Rapper T.I. apologizes after calling women 'too emotional' to run for president

In a recent interview with DJ Whoo Kid, Atlanta-born rapper T.I. said he wouldn't vote for Hillary Clinton because women are inherently emotional and irrational.

It didn't take long, however, before backlash prompted the rapper to apologize:

Perhaps T.I. acted... irrationally.
