Flavor Flav says he “doesn’t have anything against Bernie” after Public Enemy ousting
Flavor Flav has been going back and forth with the remainder of Public Enemy ever since his ousting from the group, which followed a spat over their billing, as "Public Enemy," rather than "Public Enemy Radio," (which was only in the fine print) to perform at a Bernie Sanders rally without him. Flav said he couldn't believe Chuck D was kicking him out of the group "over politics," while Public Enemy released a statement saying they "did not part ways with Flavor Flav over his political views." Now Flav has explained his position further. In a new interview with The Guardian, he says that, despite the cease and desist he sent Bernie, he doesn't "have anything against" the Vermont senator.
"I don’t have anything against Bernie," Flav told The Guardian. "I think he’s a good person and I wish him luck. I think they’re all good people. Except Trump. Some people tried to say I did this because I’m a Trump supporter and that’s not true. Fuck Trump!"
Chuck D also posted on Twitter, "last final note the last final note was my last straw was long ago. It’s not about BERNIE with Flav... he don’t know the difference between BarrySanders or BernieSanders he don’t know either. FLAV refused to support @Sankofa after @harrybelafonte inducted us. He don’t do that."
