Big Daddy Kane has cleared the air after mistaking a sign language interpreter for a rowdy concert attendee.
The viral incident took place on Friday during Kane's performance. As he walked back and forth, rocking the crowd, Kane noticed a man mouthing his lyrics on one end of the stage. Still performing, Kane tried to get the man to leave by nudging him. The man only moved back but did not completely leave. Footage emerged showing the interpreter, identified as Billy Sanders, doing sign language for the hard of hearing attendees, but Kane doesn't appear familiar with what is happening.
As the clip spread on social media, many people called out the "I Get The Job Done" rapper for discriminating against the deaf community.
Kane quickly posted a video addressing the moment and assured fans he had no idea that Sanders was an interpreter. "We were clueless," he explained, letting his followers know that no one had informed him or his manager that Sanders would be joining him on stage.
"No one showed the clip of me apologizing to the brother and allowing him to stay on stage and finish the show. No one showed the clip of me apologizing to the crowd."
Kane says he wanted everyone to enjoy his show and would never purposefully lash out at someone helping to do that.
