Chillinit, a Sydney rapper, retracts comments about Gladys Berejiklian's Lockdown.
Chillinit, the rapper who goes by the moniker, changed his tune in response to calls from his management.
Following pressure from his management, Sydney rapper Blake James Turnell has changed his tune following an expletive-laced rant against Premier Gladys Berejiklian.
Mr Turnell, whose Instagram handle is ChillinIT, threw a temper tantrum on Wednesday, posting a series of videos on his Instagram about Sydney's lockdown and the premier.
“Gladys, please wake up, you big-nosed f**k,“ he said.
“Whether Covid is real or not, I have no idea; I am not a doctor, but all I know is that we need to end this lockdown and allow people to continue f**king living.”
Throughout the series of angry posts, he lamented his inability to complete his third album, tensions with his girlfriend, and his inability to see his family.
He shifted his tone, however, when he posted a video on Thursday morning in which he stated that he wanted to "re-word" some of his previous statements after speaking with his management and police.
“For starters, I am not inciting violence or a protest. “Do not repeat that,” he stated.
“Secondly, all I'm saying is that liberty is critical. Listen to me, Wizard of Snoz (Berejiklian), and walk with the people. All I want to see is... that we allow people to live, that we allow people to smile, that we ease these lockdown laws.”
News.com.au contacted NSW Police and was informed that no officers had contacted Mr Turnell regarding his posts.
According to a NSW Police spokesman, there was "no evidence" that officers had contacted the rapper.
