“When you get my age Memorial Day is about getting sh*t faced by the pool, eatin Bbq and not rememberin sh*t so…Yea,” he wrote on Sunday (May 28). Many people replied to the Taylor Gang MC’s comments in a very negative way.

“Like damn wiz I just lost all respect for you,” one user wrote, while others believed that the rapper’s thoughts about the holiday were disrespectful to those who lost their lives serving our country.

“[Memorial Day] could also be about my brothers and sisters that died out there fighting for the right for you to enjoy a weekend off,” a Twitter user wrote.

Wiz followed up on his controversial tweet by stating that he “Didn’t mean anything rude, that was just [my] way of saying sometime people rather focus on the good times than the bad.” A fan wrote that those who had a problem with his initial tweet “…are prolly drunk by the pool right now too.”
