Florida rapper XXXTENTACION has become synonymous with wild concert antics, but during a recent show, he took it down a notch to address hate and inequality, which was captured in a video uploaded to Twitter on Monday (June 5).
After playing audio from a hate-filled rant featured in the documentary Ku Klux Klan: A Secret History (audio also featured on X’s “RIOT” track), X told the audience he doesn’t care what a person’s race or sexual orientation is.
“Pause it. Pause it. Now listen,” X said. “I don’t give a fuck if you’re black, white, yellow, purple. I don’t give a fuck if you’re gay. I don’t give a fuck if you’re straight. I give a fuck if you’re a person.”

X then encouraged fans in attendance to shout “Fuck the KKK” as he continued to speak on his intolerance for hate, adding that everyone “deserves to have freedom.”
“I stand for equality for all people,” he said. “I don’t give a fuck what you are, where you’re from — a person is a person. And a person deserves to live. And a person has freedom of speech. And a person deserves to have freedom.”
The crowd promptly burst into a “Fuck Donald Trump” chant following his impassioned speech.
X continues his North American tour Tuesday night (June 6) in Los Angeles and heads to San Diego on Wednesday (June 7) before wrapping up in Atlanta on July 1.
