"Not to be sexist, but..."

Rapper T.I. said during a recent radio interview that he can’t vote for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election because she is a woman and women tend to “make rash decisions emotionally.”

“Not to be sexist,” the rapper began, “but I can’t vote for the leader of the free world to be a woman.”

He continued: “Just because, every other position that exists, I think a woman could do well. But the president? It’s kinda like, I just know that women make rash decisions emotionally…they make very permanent, cemented decisions — and then later, it’s kind of like it didn’t happen, or they didn’t mean for it to happen. And I sure would hate to just set off a nuke.”

He also argued the “world ain’t ready” for a woman U.S. president. The rapper said a female president “will not be able to negotiate the right kinds of foreign policy.”

Shortly after the interview aired, T.I.’s official Twitter account sent out a statement “sincerely” apologizing for the remarks.

One Twitter user sarcastically replied, "Hi TI's PR person!"
