Rapper Black Nut Found Guilty Again In Appeal For Defamation Of KittiB

In January this year, the rapper was sentenced to two years of probation with the possibility of a six-year prison sentence in the event of a repeat offense for sexual insults against rapper KittiB in his song “Too Real.” KittiB sued Black Nut in June 2017 for the remarks in the song as well as four instances of insults during performances in 2016 and 2017.

August 12, in Black Nut’s appeal, judges upheld the initial sentence. They said, “It appears that the defendant used the plaintiff as sexual target and used derogatory and explicit language, and we have determined that [Black Nut] was fully aware in doing so that his actions were degrading.”

Black Nut had continued to plead innocence, claiming that disses are commonplace and accepted in hip hop. The judges said, “Though the defendant is claiming that as a diss in hip hop music, his actions are acceptable, we don’t believe there is a reason to make an exception for just the genre of hip hop.”

“Sexual insults”? Is that just an awkward translation? Wouldn’t it just be called sexual harassment?

Good! I'm glad the decision was upheld. Women in music are degraded in a very specific manner that goes beyond artistic license or showboating etc & he should be held responsible

My freedom of speech philosophy is troubled by this even though women take so much damn shit it's time for men to get some. reframing it as sexual harassment (is it though? I don't know enough of the specific facts) makes me feel better

Also, his name is stupid.

Goes to show that just because you /can/ say whatever you want dosen't mean you can't be sued for it
