conviction. If Wayne is seen as violating the terms of his probation he could be sent back to prison.
