Soulja Boy Tellem made a special announcement online today stating that he is promising to portray a more positive image for the kids who look up to him:
What’s up, This ya boy Soulja Boy Tellem. ?I’ve got an announcement that I wanna make to all the parents out there whose kids are in love with me and all my fans who listen to my music. ?I just want to tell y’all that I apologize to all of the parents that have heard me say anything that they wouldn’t want their kids to hear coming from me. ?
Over the past few months, I’ve had a chance to meet a lot of my fans face-to-face and it made me realize that I’ve got a large fanbase of kids who look up to me. ?I realize now that I have a greater responsibility to the kids that want to be just like Soulja Boy. I need to set a positive example for them. ?I wouldn’t say a “role model” because I think that the parents or the guardians should be a kid’s main role mode but from now on, I’m gonna make sure that the kids who look up to me will get a positive image that the kids and the parents can trust.
Most celebrities try not to use the word “role model” but I don’t think I can help it though. When I meet parents and they tell me every city I go in ‘Soulja Boy my kids love you!’ I realize- you know – that I gotta do my thang…I gotta set a good example. ?I ain’t in no way perfect but I am clear that I gotta set a perfect example for all the kids that look up to me.?
Wow…I feel like I’m being Punk’d right about now. ?Ashton…did you send me this email?? 😕 ?
