T.I. is coming to the defense of his son, King Harris, after the teen hopped on IG Live in the middle of a heated argument with a Waffle House employee. In the clip, King is heard hurling curse words at employees and even making harmful threats. Hear what Papa Tip has to say about it all inside…
It appears the 17-year-old son of rapper T.I. and singer Tameka “Tiny” Harris got into an argument with Waffle House employees at an Atlanta area restaurant. It’s alleged the workers messed up his order by adding pickles to the meal. It’s unclear how he initially addressed the mistake, but King did turn on his camera to capture some of the argument.
”Everything you make, I can pull out my pocket right now. I ain’t trippin’ on you,” he said at the beginning of the video. “Get the hell out my face. I’m not talking to you. I’m not talking to you!,” he said in the clip.
An employee asked another employee to stop talking to King, which seemed to piss him off.
”Who the hell is he?” King asked.
”A person that works here,” the employee responded.
They started going back and forth, exchanging verbal blows.
”My name King, you know it. And yo mama know it. Tell your mama Happy Mother’s Day,” King said to the employee.
”I don’t know it,” the employee said.
That’s when they both started to antagonize one another to fight.
“I’ll show you what I do. Come here, c’mon,” King said. “I’m outside, come out and say something … Get yo employees,” he said as he walked out of the restaurant.
The celebuspawn eventually walked back inside the restaurant to get his food. As he’s leaving, he threatens to pistol whip one of the employees. Fans pointed out the fact King kept telling the employees, “Tell your mama Happy Mother’s Day,” so they believe the incident may have happened earlier this month even though it appeared online this week.
Watch it go down below:
King’s father, T.I., hopped on Instagram Live to respond to people slamming his son over the altercation. He said he and his uncles spoke to King about his actions.
”We were perplexed by his necessity to go back and forth with a short order cook,” he said. “I didn’t understand why he felt he needed to stop what he was doing to engage someone who is in such another level in life. Now, I had to explain to him when people are not living the way they hoped they would live and here you is [sic], walking in with such freedom and luxury. You know, people gone posture themselves a certain way. You gone have to enjoy your life. Remove yourself from that energy and enjoy your life.”
He questioned why THIS was "newsworthy," but no one is talking about how he graduated from high school early.
Peep the clip below:
The video went viral just days after King graduated from high school with honors.
“Shocked the sh*t outta me Celebration is definitely in order Twin did it,” Tip captioned on IG. “@the_next_king10 Graduates tomorrow… WITH HONORS Say what you want about him… but can’t say he ain’t handle his business. #ProudPops”
"Congratulations to our boy @the_next_king10 graduation was today & we came ready & geared up to show our love & support!! Thx to everyone who helped put everything together," Tiny captioned a collage of graduation pics.
King's little sister, Heiress Harris, graduated from kindergarten. Aww. Congrats, Heiress!
