“I meant what I said and I said what I meant,” Williams said after a video was posted online of Williams’ during a recent act stirred controversy when he yelled at an audience member who he claims incited the argument by insulting the United States.
“No this ain’t Mexico. It used to be Mexico [expletive] and now it’s Phoenix goddamit,” he said to the man. And he began chants of “USA! USA! USA!,” which some activists perceived as insulting but Williams defended as patriotism. The reaction elicited laughter from the audience.
“I don’t think I need to apologize for being pro-American,” Williams said.
But he was quick to express his appreciation of his Mexican fans, noting that they were a key part of his success.
“I couldn’t be anti-Mexican. My Mexican fan base is largely responsible or me even existing,” Williams said. “Between them and the black community, it’s really all I have.”
