Rick Ross obviously backtracked. After being criticized for making controversial remarks about sexual relations in the past, and in a recent “Breakfast Club” interview, Ross found himself back in the crosshairs after claiming that he couldn’t sign a woman to MMG because “he’d likely end up f**king the female rappers” thus complicating his business interests. The interview went viral, and today Ross responded to the backlash with a brief statement posted to Facebook, in which he calls his “insensitive” comment “a mistake.”
The rapper issued the following statement on Facebook apologizing for comments made a day prior.
“I want to address an insensitive comment I made on a very sensitive issue, especially in a minority dominated industry like hip hop,” the rapper wrote.
“My entire empire’s backbone is led by 2 of the strongest people I know and they happen to be women, my mother and sister. The operations wouldn’t run without them and I have the highest regard and respect for women in this industry. I have a daughter myself, my most cherished gift in the world.”

“My comment is not reflection of my beliefs on the issue. A mistake I regret. I hope to use my mistake, my platform and the community to create positive discussion to implement change on a very important issue. respect for the ones who stand up to say hey that isn’t right. Now it’s time to accept responsibility and all do better.”
“I look forward to continue working with & supporting female artists. my discovery process was documented by vh1 on #signed which premiered last night. Many of the most talented artists you’ll see in the running to be the next #MMG superstars are female artists. I look forward to clarifying my comments through my support.”
“Thank you to everyone who’s going through the journey with me, we coming out everyday stronger.”
