Stevie Wonder unhappy about Lil Wayne's Emmett Till reference

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

 Stevie Wonder is calling out Lil Wayne for his reference to Emmett Till in the Future song "Karate Chop."

Till was a black teenager who was killed in 1955 for whistling at a white woman in Mississippi. Lil Wayne had a line in "Karate Chop" that compared a rough sex act to Till's death.

Wonder says Lil Wayne needs to have someone around him to tell him, "Don't do that." He says, "Imagine if that happened to your mother, brother, daughter or your son. How would you feel?"

Epic Records has taken down the song and promises the official version will not contain the reference.
