A few weeks back Wiz Khalifa was shaded by Internet trolls who criticized Wiz for letting his son ride the school bus with his friends to attend his first day of school. After some backlash, Wiz hopped on Instagram and posted a video telling people to chill out and let his kid live a normal life. The "Fr Fr" rapper recently caught up with Billboard and explained his decision to respond to the haters. 

“I figured I'd just use my platform to get my point across in a non-defensive manner. If the negativity has a voice, I wanted to give the positive side a voice. I'm happy I did it,” he told the publication. “There wasn't any pressure or anything. I felt like sticking up for my son. He's going to be mine forever. Now, down the road he can be like, ‘My dad stuck up for me and defended me regardless.’ That's my little man.”

He added: “I'm so confident in my parenting skills and what I have to offer to other people that they will look at the positive side. The negative doesn't really impact me. My relationship is with my son. As long as he's good, I don't listen to too much of the outside noise.”
