After their romantic holiday, rapper Boosie joined VladTV to discuss the relationship, which he is not a part of. theGrio reported, in the viral clip, the “Wipe Me Down” rapper shared his opinion on the couple, and called Jordan a “simp” for his courtship of the 24-year-old.

“I think we need to stop giving the woman the power with situations like this. Girls keep saying it’s ‘goals,’” he said. “We gotta start giving the bachelors, the men, who running through women like this, the credit.”

Even after pushback on social media from users critiquing the Baton Rouge artist’s misogynistic commentary, he doubled down. The rapper followed up on his first comments with another statement about Harvey and Jordan’s budding relationship, according to theGrio.

Boosie shared a video in an attempt to defend his comments and attempted to clarify his statement.

“What I want to hate on Lori for? I’m just saying that ya’ll f—ed up saying that’s goals. If you saying that’s goals, that means you want your daughter to f— seven, eight n—gas,” he said. He continued by calling Harvey “passed around.”

Neither Jordan nor Harvey have issued a direct response to Boosie’s words. The actor did, however, upload a photo of the two, affirming their love despite any outsiders projecting their opinion. He posted a glamorous picture on Instagram simply captioned “I love you baby” amid the drama-filled trending headlines.
