Boosie Badazz is livid over Brittney Griner getting nine years in a Russian prison, and he knows exactly who to blame for this. The sentencing was handed down on Thursday and has since become one of the most talked about topics on social media.
Shortly after hearing the news, Boosie shared an Instagram video of himself blasting the country as well as VP Kamala Harris.
He also stated that if this was Taylor Swift, she would be home right now.
“How the hell this girl get nine years for a weed pen?” he began. “And the USA ain’t doing nothing about it. You tell me that! If that was Taylor Swift, there’d be a peace treaty right now. They’d be drafting to go to war. For a weed pen! Nine years!
“What that show for Black women in the United States? And the Vice-President as a Black woman, you supposed to be on the frontline to get that Black woman out of jail! Nine damn years. Y’all fucked up in this world!”
Griner was arrested with less than one gram of cannabis oil in her luggage at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo International Airport on February 17th. She has been imprisoned in the country ever since.
Judge Anna Sotnikova of the Khimki city court sentenced Griner to the nine years along with a one-million rubles (roughly $16,400) fine.
President Joe Biden promptly issued a statement and condemned the Russian court for its decision.
“Today, American citizen Brittney Griner received a prison sentence that is one more reminder of what the world already knew: Russia is wrongfully detaining Brittney,” Biden said. “It’s unacceptable, and I call on Russia to release her immediately so she can be with her wife, loved ones, friends, and teammates.”
