Professor Green Sparks Outrage Over Bulimia Comment
Professor Green took to Twitter ahead of a trip to New York with his girlfriend Millie Mackintosh to say he hopes he doesn’t put on too much weight whilst in the Big Apple, where they are known for their larger-than-life food. However, the rapper started this talking point by saying: “Bulimia is quite an intelligent eating disorder…”
Inevitably, followers of the Hackney MC were horrified by his lack of consideration for people suffering with the disorder, yet the ‘Remedy’ rapper continued: “It would be easier just to chew food and spit it out but still, you get to eat whatever you want and stay skinny.”
He then wrote a tweet saying that he knew his ‘joke’ would not be appreciated before attempting to justify it by speaking of his trip: “Queue all the people who start telling me how insensitive I am and how bulimia jokes aren’t funny yadda yadda yadda.”
"I'm just trying to find a way to be in New York and not become a fat b*****d. I'm going to have maple syrup for blood by the time I leave this place."
He then tweeted to rectify a spelling mistake, saying: “Queue = cue. Apologies. That sin was far worse than making light of an eating condition.”
