Nate Robinson couldn’t take a break on social media after being knocked out in a boxing match with Jake Paul over the weekend. From the memes to the reposts of footage of the actual moment he went down, people came to see Nate’s portrayal of black athletes, but Fat Joe said, “AHT AHT!”
In a recent Instagram video, Fat Joe came to Nate’s defense and made it clear that his decision to enter the ring was an act of courage and people need to pay some respect to his name!
“It’s so much a lion’s heart to go in there and fight and I don’t think people give it the respect they should,” he said. “And a lot of people on social media, that is, you, like to talk shit and basically you wouldn’t do it yourself.”
Joe didn’t just talk about people on social media, however. He even exclaimed saying he turned down millions of dollars to fight 50 cents when they had beef back then because he wasn’t here to be knocked out in front of millions of people.
“I wouldn’t do it,” he continued. “When I got 50 cents of beef, people were wrong and offered me $ 10 million, $ 5 million to fight 50 against one. Now I’m not afraid of 50, I would have fought him for free then. But maybe getting knocked out on TV? It’s tough.”
The fight was definitely one for the books where Nate accepted the fight when Jake Paul called him on social media. People even started a “Nate Robinson Challenge,” which mimics what Nate looked like when he hit the ground. With all that said, Fat Joe is alluding to blacks who respect people in our community who risk themselves in the name of entertainment.
“It’s tough and I don’t think we should give him his respect. He was knocked out, I see. It was explosive. It was crazy. But you can’t stop Tryna from killing our people who have the courage to entertain us. “
