Vernon Reid and Axl Rose: Slur Wars

October 07, 1990

It's time that someone called Reid the prejudiced person that he is. What else would you call someone who condemns Guns N' Roses for its material but plays on Public Enemy's recording of "Sophisticated Bitch"?

His excuse for playing on that song was that it was about a particular type of person but not all women in general.

Hey, Vernon, maybe Guns N' Roses was just talking about you, but not all people in general.
