Da Brat APOLOGIZES For Using A White MAN … To Create Her Baby w/ Judy.

Female rapper Da Brat is facing criticism for choosing a White man, to father her child – when there were plenty of qualified Black men to sire her child with life partner Judy.

The new season of “Brat Loves Judy,” premiered April 27, and the newlywed couple gives fans insight into their fertility journey and the lack of Black sperm donors.

“That [dude] looked like Jiminy Cricket,” Brat said in an episode while pooling through a selection of viable candidates and only one Black donor was presented to the couple. “I was like, ‘I’m sorry but that wasn’t gonna be my choice.’ … But I think we did a great job with picking. He’s handsome, he’s tall, and I think he’s going to look beautiful with my wife’s egg.”

In an interview with The Root, Brat explained their decision to go with a white donor but fans believe the choice was grounded in colorism. Brat and Judy clapped back to these accusations during a recent appearance on the “Tamron Hall Show”

“I didn’t think it would be offensive to anybody,” the rapper said about the “Jiminy Cricket” comment. “I cracked jokes about almost everybody that I saw, that one just happened to make it in the show. I wasn’t trying to be mean or say anything negative about Black people. We were looking for a Black donor. We’re Black, we wanted a Black donor. So it was just misconstrued and taken way out of context.”

She continued, “I had no idea people were going to be so offended, but I meant no harm whatsoever. We wanted a Black donor—I was just like, ‘What?’ People take things and run with it. … People who know me know that I didn’t mean any harm. So if I offended anybody, I do apologize. But it was a joke between me and my wife and the doctor, we joke like that, we play around, so it wasn’t meant to be offensive in any way.”

Dupart blamed misleading headlines for the online hate directed at Da Brat.

“I’m more on social than she is and there were things that I was really trying to avoid her from seeing,” she said. “They had comments that said, ‘I just hope you guys miscarry.’ … So I’m trying to delete a lot of stuff so she can’t see it on my page and she can’t see it on her page because it was extreme hate … Oh my god, if nothing else at this time, I feel like this should be at least an educational moment so our people aren’t as ignorant.”
