Many are throwing their comments and thoughts into the recent news regarding Ebro Darden and Kodak Black. The radio host attempted to facilitate a conversation surrounding the rapper's sexual assault allegations. The "Codeine Dreaming" MC left the interview shortly after being made uncomfortable.
While many are standing by Darden's stab at tackling the elephant in the room, many others are calling out the Hot 97 host for bringing up such a sensitive topic. One of the people upset with Ebro is rapper Trick Daddy.
"Ebro, you disrespected the homie. You tried a young n***a. Kodak my little n***a, n***a," he said in an Instagram video defending Kodak. "If nobody gon' step up, I'm gon' step up, n***a. I want smoke, n***a. You get on the radio, you're supposed to be an older n***a. You're supposed to be a n***a that's supposed to lead these n***as not into temptation. You're supposed to get these n***as and put them under your wing and teach them the right from wrong. But your b**ch a** -- you're trying to be a fake a** Charlamagne."
After the interview gained virality, Ebro took to Twitter to explain that he was trying to have a balanced conversation, and that he wasn't trying to "bait" Kodak for views.

Earlier this week, Stephen Curry appeared on the Winging It podcast where he expressed doubt in NASA's history landing on the moon. His comments caused an uproar in the science community and drew comparisons to Kyrie Irving’s flat Earth conspiracy.
NASA even weighed in, offering Curry a free visit to the lunar lab at Johnson Space Center in Houston. Looking back, the 31-year-old Golden State Warriors point guard admits he wasn't being totally serious about his feelings on the moon.

“I was just talking nonsense around conspiracies and whatnot...and I brought up the moon landing and if I believe it or not,” Curry explained to VIBE on Tuesday (Dec. 12) at the Warriors training facility where the NBA star gave a sneak peek at his new Under Armour Curry 6 sneakers.
“I have now parlayed that into an opportunity to educate myself and have an experience I will take NASA up on,” he continued. “I’m definitely going and also, lessoned learned in terms of obviously don’t believe something just because somebody said it, educate yourself. Do your research and be intelligent about it, that’s what I plan on doing.”
No word yet on when Curry will head to NASA.

North Carolina prosecutors have placed blame on local law enforcement stating had police pursued evidence, 13-year-old Hania Aguilar would still be alive.
Robeson County District Attorney Luther Johnson Britt spoke with reporters Wednesday (Dec. 12) and said authorities were able to link suspect Michael Ray McLellan to an unrelated rape case for about a year but failed to take action.
"This hurts," Britt said. "This is like taking a punch to the gut and not being prepared to get it."
McLellan has been charged with first-degree murder and a host of other charges related to the kidnapping, rape, and murder of the teen. He's being held without bail. Last month, Hania was kidnapped from her driveway by the 34-year-old and forced into a relative's vehicle.
The eighth grader's body was found last week in water and the SUV was found less than 10 miles away from her body. Britt told CNN with the help of an interpreter he spoke to the teen's mother and explained their daughter wouldn't be coming home.
"It was a difficult conversation to have with her," he added. "Maybe the most difficult conversation I've ever had with a victim's family -- to tell them that had this information been followed up on -- her daughter might be alive."
Sheriff Burnis Wilkins said the department would launch an internal investigation.
