Rap star Rubi Rose is going viral across social media this morning, Media Take Out has learned – after she publicly told a White fan that she gives him “permission” to use the N Word.
Rubi – who is as famous for her beauty as her music – told the fan that White people can use the disparaging term towards Black people, as long as “their intent isn’t to be rude.”
Rubi told the Caucasian man that she’s “okay with anyone saying it.”
As you can imagine, Black Twitter is going crazy over Rubi’s comments.
Rubi Rose, 25, is from in Lexington, Kentucky. Her mother is an Eritrean immigrant dentist, and her father is of half African-American and half-Japanese descent.
