GoldLink Trends No. 1 on Twitter Day After Making Controversial Mac Miller Statement
Nearly one day after uploading a controversial open letter to the late Mac Miller to his Instagram account, GoldLink has found himself in the crosshairs of fans across the U.S.
On Wednesday (Nov. 27), the DMV rapper trended at No. 1 for U.S. trends as fans called him out for suggesting that Miller, who died of a drug overdose on Sept. 7, 2018, got the idea for his The Divine Feminine from Link's And After That, We Didn't Talk project. In an endless stream of tweets, fans have called GoldLink's remarks insensitive while saying the rapper was out of line.
"Shut the fuck up @GoldLink, didn’t even get past your first 5 words and I have to tell you to shut the fuck up lmfaooooo," wrote one Twitter user. "I always liked @GoldLink music, but after seeing that insensitive egotistical open letter from him, I won't ever support him again. go fuck yourself dude," wrote another.
Hip-Hop artists have also spoken out against GoldLink's letter. Hours after Link posted the message onto social media, Anderson .Paak, who previously collaborated with both Miller and GoldLink, bashed Link for his message.
"@goldlink I would imagine yo weird ass posted up somewhere just like this when you decided to make that disrespectful, narcissistic, jealous grossly unnecessary post," .Paak wrote in the caption for an Instagram post directed at GoldLink. "Why would you do it I can't even understand It."
