T.I. has weighed in on Kanye West’s controversial comments from his presidential campaign rally yesterday at the Exquis Event Center in North Charleston, S.C. During a rambling speech, Kanye said, “Harriet Tubman never actually freed the slaves, she just had the slaves go work for other White people.”

T.I. responded today by posting a photo of Harriet Tubman to his Instagram account and writing, “Nah we can’t let you do that ‘Ye…. What we not gon’ do is slander nor disrespect the legacy of our heroic Queen Harriet Tubman by telling falsities in an attempt to discredit the contributions she made to liberate our people! Cuzz U buggin’! This is absolutely too far! I truly hope you either have a logical explanation for all this… or get the medical attention you so desperately need Bro. I say this with love and sincerity.”
