Killer Mike addresses NRA releasing his pro-gun interview on the same day as March For Our Lives

Killer Mike is hoping to "clear some stuff up" about his NRA interview released this weekend, in which he defended gun owners.

The NRA video dropped on the same day as March For Our Lives, the student activist-led rallies demanding gun control reform in the wake of the Feb. 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. "I told my kids on the school walkout, ‘I love you, [but] if you walk out that school, walk out my house,'” the rapper said in the clip, referring to student walkouts protesting gun violence. “We are a gun-owning family, we are a family that my sister farms, we are a family where we’ll fish and hunt, but we are not a family that jumps on every single thing that an ally of ours does because some stuff we just don’t agree with.”

On Sunday (March 25), Killer Mike posted two short videos of his own on Twitter to address the statements he made. "Love and respect to all," he wrote.

"I did an interview about black gun ownership in this era. That interview was used a week later by NRATV to disparage a very noble campaign that I actually support,” he explained.

“I'm sorry that an interview I did about a minority -- black people in this country -- and gun rights was used as a weapon against you guys. That was unfair to you and it was wrong, and it disparaged some very noble work you're doing," Killer Mike said, adding that he is an ally of the youth who organized March For Our Lives.

He continued to apologize: "It should never have been used in contrast to your march, and I think it's wrong. To the young people who worked tirelessly to organize, I'm sorry adults chose to do this. I'm sorry NRATV did that."
