Young Hollywood Says He IS NOT Sorry for What He Said to Amara + Goes Off on ‘LHHMIA’ Fans for Attacking Him

During the series premiere of VH1’s Love & Hip Hop Miami, Amara La Negra instantly became the show’s breakout star after producer Young Hollywood told her to switch up her look in order to make it into the mainstream.

The words DID not sit right with Amara nor viewers and an outpouring of support was given to her. Not only that, Amara signed a multi-album record deal with Fast Life Entertainment Worldwide and BMG.

On Monday night, Young Hollywood went live on Instagram where he went off on “fans” and viewers of the show who were attacking him. He stated that the advice he gave Amara about trading in her fro for an elegant look was merely a reflection of what the music industry expects and not his personal beliefs:

“Amara is a beautiful girl. But it’s sad to say that I’m not the highest peak of the totem pole. It’s just sad that some industries require certain looks for certain songs, just to appeal to certain markets…Look at me, bro! I couldn’t even be racist if I wanted to.”

He added:

“Look at the comments these people are leaving. That’s real hatred. That’s real racism, when people start attacking other people and in people’s comments speaking negativity and evil. You know how many people wrote me ’I hope you die’ or ’I hope your family burns’ and when you look at their pages they have families and they look like nice people. That’s crazy to me.”

He then goes on to say that it’s the CEO’s of the companies that are the bad guys:

“It’s not me who you should be bashing…it’s the CEO of these companies. The CEO’s of these major labels. That’s who y’all should be coming after. That’s the reason I haven’t really addressed it, because this sh*t is over my head. It’s deeper than rap. Trust me, I’m very well-educated. I know very well where Latinos come from. The only reason we have light skinned Latinos is because their ancestors were raped by the Spaniards. Trust me, I know my history. Don’t get it twisted…I’m not stupid or ignorant like that.”
