Wale deleted a post shading J. Cole after this weekend's protests.
The world is hurting. For the duration of the last week, protests have been aplenty as we fight back against racial injustice. The public is having their voices heard and, in Fayetteville, North Carolina, the famed rapper J. Cole joined along to march and chant for the equal treatment of people of color in America.
Photos circulated on social media, showing the rapper participating in one of the organized protests in his city. While his efforts were being praised by the majority of his fans, one person took the opportunity to throw a shot at Wale, asking him what he was doing to support Black Likes Matter at this time. The rapper has been using his platform to spread awareness but he was clearly pissed at the remark, deciding to shade Cole in his response.

"I'm sick of a lot of u acting like y'all messiah was the only one outside suck my dick," wrote Wale on Twitter. The controversial message has since been removed from his feed.
Wale is seemingly angry that people are only paying attention to J. Cole's efforts at this important time in history, failing to recognize all that he has done to raise awareness and fight back himself.
Do you think he was wrong in snapping like this?
