” I think you’re a f**king funny little dweeb. You make me f**king laugh. I think you’re a dumba** f**king kid who got some p**sy that was too good for him and it got in his head and it f**ked you up.”
He went on to say: “I look at you like a victim. I don’t want to fight you, bro. I’m happy for your success. I’m happy for you, but if you look at me hard and you’re feeling some kind of way that you need to get this s**t f**king handled and you want to look at me hard and that’s what you want, slide up in the DMs, bro. I don’t want it, but if that’s what you want, you know where to find me, man.”
