BET blocked out XXXTentacion’s name in the freestyle’s broadcast.

Vic Mensa’s freestyle at BET’s 2018 Hip Hop Awards stirred up controversy ahead of its broadcast.

Shortly after the show was recorded, the 25-year-old Chicago rapper was criticized by attendees for dissing XXXTentacion and bringing up his abuse allegations during his freestyle, while the late rapper’s mother, Cleopatra Bernard, was in the audience.

The cypher aired Tuesday night on BET, and the network blocked out XXX’s name from Mensa’s freestyle.

Only time you bear arms is in a wife beater, loser/ Your favorite rapper’s a domestic abuser. / Name a single Vic Mensa song. XXX, we all know you won’t live that long. / I don’t respect niggas posthumously, homicide ain’t new to me.

XXX was shot and killed in June. The late rapper was facing a slew of domestic abuse allegations. He was facing 15 felony charges related to a 2016 domestic violence case, which included aggravated battery of a pregnant woman, domestic battery by strangulation, false imprisonment, and witness tampering.

Mensa had defended his comment and addressed the diss in a video posted his Instagram account with a caption that reads, “Domestic and sexual abuse are not excusable because you have talent or you are troubled.”

“I vehemently reject the trend in hip-hop of championing abusers, and I will not hold my tongue about it,” he says in the video. “I don’t give a fuck about getting attention. I care about bringing awareness, and holding people accountable for their actions.”
