Remember Jason Weaver
, the actor who played ‘Teddy’ on ‘A.T.L,’ well he’s in the news this week after making a statement online that caused a bit of an uproar.
Weaver felt ‘some kinda way’ about the online celebrations sparked by rapper Lil Boosie’s release from Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola this past Wednesday.
And while many made jokes about the rapper becoming a social media trending topic, Jason Weaver took to his Instagram to target the ‘over the top’ reaction from Lil Boosie’s fans and family… calling it “coon sh*t.”
…and this is coming from a person who was arrested for taking a dump in public.
