The Controversial Lyrics In Question, And LSU Attempts Damage Control
On Tuesday, Johnson released the video for her remix of Latto’s “Put It on Da Floor.” She used double-entendre wordplay to reference both 9/11 and the iconic Porsche sports car, according to the New York Post.
“In this 911, blowing smoke just like them towers,” she raps.
Days later, LSU told Fox News Digital that the school had spoken with Johnson about the lyrics and doubled down on the fact that she didn’t mean to upset anyone with her music.
“We spoke with Flau’jae this evening, and while she never intended to offend or upset anyone with her lyrics, she expressed sincere remorse for any possibility of a misunderstanding and immediately took the video down. We will learn and grow from this experience together,” LSU told Fox News Digital and OutKick in a statement Tuesday night.
