Karrueche Tran caught a bit of backlash this morning after slamming ‘lean’ just hours following the death of Fredo Santana.
Hip-hop at large, friends and family are mourning the loss of Fredo Santana, who died yesterday (January 20), reportedly from a seizure. While the exact cause of the seizure is unknown, Santana had recently been hospitalized for liver and kidney failure.
Amidst the support and farewells, Tran took to Twitter to post a comment that many thought was directed at Santana about the use of drinking a concoction of prescription cough syrup, promethazine and other medications known as “lean,” which has been known to be hazardous with overuse.
Tran posted a now-deleted Tweet reading, “LEAN IS WEAK AF #lame #corny #sorrynotsorry.” Facing an immediate onslaught of negative comments, she quickly backtracked and deleted the post. The heat in her direction continued making her post a tweet apologizing for her comment.
“That totally came out the wrong way,” she wrote. “Wasn’t tryna offend anyone. I meant it in general terms. Bad timing” Tran says. When a person on Twitter asked her why she apologized, she stood her ground for her original post and commented on how it was untimely.
“What I said was 1000% true. It was bad timing and seemed directed towards Fredo (RIP) which it wasn’t at all.”
Santana leaves behind an 8-month-old son.
