Meek Mill says that Thanksgiving is a “fake” holiday, and that “pilgrims killed the Indians.” After receiving backlash, for the comment, he defended himself in a series of tweets.

“Thanksgiving fake,” Meek began in a tweet. “The pilgrims killed the Indians I still remember them books from school horrible I got Indian friends.”

Later, Meek shared a link to YelloPain’s “Happy Thanksgiving” music video.

“This what I was trying to say about thanksgiving,” he told one user. “I was just with some people from London, they don’t even celebrate that shit lol I never thought about if they did either.”

“Why you so passionate about my thoughts… you get any money this week?” Meek wrote after receiving backlash, before adding, “Are you eating off your education. Who are you and why you on my dick like this? lol I be crushing this life. Chill bro, I feed families trees you not on my level…”

While he may not be a fan of the historical background of the holiday, Meek has celebrated the event with “Dreamchasers Thanksgiving” drives in years past. He also mentioned that he will still be meeting up with his family this year.

Meek’s Thanksgiving comments come following his release of the Flamerz 5 mixtape on Monday. On the tape, Meek raps over some of the biggest hits of the year, including GloRilla’s “Tomorrow,” DJ Khaled’s “GOD DID” as well as Ice Spice’s “Munch (Feelin’ U).”

Meek has also said that he plans to release a new album in the beginning of 2023.
