Since then, Jeezy has chimed in with his thoughts on the unfortunate viral incident. Via Instagram, Jeezy posted the entire ordeal and said: “What part of this is protecting and serving. After you went and fought for the country. It’s like they wanted to take his masculinity to feed egos!! Let’s see what the government do about this. I see no threat, only a man that was confused and understood protocol.”

Jeezy continued, saying, “He asked the right questions. They didn’t have any answers. Shits break my heart to see a grown manhandled like an animal. Only in America.”
