This is complete bullshit and just messing with me, and in no way copying anyone or any language, accent or culture.”
“Anyone who has known me has seen me walking with voices all my life. No matter how it was interpreted, I didn’t mean that any of my actions hurt others and it absolutely broke my heart.
