DJ Vlad APOLOGIZES To Black Professor After Trying To Get Her Fired

Lyndon Abioye |

DJ Vlad has issued an apology to a Black woman who he got into a heated exchange with on X.

“After considerable reflection, I would like to apologize to 

@MorganJerkins for tagging her job in my replies during our Twitter exchange last weekend,” he tweeted.

Vlad tweeted that Kendrick Lamar’s “Not Like Us” did not have a good mix. The woman, a professor at Princeton, told him to stay out of the conversation as it is between Black people. The woman in question is also the niece of industry great, Rodney Jerkins.

Vlad reacted by tagging Princeton multiple times.

“Good luck being a professor at @Princeton again. I doubt the university supports their faculty telling non-black students to shut the fuck up about anything Hip-Hop related because of their skin color,” he wrote in one tweet.

According to Vlad’s followers, the jury is still out on whether he is forgiven.

“Usually sincere apologies are more immediate. My guess is that you were checking the temperature in the room and realized it was getting too hot to handle,” journalist Dennis Byron tweeted in response. “Your immediate reaction was to target her employer and not create a respectable dialogue. To compound the situation, you attacked a highly respected scholar in our community @marclamonthill The jury is still deliberating on this one.”
